Ethernet controller disabled?
I installed Knoppix 3.7 on a Gericom Supersonic GPRS. There are different problems, but the most important one is this:
The network adapter (which is running well when I work with the Windows XP partition, so it can't be broken) is "disabled". Knoppix infocenter (lspci) gives following report:
Ethernet controller: Accton Technology Corporation EN-1216 Ethernet Adapter (rev 11)
Subsystem: Accton Technology Corporation EN2242 10/100 Ethernet Mini-PCI Card
Flags: medium devsel
I/O ports at <unassigned> [disabled]
Capabilities: [c0] Power Management version 2
What can I do to inable the device? Can ports be controlled and assigned manually? Pleasae give detailed answers. I don't know anything about Linux.
