A7N8X Deluxe problems in 2.6 - sound and ethernet
I've been trying to upgrade my SuSE 9 system to the 2.6.1 kernel, and for the most part it's been easy enough. I was able to get the nVidia drivers for my GeForce FX card to work in 2.6 easily enough, but I'm getting extremely frustrated that I can't get the onboard NIC (3Com) nor the sound to work.
I've searched around and as far as I can tell the kernel supports both of these right off the bat, and I do have the relevant modules compiled. I've gone through the YaST setup for sound and for network card many many times, removing the device and letting it be autodetected again, to no avail. The network setup appears to complete successfully, but the ethernet card never gets loaded, while the soundcard setup gives a failure message.
I'd really like to be able to work in 2.6 normally. Any help would be appreciated.
