e1000 redhat and kernel 2.6.9


ok. I just got my 2.6.9 kernel going. I built in intel pro/1000 drivers but my card doesn't work. When I try to add it I don't see it in the list. I downloaded e1000 drivers from intel, make install, insmod e1000.ko, no errors, but it does not work. ideas? On boot detect new hardware doesn't see my card. Ideas? How can I manually add a card?

Thanks in advance

Does it show the module with an lsmod output?

Try to modprobe it or insmod it.

well I removed eth0, then ran kudzu -p and AMD pcnet32 ethernet card was detected. I have an integrated Intel Pro/1000. Any ideas why? I would submit to bugzilla, but...

Its just not recognizing the chipset correctly. Try to remove the module and add it back with modprobe. Did it say it was even being used? You may have to alias your eth with it in your modules.conf file at startup so it knows to use that module instead of any others it thinks is different.

This may sound crazy, but I just spent 3 days trying to get my Intel Gigabit NIC to work after upgrading the kernel and nothing seemed to work. Then, in the BIOS, I changed the Parallel Port mode setting from "bi-direction" to "ECP" and now it works. I have found that changing this setting will enable or disable eth0 during boot and not allow it to be activated after I've booted.
Let me know if this helps. I'd like to think it's not just my machine.

wow thanks for replying. I have figured out what my problem was.....Me. I am a total dope. I am running linux within vmware and while I have a e1000 gigabit adapter in my machine, my virtual machine "runs" an AMD pcnet32. Anyway, thanks for checking. Not sure what the deal is with your setup. Can't help more than pointing you to google. then again, if it aint broke....
