[OpenSUSE 10.3] booting network driver manually after each reboot


After a reboot of the server my network driver disappeared. Now every time I reboot the box, I cannot see eth0 (ifconfig -a). I have to load the network driver manually (insmod /lib/modules/2.6.22.5-31-default/kernel/drivers/net/tg3.ko) to be able to see eth0.

I haven't made any changes to the system.

Is there any way I can automate this so I don't have to load the network driver manually?

/etc/modprobe.conf file

I have compared the above with another "good" OpenSUSE 10.3 and they are all the same.

I have also booted off a Knoppix Live CD and I can see two ethernet interface fine.

Thanks for any help.

booting network driver manually

this is what i used to do with my ndiswrapper driver that i had to manually load each time i booted.
login as root and go to /etc/sysconfig.
then open the file kernel with a text editor like gedit and kwrite
or open the terminal in supermode or enter su to be root
then enter gedit /etc/sysconfig/kernel
on the section of MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT=""
type in the name of the module that you want loaded at boot time.
then save the file and reboot to see if it is automatically loaded
have a good day.

Solved by adding "insmod /lib/modules/2.6.22.5-31-default/kernel/drivers/net/tg3.ko" to the /etc/init.d/network file

Tried to add "tg3" and "tg3.ko" to /etc/sysconfig/kernel file for the MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT="" to no avail.

Wonder why!
