After upgrading to Kernel 2.4 - Ethernet doesn't work!


Okay, so here's the deal. I had my Debian system up and running perfectly, but then I decided I wanted to try upgrading my Kernel from 2.2 to 2.4. I used apt-get and followed the commands to install the new kernel, and everything seemed to work fine (even my Voodoo5 card worked, and that was always my biggest problem). However, when I tried to go online I realized that my NIC (running tulip driver) was no longer working. I have tried everything I can think of to get the thing working, and have gotten nowhere.

This is what's happening:
when I do `locate tulip.o` it finds a copy in the 2.4 kernel's modules/drivers/net directory (I'm not at home now so I can't give the exact directory) - so it seems to be the right driver

when I do `lsmod -v` there is no reference to tulip
when I do `lspci -v` it recognizes my card in IRQ5
when I do `insmod tulip` it gives me the error
"
Code:
 tulip.o: init_module: No such device 
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters "
Again, I'm sorry I don't have the exact output, but since I'm not near the system that's the best I can do. I do know that the /etc/modutils/aliases file has ``alias eth0 tulip" in it. Any suggestions??

Question Re: After upgrading to Kernel 2.4 - Ethernet doesn't work! ( post #1)

It sounds like you included the tulip driver when you recompiled the kernel, otherwise tulip.o would not be in the .../2.4.21/kernel/drivers/net directory. What happens when you try:

modprobe tulip

That might do it...

Yet again, I'm not home right now to look at the exact results, but I know that I did try that and I remember getting an error. I believe it said "No such device" followed by
or something of that sort.

Or something of that sort. But from what I have seen everywhere I look, that error message seems to be a general "hint" that it gives and really doesn't mean much...

Hi,
If you've not already done so, you might try looking in /var/log/ (messages, syslog, and dmesg files), for hints about what is going on.

Although I haven't tried it yet, it sounds like you may need to run modconf. Your 2.2 kernel may have had the tulip driver compiled right in to it, while the 2.4 kernel seems to have it configured as a module.

Let us know what you try and how it goes.

the tulip module (and several others) has been changed in 2.4, try this:

modprobe de4x5

Note: there is a tulip driver but it is in a separate directory, it's in:
/lib/modules/2.4.*/kernel/drivers/net/tulip
you may need to be either copy or link it to:
/lib/modules/2.4.*/kernel/drivers/net/
so the kernel can find it.

Im back - problem still exists

Hey all,
Things got a little hectic for the last month or so, so I didnt have a chance to even LOOK at my system. I still do have the same problem however. If anyone still has any advice for me, I would really appreciate it since I need my linux box more now than ever!

I have tried each of these suggestions and have come up with nothing thus far.

Here is what I get in my gmesg file:

Sorry, I know that is WAY to much useless information, but I am at a COMPLETE loss. I really have NO idea what to do now. Thanks a lot!

I don't know if this will answer your question or not. I have a linksys card, which use tulip drivers. For the longest time I couldn't get it to work in any of the 2.4 kernels, even following the instructions on which kernel options to compile from the linksys website. I'm behind a router and was never able to ping beyond it. Then one day someone told me to compile "socket filtering" and "packet filtering" into the kernel, and it worked great. They are under the networking options section. Again I'm not sure if that's the answer in this case, but you might want to give it a try.
