Step by step guide to install onboard NIC


Hi everyone,

I am running Debian / testing on an ASUS A7V600 mobo with an onboard nic (3com / 3c940) which I could not get running. My workaround for now is to disable the onboard nic and use an old 3com 3c905. I already downloaded the 3com driver from the asus website but could not get it installed. make load returns me this error message:

insmod 3c2000.o
3c2000.o: unresolved symbol _mmx_memcpy
3c2000.o: unresolved symbol create_proc_entry_Rdb0bd2bc
3c2000.o: unresolved symbol eth_type_trans_Ra7b962e6
3c2000.o: unresolved symbol alloc_skb_R1afdff72

3c2000.o: unresolved symbol unregister_netdev_Rb4a7e4d6
3c2000.o: unresolved symbol softnet_data_R2bbe92a0

Can anybody give me a hint what's wrong?

Try modprobe 3c2000
Modprobe installs the module specified with all its dependencies (usually a NIC module needs other network modules to work). Insmod installs only the mdoul specified, without dependencies.

modprobe 3c2000 returns: modprobe: Can't locate module 3c2000

What does that mean?

I would think that I could load the "driver"/module with modconf but I cannot chose 3c2000 as a network module

are you running modprobe from the directory of the module? if not try modprobe /path/to/the/module.

In fact, you should copy your module to the moduels dir /lib/modules/kernelversion/kernel/drivers/net
and tehn run depmod -a to update dependencies. When it finishes, modprobe 3c2000 should work.
