can't load ethernet modules manually


Hello,

Please refer my post ' network device down '

I am trying to load ethernet driver modules
manually.

My MB is intel 945.

Network connection suddenly just disappeared.

My cards are onboard and 2 nos giga ethernet cards.

Modules are e100 and sk98lin respectedly.

I get the following errors :

# modprobe sk98lin
FATAL: Module sk98lin not found

# modprobe e100
FATAL: Module e100 not found

The cards are there and working and so are
the modules

Anybody can help me out.

Thanks in advance

Varun

whats the output of the following commands:
Code:
find /lib/modules/`uname -r` -name sk98lin*
uname -a
grep -i e100 /usr/src/`uname -r`/.config
grep -i sk98lin /usr/src/`uname -r`/.config

Here are my results :


# find /lib/modules/`uname -r` -name sk98lin*
lib/modules/2.6.12-12mdksmp/kernel/drivers/netsk98lin
lib/modules/2.6.12-12mdksmp/kernel/drivers/netsk98lin/sk98lin.ko.gz

# uname -a
linux fileserver 2.6.122-mdksmp #1 smp friday 9 ....


# grep -i e100 /usr/src/linux-2.6.14.3/.config
CONFIG_E100=m
CONFIG_E1000=m
#CONFIG_E1000 is not set


# grep -i sk98lin /usr/src/linux-2.6.14.3/.config
CONFIG_SK98LIN=m

I have again checked with knoppix all cards are
working.

Actually I have noticed that a lot of other modules
are also not being loaded. Examples sound is also down.

It's quite possible that there are modules from another manufacturers card that will work for yours.

You may need to check that your kernel has them, and they are set (m) as modules.

I've found that the intel and realtek modules work for quite a few cards.

Do you see the cards found in the list as the kernel is loading?

(edit) forget what I wrote.

i too use the sk98lin module for my network card and has never caused me problems.

you said everything was working fine then stopped correct? im sure youve thought about it, but can you let us know what you have installed/uninstalled (hardware or software) or what files edited/deleted recently just prior to your system acting up?

How to check all that ?
