how etho related with modules.conf file


Hi,

Mara mam.....

It is like scenario.... but not a problem...it is just doubt.......
"How Eth0 is related with modules.conf" ..... I got this doubt.... because...

Regarding sound drivers i installed ALSA drivers... but not able to success to get sound from my system that is another matter... that's why i checked and done some modifications in etc/modules.conf file... related to OSS drivers i made some modifications....(i put them in a comments ) but I didn't edit any ALSA drivers configuration.... after these changes when i reboot the system then i am not able to connect to Internet..... then from terminal i typed ifconfig... i got the information of lo(loop back Address) but not eth0 address.... why ..then immediatly i changed back as it is before in etc\modules.conf file........ Now Everything alright .


any suggestion or help would ne appreciate.

Thanx in advance..

zameer ahmed syed

Now My Question : How this modules.conf file is related with Eth0 ....... still i am in confused.

Quite depends on the distro and the way it's setting
itself up ... my eepro100 get's loaded independent of
modules.conf in slack 10 ...

On my router at home I make explicit selections as
to which card handles which interface in modules.conf
Code:
alias eth0 8139too
alias eth1 3c59x

Cheers,
Tink

Hard to say without seing the actual file ...
Maybe there's some invisible character
stuck in there somewhere before the eth0
line.... try moving it to the top of the file.


Cheers,
Tink
