Question Module ds not found

hi boys and girls - peace tux,

well -- it is my first post here @t, trying to to it correct

Laptop (gericom Hydra speed AMD500)
arch: 500MHz AMD K6/3
Distri: gentoo1.4

I'm trying to compile the gentoo-2.6.2 kernel (actuel portage), but i cannot get my network card get to work
When the System comes up i can see an error message which says:
FATAL: Module ds not found

So, I rebooted with my stable kernel 2.4 to see the modules by using lsmod.
... found that my stable kernel2.4 loads a module call ds which my 2.6 doesn´t.
I searched in the kerneloptions (make xconfig) for a option to like ds, couldn't find it.

I also searched the www and groups, couldn't find any hint WHAT the ds.o is called in xconfig, menuconfig or in the .config it self.

The sintoms are that my card is up, using ifconfig to check it.
the card also got power
but if i try to ping any machine in my net IT LOOKs like some think is wrong with the cable.
a ping to localhost (or to the host itself) works.

... I recompiled the kernel with pcmcia modular - like in the gentoo forum dicribed and i don't get this error message anymore -BUT....

My mainprobem is still the same --- My pcmcia network card is up, seeing it by ifconfig -- but i cannot ping any machine in my network - but the laptop itself.

PS: i set no iptables rule jet -- so forget about it

Thank you for helping me

Hey LooOOooM
I recompiled the kernel with pcmcia modular - like in the gentoo forum dicribed and i don't get this error message anymore
So ... think about what you said there...
PCMCIA/CardBus support
( => ... To compile this driver as modules, choose M here: the modules will be called pcmcia_core and ds. )
The best you could do 'd be to go through your 2.6 kernel config and check all networking options ... again and again. I bet you forgot an essential thing...

With best regards,
