RealTek 8139 not being detected in FC4


Hello friends,

I am stuck up.

The realtek 8139 is not being detected by my FC4 box.

I manually add it and I try to initialise it and what i get is :

Quote:
8139too device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.
What could be the problem ?

I understand, the hardware is automatically detected. The same is not happening !

Any help friends ?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks brothers,

The relvant extract of "lspci -v" is as below:

That above shows that at least the cards are plugged in.
Now, why are not they being recognised. I believe they should be automatically recognised as to the make and chipset etc!
How can I know that atuodetect is working ?

The etho is already bound to the onboard ethernet, and is already under use.

Thanks for everything, friends.

Waiting for further directions.

Prabhat Soni
