Question eth0 doesn't show in Debian with ifconfig after dual boot with Mandrake9.2


Hi

I have a Samsung T10 laptop. I installed Debian (WOODY) on it leaving 30GB of free space. Then I installed Mandrake 9.2 on the free space.

During the origonal install of Debian, I set up my ethernet card (INTEL 100 PRO) and it connected to my gateway fine. I could see the net!

Next step was to install Mandrake. This, too, went well. I changed the boot loader to Grub, configured it to boot to both OS's and all seemed ok.

The problems start when I boot to Debian. It no longer recognises my ethernet card. If I do 'ifconfig' I only get results for 'lo', nothing for 'eth0'???

Everything was origonaly setup using DHCP. Mandrake still works fine.

How can I get things back on track? I don't need to use DHCP, but it would be better for my setup (I also need to connect to the network at work as well!!)

If it helps, here is how I partitioned...

DEBIAN
hda1 /boot 30MB ext3
hda2 / 4000MB ext3
hda5 SWAP 512

hda6 Free space - installed Mandrake (don't know partitions...)

Thanks for any help
Steve

What happens when you start the eth0 device:
ifconfig eth0 up

ifconfig eth0 up

eth0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device.

Also, if I do 'dmesg |grep eth0 - there are no results!

It would seem that somehow during the install of Mandrake as the second OS, it has somehow damaged my network on the Debian system. I should also add that I am not using an X interface with Debian (a work thing...)

The driver I installed during setup was eepro100.

All sorted now. If any one is thinking of dual booting with Debian(WOODY) & Mandrake9.2, it proved slightly tricky for me (on a samsung T10 laptop), so be warned....
