Ok, now check /etc/modules.conf and see if it's listed in there..


you can use any text editer when on the linux desktop, if your in console you can use vi /etc/modules.conf to view the file... if your in VI and need to get out of it a simple " [esc] :q" will get you out.


Here is the line from my /etc/modules.conf that shows the module for my nic card to be loaded.

alias eth0 tulip

should be something that says alias eth0 (driver name here)

If you see nothing with "alias eth0" then you need to get a module setup for your nic card.

Basically all that needs to happen is you insert the module needed by your nic into the kernel.
Sounds easy, and sometimes can be, but not always.

gimmie a sec to research your card..

ok, from what I've seen your nic uses the same chip mine does... the tulip driver should work.

change your modules.conf where it says alias eth0 off to alias eth0 tulip

save it and reboot it... lemme know what happens


*note* I've never used Suse so I'm assuming it's works basically like every other linux distro out there.

lol... no worries m8

First do a insmod tulip to see if it will even load the module.

if that works...

go into console and follow these commands...

1. vi /etc/modules.conf

2. [insert]

arrow down to the alias eth0 off line

arrow over to off and

3. [delete]

to get rid of the "off"

4. type in "tulip"

so it should say (without the quotes) "alias eth0 tulip"

5. [esc] :wq

then your done. the [esc] gets you out of insert mode and the :wq does a write and quit

*note* the words in straight brackets [] are buttons ... don't type that in the file

you also might want to download and try nano for editing files in console mode, it's pretty cool.

in your console type in "/sbin/ifconfig"

it should spit out something similar to this...

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:A0:CC:63:F6:95
inet addr:192.168.1.111 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1

TX packets:55708 errors:1 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:1

RX bytes:239357663 (228.2 Mb) TX bytes:12390824 (11.8 Mb)
Interrupt:11 Base address:0xdc00

lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
RX packets:1700 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

RX bytes:158676 (154.9 Kb) TX bytes:158676 (154.9 Kb)


If all you get is lo and no eth0 then we may need to attack this from a different angle.
