Add alias eth0 rtl8139 to /etc/modules.conf, no change.
There was already an entry alias eth0 8139too which I deleted.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance
ok, try the following to make sure that the adapter is recognised.
from a console prompt type: cat /proc/pci
this should list the pci devices and amongst that list u should c u'r nic. try & deduce ne irq conflicts if u can. if u say it works in w9x then there should be none.
then add the line to /etc/modules.conf if it's not already there and type:
/sbin/modprobe eth0 (loads module)
/sbin/lsmod (lists loaded modules)
if the module is loaded then u need to give it a ip/mask & activate it @ boot. i use redhat 7 and would run netcfg to configure the nic
settings. i am not sure about mandrake.
when u run modprobe & lsmod, u'll get a clearer picture, if the module loads then its the ip etc.. that it needs to activate. if the module does not load then houston we have a problem!
