tulip with redhat 9
Here's the situation...installed redhat 9 on my system, wasn't terribly pleased with the performance, so I opted to download a stock 2.4.21 kernel, compile, and install it. All well and good so far. I do a make mrproper, make xconfig, make dep clean bzImage modules modules_install install, and reboot. So far, so good. I reboot, and my first problem is that my machine can't find the root partition with the entry root=LABEL=/ (the redhat 9 default, which works for my other kernel), so I switch it to root=/dev/hdf2 (which is where my root partition lives). This works fine. Now, the real problem; whether I compile tulip as a module, or directly into the kernel, it ALWAYS fails to initialize the NIC. I've tried this with both a Linksys LNE100TX and a generic DECchip 21041 NIC I had laying around...same thing, both times. Both cards work fine under the redhat installed 2.4.20-19.9 kernel with the tulip driver, and neither works under the stock 2.4.21 kernel. Anyone got any ideas?
