Question NVIDIA nForce MCP Networking Controller on Redhat 9?


I've just installed Red Hat 9 on my computer.
I've got two problems:

1. My internal network card dosen't being recognized by Red hat. I've got an "NVIDIA nForce MCP Networking Controller" (my moderborth is and Soltek 75FRN2-SL).

How can I fix this? I'm a newbie on Red Hat but not on linux. Running slack ware on my server non graphic.

2. I can't mount NTFS partions in redhat. I think I have to recompile my kernel but I don't know how.

Thx for helping!

You'll have to go to the nvidia site and download the drivers for Linux and install them (the nforce drivers).

It dosen't look like it's installning. I can't find the module nvnet.


I have tried to unistall
rpm -e NVIDA_nforce

and then my grafic in the consol seems to not been working eider.

I ran the
rpm -i NVIDA_nforce*
again

But now eider the grafic in the consol or the network card works.


I have allso tried to compile the source by my self.
But that gives me just errors.


Plase Please help me!

Has anybody had any luck with this? I installed the RPM package I see 'nvnet' listed, but when I try to activate it, it says it can not be found?

Any luck with this would be greatly appreciated.

I fixed it!

First of al I installed the the latest kernel patch and also i installed kernel source. Kernel source was my problem. First I din't have that and it complained about almost everything when I tryed to install the nvidia drivers. But after I've installed it, it worked like a charm.

So first:
Install the newest kernel-pacth
Install the corsponding kernel-source
install the tar.gz file from nvidia


Good Luck!

I'm having the same problem as your first one; I'm trying to get that to work now.

As for the problem regarding NTFS, I suggest you go to http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/redhat9.html and get an RPM there (in my case I got the 2.4.20-8 athlon RPM). Note that it is only read-only, though.
