Onboard Nvidia Ethernet in Suse 9.1 64bit


Hi folks, can't get the above to work on my MSI K8N Neo2 mobo.

Have downloaded and "run" the appropriate 64 bit drivers from the Nvidia site and the module, "nvnet" appears when I do a listmod command. However "modprobe nvnet" returns nothing in the console.

Anyone help me to get onto the net in Linux (typing this in 32bit windows if you're wondering :-| )

Thanks for any advice and please note I am a frustrated linux noob (have been trying different distros for a year or two but always give up cos I can't get various things to work)

If the module is already loaded you shouldn't need to modprobe it. What is the output from the following commands?

ifconfig -a

route -n

What is the network topology?
good luck.

It looks like the interface is recognized, just not configured. Are you using dhcp? Have you tried setting a static ip address?
good luck.

The problem

Comes early down the line than that - even though it shows up as a module when I go into the control panel in SUSE and click on network devices it says none are present - and in the drop down list the Nvidia device isn't there. Is there any way I can configure it in the console?

Any help appreciated because I don't want to abandon Linux again for another 6 months - I need to be able to get on the net to use this distro properly

SUSE 9.3 pro 64 bit onboard ethernet on nvidia nforce

Hello

Hope you are still replying to messages here. I have a new ASRock 939NF4G-SATA2 mobo. I was able to install SUSE 9.3 pro by connecting an external SONY USB DVD drive. The SATA drive works but the IDE drive is not recognized, nor is the internal Liteon DVD drive (IDE also). I have an Intel 100s that works in here, but can't get the onboard ethernet card to be recognized. I may have not loaded the nVidia d software correclty, or maybe I have but need to do more configs.

I might try SUSE 10, 10.1 is coming soon but I think I may still have the same issues. I could live without the IDE hard drive and maybe withot the internal NIC, but the lack of internal CD/DVD is a problem.

Here are the two commands (as you can see there are many things not recognized)

Thanks,

suse-bobo
