help with /sbin/modprobe tulip


I have a Linksys NIC and it worked but when I recompiled my kernel I lost is somehow. When I type /sbin/modprobe tulip this is what I get
Code:
/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers net/tulip.o: unresolved symbol _mmx_memcpy
lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers net/tulip.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/driver/net/tulip.o failed
lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers net/tulip.o: insmod tulip failed
I was hoping that someone could make sense of this. I have network cards and 10/100 compiled into the kernel.

You need to specifically compile your kernel with the tulip driver. Network cards and 10/100 won't cut it. I think its usually specified under the DEC chipset type.

trickykid,
Thanks for the info. So I would /usr/src/linux make menuconfig then goto the Network device option and then the 10 100 and the DEC chipset will be here? I looked for something called tulip but did not see it.

Its under:

Network Device Support > Ethernet ( 10 or 100Mbit ) > DECchip Tulip ( dc21x4x ) PCI support
