Help me ! How to config eth0 on LFS ???


This is my configure (eth on board)
-------------------------
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=yes
IPADDR=10.0.0.200
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
BROADCAST=10.0.0.255
-------------------------
Mainboard Asus A8V
CPU AMD 3000+
512MB DDR 400
HDD 80Gb

LFS kernel 2.6.14

I have installed eth0's driver.

When booting the LFS, it doesn't recognize eth0.

Why ??? What's wrong ???

Please help me !!! Thanks

Did you compile it as a module, or as part of the kernel?

I used driver for eth0 on the CD (main board)
Name of my NIC is Marvell SysKonnect 1Gb on board
I installed its driver - sklin98 (as a module).

As root, run:

/sbin/modprobe mii
/etc/rc.d/init.d/network start

And it should work.

Hi guys,

Not as if i can solve the tread's question...so sorry...i know this is not the right tread to start but i think u guys are e best person to answer my puzzleless mind.

i am a newbie in linux using RH 9 juz 2mths,

i hv this question: since Linux can change//compile//add modules//source from scratch & all,

Y is there the need for users to upgrade distro till FC4?
Understanding its a better version...with better capabilities.

Isn't it that we can compile, write files & we get the same results or are there any OS propietory restriction or difficulties in itself?
Understanding its open source too.

Is'nt recompiling's the fun part of linux, something like doing a(creating a <LFS> Linux From Scratch).

Or it takes someone//super smart with a strong C language to write it & set the OS up?
Or i got the LFS meaning wrong?

pls advise.............
thanks

Sure, you could checkout the latest, cutting edge version of Xorg from SVN and compile and install it. You can do that on any distribution if you have the balls. However, the benefits of doing so are close to nil, and alot of the time the disadvantages (instability, insecurity) outweigh the advantages.

I think that's what you wanted to know.

No restrictions, your distribution can't prevent you from compiling something.

Some people think so. But most people don't. Compiling is sometimes pretty damn annoying. Sometimes I wish I could just 'apt-get blah' (and I could if I really wanted to).

You don't need to know any C to compile things (unless there's an error in the source code, which there very rarely is), or to set things up.

The LFS meaning.

Hope this helps.
