    probing problem

    hi there, i am just new in this forum and this is my last resort...ive been asking question in lots of channels in irc regarding slackware

    my problem is that...i am using a modem router and then during the installation process in my machine i have to use SCSI.S in booting the kernel in the start of installation...and then the problem is my lancard will only be detected if i'll answer YES in the hotplugging question during the installation but if i will answer NO it wont detect my lancard...and then after the installation is finish...and then i will boot the slackware... it will just hang up in the cheking of syslog -3 something like that

    i've tried installing slackware before and they all worked fine but here in my pc really has alot of problem like in HOTPLUGING in PROBING i dunno if this is because of the incompatibility of my board or my hardware!

    hope to have a reply soon! thanks in advance guys!

    Well then, choose not to load hotplug at start-up. When you need your lan card, start hotpluging manualy:
    chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug
    /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug start
    If it reports an error then it is probably a resource conflict.

    I've tried your suggestion...and it gives me this error

    root@jupenz:/etc/apache# /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug start
    ./hotplug.functions: line 127: 1014 Segmentation fault $MODPROBE $MODULE >/dev/null 2>&1

    all i want is to make the slackware detect my lancard so that i can connect to the internet

    What lan card do you have ? Try loading the drivers yourself with modprobe and bringing the card up. Do you know which module you are suppose to load I My card is supported by the module eepro100 so I do something like this:

    modprobe eepro100
    ifconfig eth0 up

    ive tried modprobe 8139too
    and then i have that result but the problem is when i tried to use ifconfig eth0 or ifconfig it hanged up and i dunno if the result is just being delayed i dunno...maybe something wrong with it!

    You're loading the wrong driver I think

    the intel isnt a realtek chipset for a start

    try this:

    modprobe eepro100
    if you want to check you have the module first

    modprobe -l | grep eepro100
    if you want to find out some options about it

    modinfo eepro100
    check the output of the 'dmesg' command to see what it says after loading the module, then configure the device with ifconfig or netconfig.
