Legacy m68mt-s2p Ethernet card not found despite forcedeth

I have the forcedeth drivers installed but it doesn't show up in lsmod and my system still cannot find my ethernet chip on my old server box in Centos 7.3.

I just updated to kernel 3.10.0-693.2.2.el7 x86-64 and that's when this problem came up.

I'm being forced to use an older kernel just to be able to get online.

What debug info do I need to provide in order to figure this out?

Edit: Forcedeth DOES show up in lsmod when I boot into the older kernel. Are there parameters I need to use to "insmod" this driver to make it work?

Edit: users found the solution - didn't have elrepo installed, my forcedeth module was out of date!
