Question NVidia lan Fedora problem


Hy!

I have installed Fedora, and I have a problem with my onboard lan. I have an EPOX motherboard with a NVidia lan. I try to install the redhat driver from NVidia and it didn't work.

Where do i find some drivers?

many thanks

If you're using a 2.6 kernel, there is a driver included that works with the nforce2 NIC. Try "modprobe forcedeth" as root in terminal.

With the 2.4 kernel, you'll probably need nvidia's drivers. You said the RH driver didn't work, try using the src.rpm. To build do (su to root) "rpmbuild --rebuild filename.src.rpm". In Mandrake, this builds a rpm package in /usr/src/RPM/RPMS/i586/, it's probably similar in Fedora.

The NIC driver is called nvnet. Once the nvidia drivers are installed, do "modprobe nvnet" and set up your LAN as usual

PLEASE! Where are the sources?? I would love to do this! I am using Fedora Core 1. I have used Fedora Core 2, and the nic worked out of the box! But, the kernel under core 1 is 2.4.

HELP!!!

To determine which kernel you are running, just open a terminal session and enter: uname -r

Get the driver here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nforce_1.0-0261.html Definitely read the instructions on how to install it and get the nvnet module loaded. Seriously, read the instructions before you attempt to do anything. Take it from me it will save you a lot of hassle.

Also note that the forcedeth module is built into the 2.6.5 kernel and if that's what you're running, you probably would just need to insmod it. -- J.W.
