I installed a new debian sarge (2.4.27) on my PC. My network card (Marvell Yukon 88e8053) was not detected automatically by the installer even though the right driver (sk98lin) was offer in the list(it was working on my Fedora Core 3). So I've skipped the network part to set up my network card manually.
That's what I am trying to do now...
# lspci //shows me :
0000:03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd.: Unknown device 4362 (rev 15)
I install sk98lin driver :
# modprob sk98lin
#lsmod //gives :
sk98lin 182288 0 (unused) // Mmmm... unused!
Then my problem starts :
#ifconfig eth0 //is not really running :
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:11:09:02
BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
# dhclient //give the same result as
# ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.5
I get a nice hexadecimal text... Including :
dev : <NULL> kernell BUG at skbuff.c : 93!
interrupt handler - not syncing
Nice... I can only press the reset button. Basically, I see that the install of my driver is not clean. Do you think that patching my kernel with sk98lin and rebuilding it will work better? What else can I try?
