loading tulip module on 2.6.3


rolled up a new kernel and added tulip family support in the .config and it compiled fine. When I boot, it gets to the end and says "unable to load module tulip, not found" I might need to change a line somewhere else, but it is working on 2.4.25 great.
If it matters
Arch 0.6
Netgear FA310fx/tulip driver

Thanks for a tip

Did you build tulip as a module, then? And did you install the modules using make modules_install?

I think it was built in the kernel. I selected "*" on the tulip line, not "M". I did the make module and make module_install. (already fixed that mistake )

If your network connection works with the driver built-in you can safely ignore the error message, or go on a hunt for where the modules to be loaded at boot are specified. The documentation for your distribution should provide this information.

For reference, both Debian and Gentoo have a simple text file with a list of modules to load; in Debian it is called /etc/modules and in Gentoo it is /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-<version>.

ok, got that figured out

Using Arch so the key files were modules.conf, modprobe.conf and rc.conf

took the line "alias eth0 tulip" out of modprobe for 2.6.3
added the same line into module for 2.4.25
commented out !tulip in rc.conf

now the DSL won't start on 2.6.3, but still works fine on 2.4.25

Computers--gotta love them or we would all go nuts
