Slackware laptop cannot find eth0


Hello all,

I am very new to Linux and have a question.

I have just recently purchased Slackware and did the install. I am not at the point where I try and set up my NIC card, but or the life of me, I cannot get the operating system to recognize this NIC (I think).

Here is the hardware
Dell 7000 laptop
Version 3.2.5 PCMCIA card utility
Lynksys NP100 10/100 NIC

When I try to run the "ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.10 broadcast 192.168.1.255 \ netmask 255.255.255.0" it comes back not recognizing eth0 as follows:
SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
Eth0: Unknown interfacce : No such device
SIOCSIFBRDADDR: No such device
Eth0: Unknown interfacce : No such device

I read 5.1.2 of the slackware manual that addresses PCMCIA network devices and did find that the pcmcia package was installed as per the directories /etc/rc.d/<file:rc.pcmcia>; /etc/pcmcia; and /lib/modules/2.4.22/pcmcia.

I tried to take the card out and put it in again and found that there was no beep. The hard-drive does, however, light up for a moment each time I plug that card back in. I did also find that the PCMCIA Lynksys NP100 NIC is supposedly supported per another Linux laptop website.

I'm all out of ideas. Can you help me?

Do appreciate your time, and thank you.

...and modprobe pcnet_cs to load the driver for your PCMCIA network card.

Look at the dmesg output:
Code:
pcnet_cs: this is an AX88190 card!
pcnet_cs: use axnet_cs instead.
pcnet_cs: unable to read hardware net address for io base 0x300
Try modprobe -r pcnet_cs first to remove the pcnet_cs module, then try installing the axnet_cs driver: modprobe axnet_cs. After you have done that, check the dmesg output - it should have a line or two about the axnet module (if it failed or worked, plus perhaps some other useful information).

Made sense, but when I tried to remove pcnet_cs and added axnet_cs, it appears not to have changed anything when I ran dmesg. It still printed out the code:
pcnet_cs: this is an AX88190 card!
pcnet_cs: use axnet_cs instead.
pcnet_cs: unable to read hardware net address for io base 0x300

Any other ideas that I could try?

Hmm, I did a little Googling on this and found this interesting post. It relates to SuSE but it's still interesting and it could be worth a try.

I also am running slackware on a Dell 7000 and had problems when install the network card. Using netconfig it says to setup the card as a loopback. However, when I did this it could not find the card, but when I installed it as DCHP it found the card right away, though it required a reboot to getit working properly.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for your insight. I do not understand much about linux yet. Can you tell me what to type in to try to have my card recognized?

Thanks
