System is not detecting the two NIC's simultaneously


Hello all,
few days back i pluged in 2nd NIC on my Slackware 10.0 machine. Initially it did not recognize it......means although it was showing its entry in
Code:
#lspci
but ever after configuring it through
Code:
#vi /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf
ifconfig eth1 was throwing error
Code:
root@bond:~# ifconfig eth1
eth1: error fetching interface information: Device not found
root@bond:~#
but somehow ( i really don't know how, b'coz i didn't did anything ) it started working.

Then due to some reasons i reinstalled Slackware 10.0 yesterday. Now again i'm facing the same problem.

Now the entries of lspci are:

Code:
root@bond:~# lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. 82810 GMCH [Graphics Memory Controller Hub] (rev 03)
00:01.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corp. 82810 CGC [Chipset Graphics Controller] (rev 03)
00:1e.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corp. 82801AA PCI Bridge (rev 02)
00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corp. 82801AA ISA Bridge (LPC) (rev 02)
00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corp. 82801AA IDE (rev 02)
00:1f.2 USB Controller: Intel Corp. 82801AA USB (rev 02)
00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp. 82801AA AC'97 Audio (rev 02)
01:0b.0 Ethernet controller: MYSON Technology Inc SURECOM EP-320X-S 100/10M Ethernet PCI Adapter
01:0d.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
root@bond:~#
Now what i did, i removed both of them and then inserted them one at a time
when i pluged the "MYSON" one, during configuring it said
Quote:
A network card using fealnx.o module has been detected
and that time running
Code:
lsmod
was showing this modules entry in it.

then i repeated the whole procedure for "Realtek" card, it said
Quote:
A network card using the 8139too.o module has been detected
Now i plug the "MYSON", with "Realtek" already plugged in.
but now its not detecting the "MYSON".

root@bond:~#
You can see that its showing the module "8139too" only and not "fealnx.o" ( which it was showing when only "MYSON" was plugged in )

so what i tried to do now is to add the module "fealnx.o"

Code:
root@bond:~# /sbin/modprobe fealnx.o
modprobe: Can't locate module fealnx.o
root@bond:~#
Now what should i do ???

one more thing i tried.

#make xconfig
and then loading the ".config"..........then i was checking for ethenet cards.
i'm quoting few lines what i thought as relevent.

Quote:
m Myson MTD-8xx PCI Ethernet support
m Realtek RTL-8139 C+ PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter support ( experimental )
m Realtek RTL-8139 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter support
n Use PIO instead of MMIO
y Support for uncommon RTL-8139 rev.k (automatic channel equilization )
y Support for older RTL-8129/8130 boards.
seeking for guidance

regards

To load a module use this command ' /sbin/modprobe fealnx ' without the ' .o '.

See if that works. If it does then you can add it to your /etc/modules.conf or it may be called /etc/modprobe.conf and make it look similiar to your current alias eth0 line.

Hope this helps

gr8 !!!
It worked.

as you instructed, i loaded the module using the command

Code:
#/sbin/modprobe fealnx
then after typing the command
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 stop
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 start
i run "ifconfig".............and eth1 was there.

then i edited /etc/modules.conf ( i think /etc/modprobe.conf is for 2.6.x kernels )
and added the lines
Code:
alias eth0 8139too
alias eth1 fealnx
and then reboot

Now everything seems to be working fine.
Thanks a lot "Brain 1"

regards

Hello there,
one more question is there....

In the above case the NIC cards were different hence were using different modules.
Suppose same cards are there requiring the same modules.........then ??
