Gigabit LAN ethernet adapter not working


I think this is the last 'split' from my initial big post

The problem I have (apart from the others you can read in my last posts) is my Marvell Gigabit-Ethernet LAN adapter is not working, I've tried from building the support for it in the kernel internally and building it as a module, in any of the two ways, there's no problem with module loading or any complaint at boot time, but when I try to find my ethernet device I can't, it isn't there...

No matter how I try, when I execute ip link to show the list of adapters it only shows me the loopback device as lo, but no trace of eth0 or any other 'eth' device...

I also tried net-tools, but the ifconfig output is the same, I only get the lo device in the list...

Do I need something more to get my ethernet device working... like... a userspace driver? if not the case, how can I fix the problem?

Thanks in advance,

Oh, never mind, I downloaded the sk98lin driver from the SysKonnect site and now my ethernet adapter works

Next stop... Wireless LAN
