Unhappy Compiled 2.6.9 kernel - Intel PRO/100 VE Network Card won't work


Hello Fellow Linux users,

I recently did a minimal install (no KDE or Gnome yet) of Slackware 10 and I compiled a new kernel from 2.4.26 to 2.6.9 and my Intel PRO 100 VE network card wonít work! And when I try to go to a website in links it will not go to any websites! I tried using netwatch it says no eth0 to work on! I even compiled the Intel Pro/100+ driver and I also compiled PCI, ISA, ON BOARD, etc; network card support into the kernel and unfortunately I still canít get online.

When I had the 2.4.26 kernel it worked great (I downloaded the 2.6.9 kernel with links). I have dhcpd, dhcp, inetd, links, pidented, ppp, and tcpip from the network series installed (basic networking components). Iím trying to switch from windows I been playing with Linux for about 6 months now and so far so good and these forums success stories and help from others inspired me to make the full switch.

(I tried Mandrake, Fedora, Suse, all major distributions) all my hardware worked but every time I install them it always installs too much crap! Even if I trim the fat! That why I am doing a scratch install of Linux (Just incase youíre wondering and I learning a lot so far! I just need that network card working!) That why Iím asking for help from you smart Linux users!

THAK YOU ALL! Help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

*EDIT - I FORGOT TO MENTION THE NETWORK CARD IS INTERGRATED INTO THE CHIPSET*

The intel pro/100 is one of the best cards to run under linux. Did you compile the driver as a module or built into the kernel? If you used menuconfig, it would have said M or *, M meaning module and * meaning built-in.

Try running "modprobe eepro100" and then dhcpcd eth0 (if you get your IP from the router/modem automatically)
If you compiled it as a module, that should get you into business.

I typed "modprobe eepro100" (without quotations) as you said and it says it's not found and I did compile it as a module.

Then let's go poking around manually for what you compiled.

cd /lib/modules/2.6.9/kernel/drivers/net/
and see what's there.
Try modprobing each one (leave off the .ko extension.)

edit: Are you sure you ran make modules and make modules_install when you built the kernel?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
