eth0 can't be found in slackware


I have a nvidia nforce network controller. I have tried installation script which is published at producters page(www*DOT*nvidia*DOT*com/object/linux_nforce_amd64_1.0-0310*DOT*html), but it can't be useful...

Can you give us the exact error message(s) you are getting and a description of the problem?

There is no error message. It can't probe the driver when I run netconfig. Why does not the operation system create eth0 automatically?

Slackware doesn't have hardware discovery unlike some other more automagical distros. If you look in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf you should see a place to configure eth0. If you use DHCP you can just set USE_DHCP[0] to "yes" If not, you have to fill in the other stuff.

The network is supposed to get started automagically from rc.inet1

Both these scripts should be marked executable.

I don't remember running netconfig, I think I just edited these scripts and used mostly the defaults. It was a 2 minute job.
