modprobe hp100 "device not found"
I am trying different distributions on an old AT machine. My hp100 card was successfully found on Red Hat 6.0 with autoprobing:
# modprobe hp100 hp100_port=0
In Slackware 9.1 this is the result:
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/net/hp100.o.gz: init_module: no such device
/lib/... : Hint: insmod errors... blah blah blah
... hp100.o.gz: insmod hp100 failed
I tried specifying hp100_port=0x330. I think this is where Red Hat said it was found. Netconfig's card probe said it found a card using sk98lin.o, but lsmod said it is unused. I edited /etc/modules.conf with:
alias eth0 hp100
options eth0 hp100_port=0
and rebooted, with the same result as previous in the bootup message.
Sorry if this sounds dumb, but I thought the modules I modprobed in other distros were .o files. Do I need to gunzip the hp100.o.gz file first, or is this automatic in Slackware?
PS - I edited the alias line in this message. I missed hp100 but it is in my modules.conf.
