Glad you are up and running and I'm especially glad that my set of "basic" instructions is being so helpful to everyone. If we all help each other we can make Linux do what we need it to do so we can use it every day.

Power to the Penguin!

quick 'n easy

I've downloaded the nforce2 tar archive to compile it for my mdk 9.2,but it tells me an error :
for every file invkoed in nvnet.c and nvnet.h, it says :
warning : this is the location of the previous definition

No idea what can it be ! And I've done everything that was said since the first post (although so helpfull !)

Can anyone using mdk 9.2 with kernel 2.4.22-10mdk send me his nvnet.o module ( ?
thanks in advance !

Well I don't think you will have problems with it after an upgrade.
and if you have. it is not a problem anymore since you know the solution

Question Nforce 2 MB Ethernet and Mandrake 10

Does anyone know if Mandrake 10 installs the ethernet drivers correctly on an NForce 2 Motherboard?
I tried the "move" 1 cd install of version 10, and that did not install an ethernet driver. But...I have never had any luck, with any of the one cd versions, setting up ethernet correctly.

Probably not since nvidia even provides wrong drivers on there installation cd
but you can have it up and running in less than 10 if you follow these instruction. from this how to
but take your kernelsources that's all

Great article, guys, but....

I admit, I haven't tried out your ideas (I'm not at the computer with the nvidia net card), but, I tried installing the drivers and... everything appeared to be fine!

I installed them from .tar.gz (make && make install). There was only a small warning, but everything was ok. I modified /etc/modules.conf and added the aliases. When I rebooted it said 'Unresolved dependencies in /..../nvnet.o'...

I did a 'make uninstall' and I installed them from .src.rpm, and again, there was no error message, but when I rebooted linux, it would say there are unresolved dependencies.

I didn't do anything to my kernel sources (just installed them)... I'll try to do what you suggested... Do I have to recompile the kernel? Or will the original kernel work?

Also, I didn't do a depmod -a, because the install procedure would do it (with both .tar.gz and .src.rpm). I'll try doing a depmod and see what happeneds.

Did any of you get this error message?

PS. I'm using a standard Mandrake 9.2 freshly installed.

Thanks a lot

No you do not have to recompile the kernel

You just need the sources to make the correct driver

Just another big thank you from a Linux newbie. I had played with linux a few years ago when Mandrake 7.2 was distributed with a PC magazine and now I've got and oversized HD I decided to go down the dual boot route again.

Thanks to this thread I have succesfully installed my ethernet adapter and can connect to the internet. I did have to reboot a few times in order to find out what to do when the "rpm --rebuild" command didn't find the correct folder but installing all rpm related programs from the cd worked a treat.

Thanks thanks thanks. That goes to all who have had an input to this thread.
