I'm fairly new to linux although we use it a lot on my degree course so I've installed it at home (Red Hat 9.0).
Anyway I've been trying to get my nforce2 onboard LAN working, without much success.
I installed "NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.rh90up_2.4.20_6.athlon.rpm" from nvidia.com and the device appeared in networking - although I couldn't activate it - "eth0 nvnet doesn't seem to be present" (or something similar), this error also appears on boot... <same as> delaying initialisation.. [FAILED].
I tried removing it using rpm -e.. although it says .."is not installed", trying installing it using rpm it says ..."is already installed" lol...
So I tried installing "NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.rh90up_2.4.20_9.athlon.rpm" then, same error (i.e. "doesn't seem to be present, delaying initialisation").
My kernel is 2.4.20-8... I wasn't sure if the driver's meant up to <x> (from the file name) or not, thats why I ended up trying both :/
Sorry if im sounding like a complete noob here, we all start somewhere
Any help/advice appreciated greatly.
