Slackware 12.2 Default Install eth0 not found


I've read several other threads, but none I've found so far addressed how eth0 was discovered.

I am on slackware12.2, full default install. kernel 2.6.27.7-smp

No connectivity when I boot up, so I went to trusty ifconfig -a

Code:
lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
No eth0. Okay, let's look at lspci -v. I see my card. First the ethernet card by itself:

Sounds good. After digging around, it sounds like this Gigabit NIC uses drive e1000e

Code:
\sbin\modprobe e1000e
Set up the alias:
Code:
alias eth0 e1000e
Reboot, but no connectivity. No eth0 when running ifconfig -a.

I look to /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

but there is no such file.

So I run lsmod | grep e1000e
Code:
e1000e                103080  0
Okay, the module was loaded. Great.

dmesg | grep eth
Code:
HP Compaq Laptop series board detected. Selecting BIOS-method for reboots.
Driver 'st' needs updating - please use bus_type methods
Driver 'sd' needs updating - please use bus_type methods
Driver 'sr' needs updating - please use bus_type methods
I can try to update those modules, but they don't seem to pertain to my NIC card issues. Any ideas?

Hello sycarion,

try:
Quote:
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 eth0_up
as root.
If this doesn't work, please post the eth0-part of your /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf.

Thank you for the quick response. Many thanks.

Did not work. here is the eth0 part of rc.inet.conf

note: I cannot assign this computer a static IP address

Code:
# config information for eth0:
IPADDR[0]=""
NETMASK[0]=""
USE_DHCP[0]="yes"
DHCP_HOSTNAME=[0]""
thanks again.

One other note

Forgot to add one more piece of critical information. Sorry about that.

Added /etc/rc.d/rc.netdevice

Code:
/sbin/modprobe e1000e
the module is being loaded when I boot.

Thanks again for any and all help.

What does /sbin/ifconfig say after executing the "rc.inet1 eth0_up"?

It remains unchanged. It still says:

I downloaded the latest driver from Intel.
Build it as kernel module.
modprobe e1000e

Then I could see eth0 when I ran ifconfig.

Hooray.

Feeling tired, I went the lazy way out and enable the eth0 interface inside KDE.

Thanks Markus for all your help. I guess the answer is that the kernel module is too old for my hardware.

Hey, guys.

I have a similar question. I have Slackware 12.0 installed (kernel: 2.6.21.5-smp). I can't access network due to my network card not being recognized. After booting the PC and logging in as root I run dmesg and see this:
Code:
eth0: 0000:01:08.0, 00:0C:F1:DA:3B:CC, IRQ 21.
  Board assembly 000000-000, Physical connectors present: RJ45
  Primary interface chip i82555 PHY #1.
  General self-test: passed.
  Serial sub-system self-test: passed.
  Internal registers self-test: passed.
  ROM checksum self-test: passed (0x04f4518b).
Also tried to find whether the drivers are loaded. Here is the lsmod output (edited):
Code:
Module                  Size  Used by
ipv6                  254496  10 
iptable_nat            10116  0

ata_generic             9220  0 
i2c_i801               11408  0
The lspci command shows such ethernet controller:
Code:
01:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB PRO/100 VE (LOM) Ethernet Controller (rev 81)
If I run:
  • ifconfig I only see loopback adapter;
  • ethtool eth0 I get a No Such Device errors;
  • netconfig - nothing happens (there was and is - loopback adapter only);
  • ifconfig eth0 up - error while getting flags;
  • /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 eth0_up - nothing happens or changes.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Problem solved.

Recompiled the kernel (to 2.6.21.5) with new modules to find out that i had this interface configured before. It was just marked as eth2. Forgot to use ifconfig -a which listed it. Then I changed the name in /etc/udev/rules.d and now everything works.

Anyways, thank you.
