Intel D915GAV onboard ethernet not working in slackware 12
 
i just finished fresh install of slackware 12 and to my utter horror onboard ethernet and audio not working. lspci shows all devices perfectly. but network settings doesn't show my onboard ethernet card. much confused how to make it work as i'm new to slackware, but had all these things working on fedora 7.

About the audio
 
Have you ran alsaconf alsamixer and alsactl store as root yet? I had to do this to get sound with my Intel audio card.

What do you get when you run ifconfig as root?

gopi.d 07-22-2007 05:08 AM

Tried Alsaconf and sound is on but onboard ethernet is not working
ifconfig shows the staticip given by me during installation and loopback adapter. but my broadcom router works on plugging into usb, gets detected in a while and is connected as etho. tried modprobe ee100 but getting error module ee100 not found.

gopi.d 07-28-2007 08:59 AM

Atlast modprobe e100 did the magic and my onboard ethernet intel Pro 100 VE shows up in network manager but unable to bring it up. while activating it gives a error msg unable to activate device try activating manually. i don't know how to activate manually and while restarting every time i have to modprobe to enable the device, how to enable this device permanently.

read up on 'man ifconfig' and 'man route', basically it's "ifconfig 'interface name' 'ip' netmask 'netmask' up" and then "route add default gateway 'gateway'"

you could add modprobe e100 to rc.modules, and set up networking with netconfig (I think)

tried man ifconfig but could not enable the ethernet card it comesup for a second and again goes away. but had setup the broadcom usb router to work but unable to browse internet.

1) what is the output when you run ifconfig? Does it show your network card?
2) if it shows the network card, try putting "modprobe e100" in rc.modules and use netconfig.

rc.modules will load the driver for your network card at boot time,
and netconfig will setup the ip and everything.

Did you switch from huge-2.6.21.5-smp to generic-2.6.21.5-smp kernel?

no i did not switch to generic kernel i'm still using huge2.6.21.5-smp which is the default kernel for slack 12.

Hi,

So your router is connected to eth0 which is a usb mounted device. If your usb router is connect via the usb on your machine then what is the output of 'route -n'.

I would setup the router/modem independent of the system if possible. Then connect via the eth device. What model broadcom usb router?

actually it is a Beetel 220BX ADSL 2+ modem with usb and ethernet interface with broadcom chip.
the problem in the router is the connection dies out in an hour when connected in usb.

has anybody found a way to make intel pro 100ve onboard ethernet to work on slack12

randomsel 09-04-2007 08:17 AM

so after modprobe e100 you've got the interface, but need to bring it up:
Code:

ifconfig eth1 <ip> netmask <netmask> up
route add default gateway <gateway IP>

for static IP, or
Code:

dhcpcd eth1
for dhcp.
That should work in most cases, post again if it doesn't

Big thanks to all who posted help in this thread. No ethernet devices showing after putting Slackware 12 (default kernel) on an HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop which has an Intel Pro/100 VE (wired) NIC. I ran modprobe e100 and there's eth0 showing up under ifconfig. A small modification to rc.modules (as suggested in this thread) and eth0 is now loaded automatically at boot (and working fine as well). :D

Now it's time to figure out how to get the Intel Pro/Wireless 3945ABG wifi adapter recognized and running. :study:
