Woody 2.2.20 kernel and zen1200 (rtl-8139) nic .. missing files or just confusion.
Im newbie so go easy on me...
Toshiba portege 3110ct
Zonet Zen1200 (realtek 8139) pcmcia NIC
NO EXTRAS (cdrom,portreplicator)
Multiboot w2k and Woody
Kernel 2.2.20 should support realtek 8139 card but i get wery strange results with this card (w2k works with the thing like a charm).
The strange thing is that on boot it gets an irq0?!?!? when i do modprobe 8139too it does not give any errors... ok then when i type ifconfig eth0 it show's the adapter (w/o adresses and stuff) ok so i try ifconfig eth0 up whitch produces: siocsifflags: Device or resource busy error?!?!?
Also i can not assign any setings to that adapter.
lsmod shows that 8130too is loaded amongst needed pcmcia modules.
According to pcmcia-howto it cant identify the card properly (one low beep)
So i tryed to manually add needed lines to /etc/pcmcia/config this produces error: config error, file 'config' line 134: unknown device: 8139too
Config file added lines (consulted with pcmcia-howto and man pages):
device "Cardbus, 10/100 Ethernet Card, , "
class "network" module "8139too"
And the section where the ,,error'' occures
card "Cardbus, 10/100 Ethernet Card, , "
pci 0x10ec, 0x8139
What's wrong? Before you tell me to upgrade my kernel to 2.4 keep in mind that i do not have the means (CDROM,NETWORK).
I have surffed 3 nights in a row and ended up here...
Any ideas are welcome (exept changing the nic and upgrading the kernel).
