Problems configuring RTL-8169 NIC
I've been having trouble configuring my NIC under Suse 9.1
I apologize in advance for being unable to cut and past but I am typing from a seperate computer.
Anyway, when I run: ifup eth0 I get:
eth0 device: Realtek Semi... RTL-8169 (rev 10)
eth0 configuration: eth-id-00:0a:e4:5e:b3:e6
SCIOCSIFFLAGS: Function not implemented
Starting DHCP ... on eth0... . . . . no IP address yet... backgrounding
ifconfig eth0 up gives me:
SCIOCSIFFLAGS: Funtion not implemented
I've looked at some other FAQs and some other threads on this site that have similar problems, but as far as I can tell the IRQ is not in use by something else and I have the correct driver module in place. Any ideas at this point would be great. and as a side not, I am somewhat new to Linux but I have a decent understanding of hardware and software theories.
