Kernel 2.4.22 finds eth0 and eth1 but 2.6.0 does not find eth1
 
Hello,

I got this sticky problem, that after surfing these forums for a few days have come up dry, so i come to the community for help:)

Alright, Under the 2.4.22 Kernel i do a ifconfig -a and it tells me there is an eth0 and an eth1 , however, under the new 2.6.0 kernel which i compiled it does not show eth1, wich is the ethernet port when i have my Dell Inspiron 5000 pluged into the port replicator.
I am pretty much new to Linux, but eger to learn so Thanks in advance for any help:)


Thanks,

Coollink

Go back into menuconfig and make sure you enable support for both nic's into the kernel. What does 'ifconfig -a' show, if it shows both devices then you may just need to add them to your /etc/rc.conf file.

The Kernel 2.4.22 works just fine...but the 2.6 does not however. One thing i noticed today during the 2.6 boot is says something about Intel PCIC module not found...but im not sure if that is the exact clause. Is there any way i can get a dump of the boot up to post that here?

Another thing to note is that the only way i have an ethernet card is threw my port replicator. the laptop itself does not have one. I dont know if this is of any importance but i just thought i'd post it. Also, the card under windows is intel 8255x Based PCI
