Unhappy cannot compile tulip.c


hi, please help, I've got a huge headache in my eye

I cannot compile tulip.c on slackware 8.0 as per the instructions found on http://www.scyld.com/expert/modules.html I download the files pci-scan.c pci-scan.h kern_compat.h and tulip.c and try:

gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/net/ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c tulip.c `[ -f /usr/include/linux/modversions.h ] && echo -DMODVERSIONS`

......and

gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -O6 -c tulip.c

and variations of this found on several sites but what I get is this:

.......................etc

I've recompiled kernel 2.4.5 w/DECchip Tulip (dc21x4x) PCI support loaded as <M> module

cat /proc/modules shows:

tulip 38144 0 (unused)
via-rhine 10336 1
sb 7312 1
sb_lib 34224 0 [sb]
uart401 6256 0 [sb_lib]
sound 57680 1 [sb_lib uart401]
soundcore 3824 4 [sb_lib sound]
ppp_deflate 39008 0 (unused)
ppp_async 6864 0 (unused)
ppp_generic 19280 0 [ppp_deflate ppp_async]
slip 8416 0 (unused)
lp 6096 0 (unused)
parport_pc 19312 1
parport 23776 1 [lp parport_pc]

troubleshooting on the previous link suggests:

cd /usr/src/linux; make include/linux/version.h

but I get:

make: `include/linux/version.h' is up to date.

Once this guy that I used to work with came over, installed the driver, setup eth1 and had ipmasq'ing running in like 2 minutes. He did it so quickly that I couldn't keep track of what he did but this was on Slackware 7.0 running on kernel 2.2.13. I don't know why I wouldn't be able to set this up on kernel 2.2.19 or 2.4.5 or what else I need to do to get this to work.

I've searched some previous posts here but they all seem to suggest getting a different card, but this card was working on 2.2.13 so I know that I'm just doing something wrong. If anyone has gone through this and found a resolution I would be soooooo grateful for any info. lemme know if there is anymore info that I can provide.

sorry for the long post.

thx alot in advance

ok, I think that I found the right tulip driver and the kernel seems to like everything on boot, dmesg | tail shows:

via-rhine.c:v1.08b-LK1.1.8 4/17/2000 Written by Donald Becker
http://www.scyld.com/network/via-rhine.html
PCI: Found IRQ 11 for device 00:0f.0
eth0: VIA VT3043 Rhine at 0xe800, 00:50:ba:04:37:83, IRQ 11.
eth0: MII PHY found at address 8, status 0x782d advertising 05e1 Link 0000.
Linux Tulip driver version 0.9.15-pre2 (May 16, 2001)
PCI: Found IRQ 5 for device 00:0b.0
eth1: ADMtek Comet rev 17 at 0xe400, 00:03:6D:10:E9:F2, IRQ 5.

but what I was wondering now is how do I make these changes stick so that when I do an ifconfig, I get eth1 also. As it is now, when I do ifconfig I only get lo and eth0.

I have tried putting:

alias eth0 via-rhine
alias eth1 tulip

into my modules.conf file and I also have:

append = "ether=0,0,eth1"

at the beginning of the lilo.conf file (even though I've read that this is for built in drivers and I've compiled the kernel for these drivers to load as modules, it was a big mess the other way) but still no luck. I can do an ifconfig eth1 up but then if I try to netconfig eth1, it will still only configure eth0. Does anyone know how to configure so that eth1 is present upon boot and how I can configure that card once it's present?

still using slackware, still using kernel 2.4.5

thx alot in advance

You will need to edit /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 and add the ifconfig lines to assign that interface and IP address at boot time. That should sort you out.

hells yeah, that totally sorted my *** out, you kids are really on this ****

before I reinstalled I saved my entire /etc direcory from 2.2.13 Slack 7 and when I looked at rc.inet1 and there was no info anywhere on the second NIC but I found out that my friend had put

ifconfig eth1 <ipaddy> <netmask>
etc....

on rc.local instead so I was totally confused.

ok, so no matter where I put it, it werks, coolio, then I proceeded to tell the script to look at rc.firewall and grab my old rc.firewall script and chmod 700 rc.firewall but now when I start up, I see:

modprobe: Can't locate moduel ip_masq_raudio
ipchains: setting MASQ timouts failed: protocol not available
ipchains: Protocol not available
ipchains: Protocol not available

so I look at my poor kernel that's probably so sick of being recompiled and under:

Networking Options
IP: Netfilter Configuration
ipchains (2.2-style) support
ipfwadm (2.0-style) support

are loaded as modules and also

IP tables support

which I hear kernel 2.4.x now uses.

I guess I will try to figure out how to use iptables if that's what I should be using for kernel 2.4.5 but I wonder why ipchains wouldn't work if it's set to load as module in my kernel.

thx again jharris and aussie, you folks have saved me lots of frustration and hair loss in the past.

There is some bedside reading about iptables here.

thx, great site Aussie, I read everything that applied to me but now I'm getting:

iptables v1.2.3: can't initialize iptables table `filter': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

when I boot or try iptables -L

I've comiled kernel 2.4.9 according to this site: http://www.skyfree.org/linux/netfilter.html

and everything went ok woth the make install of iptables 1.2.3 but here it is 3:25am and cannot figure out why I'm now getting this error. Have any of you seen this before?

thx alot in advance.
