How to detect network card from the console?


I have an unsolved problem with my network card which means that network services fail to start up on boot. However, going into YaST and detecting the network card gets it going without problem.

Until I can solve this properly, does anyone know what process YaST is executing when it is detecting the network card?

Ideas appreciated.

Rollo


PS. The original problem is at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=376408 in case anyone can help.

just load the module, and if a device responds to it, it's there, e.g. "modprobe 8139too" to load a driver for a realtek 8139 card.

Thumbs up Worked

Thank acid for the tip. It worked of course.

Why isn't there an automatised way of thanking people for help without blocking up the forum listing like this? Threads should also be closable. Seems to me that LinuxQuestions is behind in these respects.

not that this is really the best place for discussing things like this but

1) thanks? i don't really need any personally.
2) there was a way to "close" in some respects, but 99% of people didn't use it, and there's just no benefit
