Onboard 3com ethernet [a7n8x deluxe] on slackware 9.0 problems
 
Hi i've been around linux and slackware for a little while but i've never had an onboard lan before... i've installed slackware and have everything working except LAN

netconfig cannot find it when it probes and i've tried a patch to 3c90x module but to no avail... i know it works cause i'm in windows now and it's worked with mandrake... if anyon can shed some light on this for me i'd be very thankful...

Have you installed the latest nforce linux driver package?

And what does "lspci -vv" have to say about the on board network chips?

Ok... i installed the new nvidia nforce2 drivers and it seemed to install ok... netconfig's probe seemed to work now as well ... but still cannot ping anything besides the loopback (127.0.0.1) everything else tries but says network unreachable... lspci -v finds the 3com ethernet adapter....
but still doesn't work

I don't think the second NIC on that board is a 3com, I think it's a broadcom chip, lspci -vv will settle the question.
