kernel recompile problem


Just finished a fresh install of Slackware 9.0 yesterday and got it all configured. I downloaded the latest stable kernel source, 2.4.22 and compiled it without error (seemingly). But when I restart and boot the new kernel, I get no network support. I've tried compiling and re-compiling several times with both 2.4.22 and 2.4.21 and I always get one of these two errors upon booting the fresh kernel:

1) If I compile the kernel with ACPI, my card will not initialize itself at all. The module loads fine, but I get an error when I run ifconfig.

2) If I compile without ACPI, the card will initialize itself and ifconfig will bring up the card's status but it still won't work. The card usually assigns to IRQ 11, but after booting the new kernel it comes up on IRQ 16 and just plain doesn't work.

I'm really doubting that it's a problem with my BIOS or with the network card, because I'm using 2.4.20 with it right now and there is no problem whatsoever.

The NIC is a via-rhine integrated on my Abit AT7-MAX2 mobo

umm, HELP?

Ok, I'm getting pretty desperate. Reinstalls, different kernel versions (I've even tried using 2.4.20...what I had in the first place), absolutely nothing works. I've recompiled the 2.4.20 kernel on this machine several times in the past and I've never had this happen before.

wtf

The 2.4.22-ac1 patch contains a fix for ACPI

http://www.kernel.org/diff/diffview....2.4.22-ac1.bz2

Try applying the 2.4.22-ac1 patch to your 2.4.22 kernel source and see if that fixes your problem.

Thanks for the link. I gave up on it earlier today and just threw a NIC into a PCI slot and it's working fine. I'll try messing with the onboard again once my patience is back, safer for my computer that way :P

I doubt it was ACPI though, since I recompiled a few times with no ACPI support at all. Thanks again, though
