Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

thanks for giving attention..
i have a problem regarding my lan card(i.e of suercom Ethernet adaptar). I have two lan card as one for internet connection and second for home networking. My second nic is not detected. I have tried it by the rhine II driver supported by RHEL4(Kernel 2.6).
I also tried to compile the driver rhinefet.tgz as
tar xzvf /tmp/rhinefet.tgz
it shows as:
But i am not getting the file named rhinefet.o or rhinefet.ko(as linux.txt says)were i cd and execute commend make.
My configuration are:
945 intel motherboard
80 Gb SATA hdd2
1 gb RAM
This is the best of my knowledge.
Will any one help me how to proceed(i.e to install the driver). it will realy a great help.
Did you try to use the common via-rhine driver to see if it works? Try:
If that doesn't work, then run "make" in the directory you extracted the driver source and watch for any errors.
If there are no errors try to load the driver into the kernel (it should be rhinefet.ko since you use a 2.6 kernel):
I've tried to compile the latest driver in 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 kernels just for testing and it failed. But it compiles fine in 2.6.8 and 2.4.31 kernels. So I guess it's not compatible with the newest kernels. I think that the via-rhine module included with your kernel should work. What happens when you modprobe it? What is the output of "dmesg"?
Also for the Intel nic try:
after running modprobe via-rhine in dmsg i foun entry as:
via-rhine.c:v1.10-LK1.2.0-2.6 June-10-2004 Written by Donald Becker
eth0: VIA RHine III at 0x50001000, 00:02:44:af:c8:fd, IRQ11.
eth0: MII PHY found at address 1, status 0x7849 advertising 05e1 Link 000.
No entry for Eht1.
the name of my ehternet adaptar which i got from my p is
So your rhine nic works and it gets the eth0 interface. Doing a little search it seems that surecom uses via chipsets, so you're set. As for eth1 try to modprobe the intel modules (e100 or e1000) and watch dmesg output.
i have tried modprobe e1000 &modprobe e100 but no result for eht1.
One thing i missed to tell u that my intel adapter is comming up insted of suercom adapter because when i execute command ifconfig it shows the address as 126.96.36.199 , which is of my intel NIC.(as it is connected to internet).
yeh u r write. my intel adaptar is not working. now tell me what to do to detect the adapter name Intel(R) pro/100 ve .
this was the o/p of lspci
04:00.0 Ethernet controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6105 [Rhine-III] (rev 8b)
04:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corp.: Unknown device 27dc (rev 01)
the o/p of dmesg are
divert: not allocating divert_blk for non-ethernet device lo
divert: allocating divert_blk for eth0
eth0: VIA Rhine III at 0x50001000, 00:02:44:af:c8:fd, IRQ 11.
eth0: MII PHY found at address 1, status 0x786d advertising 05e1 Link 0021.
divert: not allocating divert_blk for non-ethernet device sit0
Can u tell me from where i got the driver for Intel(R) Pro/100 Ve for kernel(2.6)?
The driver is already included in your kernel modules (the e100 module). If "modprobe e100" works with no errors try to assign IP address to see what happens:
ifconfig eth1 192.168.0.10 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
If you get no such device, perhaps you have to play with your BIOS settings (set or unset PnP) to see if lspci recognizes your Intel nic correctly.
You can also take a look here to see how you can build the driver and how to debug it.
