Network Card not detected after installing OpenSuse 11.0 32 bit


I am a Linux Newbie. I have installed OpenSuse 11 32 bit on my system. After installation Linux did not detect my Network Card. When I run Network Information my network device is displayed as Loopback Interface (lo). When I select Ethercard eth0 from the dropdown I cannot save this settings.

How can I set my Ethernet card?

Please help me.

You need dmfe module. Search the web for it. I havent used the card but some googling shows that it is supported on linux.

Look out if your card is listed there.

After searching in Google I came up with this help

"This is a common problem with the Davicom Tulip Ethernet Card. In Suse [and some other OS's] it comes with the tulip driver and the dmfe driver. For some reason Suse downloads the tulip driver by default which doesn't work so you need to change to the dmfe driver. Try [as root]:

# rmmod tulip
# rmmod dmfe
# modprobe dmfe"

I tried this and it worked. My Internet started but when I restarted my system I could not connect to Internet. So I had to repeat the same steps.

How can I make this solution work automatically!

To run commands at boot you can edit /etc/rc.local file and add the commands that you want to execute at boot.
