When I did sys-unconfig, the system tried to detect my NIC as "rtls0", which is incorrect. Everytime I reconfigure the DLink NIC manually, the system always referred it as "rf1". Why the system can't recognize "rf1" but tried to use "rtls0" instead?
I've been thinking.... at the step where the Configuration Assistant read my floppy where the driver for the DLink NIC resides, does the system copied the driver to the harddrive or only read it from the floppy?
Is there any way to copy the driver to the harddrive manually and let Solaris read it when booting?
I experienced a similiar issue with an .itu .. TBH I never did find out how to make .itu permanent. But here is an alternate solution
Fire up you're editor; open /boot/solaris/devicedb/master; go down to the following entry:
pci10ec,8139 pci10ec,8139 net pci none "Realtek 8139 Fast Ethernet"
Copy that line directly below itself, changing the pci10ec,8139
portion to this :
Don't put that editor away yet ...Next edit /etc/driver_aliases
Then proceed with your reconfigure.
Note: You will see a note that the driver does not support ...etc. @ boot. It does, I haven't figured out why that message occurs, but rest assured, the card will work.
