Module for my 3Com Ethernetcard 3c59x is not in the list


Have just discovered Puppy 4.1.2 after looking for a fast and small linux. Have openSUSE 11.1 on my desktop.Needed Puppy for a rescue on my Thinkpad AP21. Impressed with it and think of discovering the merits of Puppy.
Tried to go on the web via ADSL with Puppy but found out that the wizard did not recognize my ether-netcard and that in the list of modules there is no pci 3Com Cardbus Tornado card. Tried most of the other pci modules but none of them got my card detected. The 3c59x does not seem to correspond with any of the modules. Somebody with a solution?

Could this not be your problem? I. e. to make Puppy fast and small, the module for that particular ethernet card / chip was not compiled in or included?

You'll probably need to compile that module yourself against the Puppy 4.1.2 source tree in order to get your card to work...
