I don't remember what ethernet card I have, but it is not 3Com. I am away from my computer, so I could not check.
In my original question, I stated the eth0 is brought up, but I was wrong. sorry.
From the logs, I noticed that modeprob is looking for /lib/modules/18.104.22.168/modules.dep. And I only have /lib/modules/22.214.171.124.ntpl/modules.dep. I don't even have the 126.96.36.199 directory. I create 188.8.131.52 directory and copied the /lib/modules/184.108.40.206.ntpl/modules.dep over. Doesn't work, said something about "not ELF format". I then delete the copied modules.dep file and create a symbolic link to /lib/modules/220.127.116.11.ntpl/modules.dep.
Doesn't work either, and this time modules.dep in /lib/modules/18.104.22.168.ntpl/modules.dep is empty !
How do I generate a modules.dep file ?
Is modules.dep generated at boot time ? How does modeprob work ? Is there a way to specify which directory to look for modulles.dep file ?
Thanks in advance,
