switch from eth0 to tr0


i think my card is recognized by linux.
here it show when i type ifconfig -a :
lo link encap:local loopback
inetaddr:127.0.0.1 mask:255.0.0.0
up loopback running mtu:16436 metric:1
rx packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
tx packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
coallisions:0 txqueuelen:0
rx byytes:0 (0.0 b) tx bytes:0 (0.0 b)
tr0 link encap 16/4 mbps token ring (new) hwaddr 08:00:5A:B9B:31
broadcast multicast mtu:2000 metric:1
rx packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
tx packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
coallisions:0 txqueuelen:0
rx byytes:0 (0.0 b) tx bytes:0 (0.0 b)
interrupt:11 base address:0xdc00

when booting i found these line
pci : found irq 11 for device 00:0d.0
irq routing conflict for 00:07.5, have irq 9, want irq 11
lanstreamer.c v0.4.0 03/08/01 - mike sullivan
tr0 : ibm tr auto lanstreamer. i/o at dc00, mm10 at d99d4000, using irq 11
tr0 : ringspeed autosense mode on

and these line, i think this is the problem :
configuring eth0 :
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.33 broadcast 192.168.1.255 netmask 255.255.255.0
siocsifaddr : no such device
eth0 : unknown interface : no such device
siocsifbrdaddr : no such device
eth0 : unknown interface : no such device
siocsifnetmask : no such device
siocaddrt : network is unreachable

i think it still trying loading ip for ethernet. how can i tell to load ip for my token ring ?
i tried to type :
ifconfig tr0 down
ifconfig tr0 ip=192.168.1.33 netmask=255.255.255.0
ifconfig tr0 up

but it show error.

ifconfig tr0 ip=192.168.1.33 netmask=255.255.255.0
Try
ifconfig tr0 192.168.1.33 netmask 255.255.255.0
no ifconfig tr0 up

Cheers,
Tink

P.S.: I loved my TR back in the days :}

P.P.S.: In Slack, just run netconfig, then
edit the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 script and change
the occurences of eth0 to tr0.
