I booted an OS from live disk. The OS boots successfully but eth0 fails to start. I checked lspci , it outputs the exact ethernet card details :
(Broadcom Netextreme II BCM5716 Gigabyte ethernet)
Ifconfig -a returns only loop back interface lo and sit0. The output of dmesg | grep -i 'eth' is :
"Netfront : initializing network ethernet driver"
When i run 'service network restart' I get :
"Obtaining IP for lo [FAILED]
WARNING: Deprecated config gile /etc/modprobe.conf , all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/
Device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization [FAILED]"
the output of MII-tool -v is :
No MII interface found.
I was also able to find the kernel module bnx2.ko. I did insmod and lsmod lists it. I am not sure what exactly is the issue or how to debug this problem. Any assistance or pointer will be helpful. Thanks for your time.
