Slackware v10 + Ethernet Card


Hi

Im trying to get Linux (Slackware V10) installed on my MiniITX system, i've got it all installed and working fine, apart from the network card. Its an onboard NIC, in the motherboard (Epia MII10000).

I have been trying for many hours to get it to work, but failing everytime!

When typing "insmod rhinefet" i get prompted with the attached error, excuse the pics but its the best i could do.... The first picture shows that is it seeing the NIC as eth0. The next two show you the error i get.

I cant attached the pictures just yet, as i need to get some more posts. I'll be happy to email them to anyone who needs them

The error is something along the lines of:

/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/net/rhinefet.o: init_module: No such device

I have checked that location, and the file defiantely is there.

on my system i use the via-rhine.o module, not the same mobo, but can't see it's different. your error complains that there is no hardware found, not the driver software.

btw, my itx system: http://mini-itx.com/projects/animalsnes

Hi, and thanks for the reply

I bought all my stuff from that site, and looked at yours before i did, very different! lol

So, if i change it to try the via-rhine.o, it might find it then? Will see what it does, and get back! lol

/lib/modules/2.??.??/drivers/net/ normally, but i couldn't say, maybe you don't have it at all. i'll double check what i have when i get home in an hour or so, i run an average gentoo build on my system, couldn't day if the slack one has it built as default, couldn't see why not.

just try "modprobe via-rhine" and it should find it from where ever.
