rtl 8139D Ethernet card problem


I used to use an older realtec eth card before, but had to change to this (rtl 8139d)ethernet and thats when my problem started...

The problem is simple... linux does not detect the card at all... now what do i do????

i am using FC5, is it possible to get a linux driver for this??? the documentation says:

TCP/IP for SCO UNIX as a supported network driver, does this have anything to do with Linux????

Please dont give me the simple and direct answer "The card is not supported by Linux" cos i believe NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE IN LINUX!!!!!
So there should be something that can be done

Thanx in advance...

are you using the right driver? 8139too perhaps?
you can also show us the output of
# lsmod
# lspci -v | grep ethernet -i

Look in your /lib/modules/2.xxx/kernel/drivers/net/ for files with 8139, where xxx should resemble your kernel from uname -r.

Try modprobe the 8139 files. If one of these two doesn't work there might be a couple of older ones that you may need to compile or find, maybe at the rpm bone site.

Hi,

I have 2 file in this dir /lib/modules/2.xxx/kernel/drivers/net
so now how to modprobe this files . two files are 8139cp.ko and 8139too.ko .
And in modeprobe.conf file this line is also added
alias eth1 8139too.

but still unable to detect the card.

Regards

As root:

Code:
modprobe 8139cp
modprobe 8139too
Only do these one at a time.

I'm not sure how your system works but if one of these loads, (you don't get error message), then try to restart net. On my system this is done by:

As root:
Code:
sh /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1d restart
Looking at my fc9 which I don't use or know very well I see: /etc/rc.d/inet.d/network, so you should look and see how your layout is.
Assuming one of the drivers above loaded, you might want to try:
As root:
Code:
sh /etc/rc.d/inet.d/network restart
If none of this works you will have to post more info. What motherboard and cards do you have. Output from lspci, lsmod, dmesg. Maybe remove (from the post) non-relevant parts such as snd files. I'm not sure how you show this in fc5 as fc9 does not have these utilities loaded.
