Disabled, still having problems. I get on the inet every other reboot or so now, but most things are slow and it still shows the IRQ conflict

I'm still thinking the problem is in the BIOS setup. The PNP OS setting shouldn't make any difference unless you have some ISA cards. Look for the menu that has something about PNP/PCI configurations and make sure that it is set to AUTO. The system I am looking at now has an Award BIOS and has a menu for PNP/PCI and a setting for "Resources Controlled by" which is set to AUTO. Setting this to MANUAL allows you to set interrupts. If you don't have ISA PNP cards, this should be set to AUTO. The other thing you might try is enabling the "Reset Configuration Data" option. In Award BIOS this resets the i/o and interrrupt configuration for PCI at boot time.

Are you sure that your video card needs an interrupt? I'm using a Voodoo and it does, but some don't.

Damn... Slow connection, got impatient. Sorry for the double post

In PCI/Plug and Play Setup:

Plug and Play Aware O/S (yes/no, set to no)
AGP Select (1/2/4x, set to 4x)
Primary graphics adapter (PCI/AGP, set to AGP)
Allocate IRQ to PCI VGA (yes/no, set to yes)

I see nothing else similar to what you posted, however.

My graphics card is a TNT2. I don't know if it needs IRQ, but that's what it was originally

If you are using an AGP video, why would you enable PCI interrupt for VGA?

Sure

It's weird...once in a while when I boot up eth0 passes, but it skips the graphical login and everything loads slow. It fails most of the time, though.

On top of that the 'ether' command seems to be doing nothing...hmm...really weird

Hmm...well since my USB controller, sound card, and ethernet card all want IRQ 11 I'll try moving stuff in and out of slots. How do I have linux update the IRQs? Is it automatic?

Hmm...been reading some other things, and it seems that my mobo (ECS K75SA) has been giving a lot of people problems with IRQ 11 and the inability to manually change the IRQs. I'm going to attempt disabling the onboard USB controller and I may take out my soundcard if that doesn't work. Even if it does work, I'm still in a rut, as I will need USB/sound eventually. I'll probably have to buy a new mobo *sigh*


Edit: Took out sound card, nothing is using IRQ 11 now. However, eth0 fails to initialize.

So it seems as if my problem ISN'T related to the conflicting IRQs after all. I can't figure out if I should be happy or not =P

Some new things I've discovered:

ifconfig eth0 up
dhcpcd eth0 up

After performing those commands 'ifconfig' shows what I want it to - my subnet, ip, etc. However, because network doesn't start I can't do much with it (no internet, etc). It's almost as if I can bring up interface eth0 with those commands, but I can't do it with network restart. Is there a workaround? Is there a way to edit what network brings up, and if there was, would it be of any use?

Thanks
