I'm going to try to give as much information as possible for this.. please... please try your best for an answer, I'm stumped and I've been playing with it slowly progressing for a long time....
I have a Encore Ethernet card, it is running off of the sis900 module. It successfully loads. It shows up in ifconfig after i type
WITHOUT a ipaddr or any of that. That entire line is out. HOWEVER, in KDE Information Center, the only network interface shown is the loopback.
If I execute
then it tells me No bbroadcast interfaces found - exiting
tells me eth0: not found
does something, but I'm not sure what.. it just sits there and then finishes a minute later with no output, with or without eth0 in the parameters.
Everything else: DHCP
I use kernel: 2.4.22
Distribution is: Slackware
I'll be on for a bit, so I'll reply as quick as possible.
