hey. was wonderin if anyone here had this problem :
when i first install my system (debian stable, which installs the 2.2 kernel), everything is fine, and i can connect. but when i try to compile a new kernel (the 2.4)......
the dmesg on booting the old kernel gives me:
sis900.c: v1.06.09 09/28/2001
eth0: SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet at 0xcc00, IRQ 5, xxx.
eth0: Unknown PHY transceiver found at address 0.
eth0: Unknown PHY transceiver found at address 1.
eth0: Unknown PHY transceiver found at address 31.
eth0: Using transceiver found at address 31 as default.
ok, i found the same problem online, and someone elses post on it.
so, i did what he has written there, n i get what i have posted below, and it doesnt work yet. i have definitely missed somethng here.
the dmesg on the newly compiled 2.4 kernel gives me:
sis900.c: v1.08.06 9/24/2002
PCI: Found IRQ 5 for device 00:04.0
PHY 1, status 782D
eth0: RealTek RTL8201 PHY transceiver found at address 1.
eth0: Using transceiver found at address 1 as default.
