internet problems with mandrake 10, eth problems


when i start mandrake 10, while its going through loading everything it says "bringing up interface: eth0 : FAILED" everything else passes though, and i cant access the internet with KDE, i cant even access my routers page through the internet browser. in the config menus i put LAN as my access, ive tried cable also. i put it all on auto like the DHCP, ip and gateway. i checked these option and they are all right, my ip, the router's ip as the gateway, but it cant get a hostname or get online, any help? eth0 is built into my mother board. gigabyte GA-7VT600-L

what is the output of lsmod? lspci? Perhaps the module didn't load correctly. What version of 10 is it? Community edition? Or RC1 or earlier?

Sorry. The font in the forum looks like an i, but I typed a lower case "L". You open a terminal window and become root (type "su" and put in your root password when prompted). type LSMOD (in lower case) and that will tell you what modules (linux equivalent term for drivers) are loaded. If your ethernet adaptor isn't listed there, we start with that. LSPCI (in lower case) will tell you what controller cards you have (vid, ethernet, pci bridge, etc). Good to know what the system thinks your eternet model# is.

I'm thinking that your ethernet is probably already supported. You've got kernel 2.6 under the hood if you're running Mandy 10 (that's why its zippier). Try to insert the module manually. modprobe <modulename_without_.so_at_the_end:-)> What does lspci call your ethernet adaptor? is it rtl8139? Or another model?

k. you can fix from terminal, BTW.

Code:

Is it KDE, you can't get into? Or, is it all of "X"? Can you get to the login prompt?

Try logging in as root (from a console, obviously) and deleting the username you have.
Code:
userdel <username>
and making up another for now. That way you can probably get back into it. If you have files you care about in the user folder (under /home) then you can try to retrieve them as root later when you know what you have done (or forget about deleting the user and just create another)
