I have been having trouble with my sis900 neytwork card in slacwkare. I tried to modprobe the sis900, it didnt give me any errors but it didnt load it. so I put in a realtek 8139 network card and tried it too. These are the errors i get with the two cards when trying to do insmod on either of them:. I would much prefer if i could get my sis900 working, it works fine in redhat using the sis900 module.
i put in a realtek 8139 card and tried it. this is the error i got when doing "insmod 8139too":
