abit-nf2/s2g built-in ethernet controller
I have a abit-nf7s2g motherboard with builtin Via Technologies ethernet
controller. I cannot seem to get this working with suse's kernel version
lscpi returns -
Ethernet Controller : Via Technlogies Inc., Unknown Device (3119) rev11"
Also no device is created /dev/eth-bus-pci-xxxx. I also tried to
/dev/MAKEDEV /dev/eth0 - returns with "don't know how to make device".
I am pretty sure I installed the right driver from viaarena's web-site.
the Sbridge integrated ethernet driver. Also, all the installation steps
(compiled, executable(.ko) created and installed "insmod" ) went
thru fine without any error.
How do I debug futhur? Shouldnt the kernel atleast recognise the
device, even if the driver is not installed correctly?
