Unhappy Gigabyte Motherboard

Hey everyone,

I recently purchased a new computer which has a GA-8IPE1000-PRO-V2.0 Gigabyte motherboard which has an inbuilt NIC

I am in the process of learning how to use Linux...

I have Red Hat 8.0 installed on it and everything works fine.. except the network card didnt seem to be installed and configured in the installation..

Would it not pick it up because it is a newer motherboard and an 'older' version of Red Hat

I really have no idea what to do to get it working..

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

your mobo has an intel pro/1000 lan motherboard which i know is supported in linux 2.6 kernel however your kernel verison is 2.4 i dont know if it is supported in 2.4 but it is a safe bet it is
it is possible that your drivers have loaded but your device is not yet configured the best thing could be if you post back the results of these commands

as follows type




lsmod will show what device modules are loaded (hardware support) and ifconfig will show details about your ethenet device and how it is configured

it doesnt appear that your device has had it modules loaded you could try doing " ifconfig eth0 up " to make sure this cmd will turn on your network device if it is detected eth0 is what linux would call your first network device if the modules arnt loaded then it will say somthing like device not found.

if that is the case then you must type " lspci " as root this will give a read out of all your pci devices on your motherboard you can post the results back here you also could try googling the results to find maybe someone else who is posting with the same problem you may find your answer sooner.

congratulations on being persistant get back soon and let me know how it goes and the leave the results of lspci

P.S i just did a little googling my self

google linux

intel drivers

cheers oobe
