I have a Sohoware SFA110A Ethernet card which uses the tulip.o modules. So I got the new 2.5.14 kernel, and I selected it to include the tulip 24x1x (or whatever) card, which should work for mine (and works on my system right now with my 2.4.16), however, everytime i start up, it says:
Trying to configure eth0 by contacting DHCP server...
which is what its suppose to do, but it just gets this error and "resets" a few times then just gives up and my network doesn't work. it works with my current system, but i can't seem to get it to work. I have all the same setup for the kernel as my current one which works, i just can't seem to get it to work. Any help would be appreciated
Sohoware 10/100 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter (SFA110A)
The tulip code has gone through a lot of juggling in the past few 2.4.x kernels, so I assume twice as much in the beta 2.5.x series. Did you compile in the tulip code as part of the kernel, or as a module? Also, have you tried to invoke dhcp manually after init finishes with dhcpcd ethX?
i have tried it both as included, and as a modules. I have tried dhcpd eth0 afterwards aswell. Sohoware had some slightly modified drivers for the 2.4.x, but non for the 2.5.x. Is there a way to tell if its my dhcpd or my networkcard???
You said it works with your current setup but not with the new card. Are you clearing all the settings for the old card before you try to use the new one? I had a similar problem and I had to remove some config files to make sure I had installed the new nic. Just a thought though.
its not the new card. Its the new kernel. I just don't think it has the right support for my soho. One question, if i enabled module versions, should i be able to use a tulip module, for the 2.4.x (which works with my card) with my new 2.5.x??? cuz the 2.5.x tulip aint workin with my card. any help appreciated. Thanks for all the help already guys
