NIc CARD problem in RHEL5
I dont know what is the problem.
I dont know how to solve the problem
If it's truly urgent, I suggest you call RedHat since you're paying for their support with enterprise linux. Go through the RedHat network configuration tool, select your interface, and provide it the information it needs, such as an address, gateway, etc.
if ur network card is realtek 8168(newer one)
#lsmod |grep r8169 -----> redhat detected u r card is r8169 Series
to remove allready existing driver
unpack the driver you downloaded from the site in my case realtek
#tar vjxf <downloaded tarfile.tar.bz2>
#cd< tar file directory>
#make clean modules
#modprob r8168 // this is ur installed driver
You can check Ur driver is loaded or not
#lsmod |grep r8168
#ifconfig ethX up X is 0,1,2....
