When I first got Slackware I had everything sound and internet. After upgrading to kernel 2.6.0 I have no sound and I cant go on the internet. I enabled ALSA drivers as modules and all the net hardware as modules too. So iam guessing this has to do with the modules. I went to the alsa website and they dont have my sound card but I know its supported since it worked before the kernel compilation. When I type in alsamixer I get .......no such device. I cant remember the exact error.
When I type in ifconfig eth0 I get
"eth0 error fetching interface information:device not found"
So can someone help me with this Iam not really new to Linux but I never had to deal with Loading and Unloading modules are any of these problems Iam experiancing.
I have the same trouble. Making the 2.6.0 kernel correctly is a big problem because you can't simply use the config file from the 2.4.22 kernel. Fortunately dial-up access works even if you make a lot of mistakes Maybe you forgot to enable the pppoe driver.
Distribution: Redhat and clones, Debian,Gentoo, Ubuntu, Mandrake
I had the same problem, and I solved as follow:
Since modules utils now uses /etc/modprobe.conf for the aliases rathern that the old /etc/modules.conf, I added alias etho 8139too
and all the aliases that you can find in the alsa documentation for you specific hardware.
Just switched over to Mandrake 9.2 from XP. Good thing I kept a dual boot. I'm having a time with everything (still waiting for manual). I have a wg311 wireless that isn't eazily supported by linux. downloaded the madwifi driver they say works but it requires compiling then loading Hal, scmall and shallow hal. Unfortunately I don't know how to load a module. fiqured out the compling with "make" but don't know how to load a module. sorry I know it's a week question, but I don't even use dos and batch files anymore using window
