where to set up "modprobe 3c59x" to load nic driver on boot?


Hi all,

I'm using Debian unstable, and i found that I had a small networking problem. Through some searching, i found that I need to "modprobe 3c59x" (load the 3com nic driver) to bring up eth0. So I was wondering in which file I should do the modprobe command so that it is executed on every system boot (something in /etc/init.d maybe)? Thanks so much for any help. Peace.

Assuming you actually have the module entered in /etc/modules, then all you need to do is open a console as root and type
Code:
update-modules
. It should load everytime you boot afterwards.

you may try modconf, which config your device automatically.
