Fixed: eth1 won't start "device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying ..."


I have a Redhat 9 (?) box with an e1000 and a dlink Ethernet card. The e1000 starts fine. No matter what I do I can't get the dlink to start. I have similar ifcfg files for both cards.

listings of the ifcfg files and results of unamne, lsmod, dmesg, lspci and a restart below.

# uname -a
Linux <machine name deleted> 2.6.18-53.1.4.el5 #1 SMP Wed Nov 14 10:37:33 EST 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

#/sbin/ifup eth1
8139too device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.

#/sbin/lsmod |grep mii
mii 9409 2 e100,8139too

# dmesg |grep 8139
8139too Fast Ethernet driver 0.9.27
eth0: RealTek RTL8139 at 0xf0836000, 00:40:05:00:ab:aa, IRQ 185
eth0: Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8100B/8139D'

whereas

# dmesg |grep e100

One somewhat suspicious thing is that

find /lib/modules -name 8139too

gets nothing while

# find /lib/modules -name 8139too*
/lib/modules/2.6.18-53.el5/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.18-53.1.4.el5/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.ko

but

[root@tictac ]# find /lib/modules -name e1000
/lib/modules/2.6.18-53.el5/kernel/drivers/net/e1000
/lib/modules/2.6.18-53.1.4.el5/kernel/drivers/net/e1000

but I suppose that

# find /lib/modules -name e100*
/lib/modules/2.6.18-53.el5/kernel/drivers/net/e1000e
/lib/modules/2.6.18-53.el5/kernel/drivers/net/e1000e/e1000e.ko

and

# /etc/init.d/network restart
