port address for isa card
 
question-
how does one go about telling modprobe what port to use for an isapnp card?

this is what i have done and the errors that come up.

first the output from /proc/isapnp-
Card 1 'RTL8019:Realtek Plug & Play Ethernet Card' PnP version 1.0 Product version 1.0
Logical device 0 'RTL8019:Unknown'
Supported registers 0x2
Compatible device PNP80d6
Device is active
Active port 0x220
Active IRQ 5 [0x2]
Resources 0
Priority preferred
Port 0x220-0x380, align 0x1f, size 0x20, 10-bit address decoding
IRQ 3,4,5,2/9,10,11,12,15 High-Edge

now-
root@Cerberus:~$ modprobe ne
/lib/modules/2.4.20-pent-ide/kernel/drivers/net/ne.o: init_module: No such device or address
/lib/modules/2.4.20-pent-ide/kernel/drivers/net/ne.o: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg

/lib/modules/2.4.20-pent-ide/kernel/drivers/net/ne.o: insmod ne failed

then-
root@Cerberus:~$ insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-pent-ide/kernel/drivers/net/8390.o &&
> insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-pent-ide/kernel/drivers/net/ne

/lib/modules/2.4.20-pent-ide/kernel/drivers/net/ne.o: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg

dmesg-
ne.c: ISAPnP reports Generic PNP at i/o 0x220, irq 5.

and-
isapnp: Scanning for PnP cards...
isapnp: Card 'Realtek Plug & Play Ethernet Card'
isapnp: 1 Plug & Play card detected total


i have put alias eth1 ne "io=0x220" in /etc/modules.conf and still the same thing. i've put it in as just alias eth1 ne, and still the error comes up on boot.

syslog-
Jul 4 13:33:59 Cerberus kernel: ne.c: Probe of ISAPnP card at 0x220 failed.
Jul 4 13:34:00 Cerberus kernel: usb-uhci.c: Detected 2 ports
Jul 4 13:35:47 Cerberus kernel: ne.c: No NE*000 card found at i/o = 0x220
Jul 4 13:37:03 Cerberus kernel: ne.c: No NE*000 card found at i/o = 0x220
Jul 4 13:42:29 Cerberus kernel: ne.c: No NE*000 card found at i/o = 0x220

i've done a search on google/linux and that's the only driver that i can see to use for the card.

any thoughts?

thanks.

edit: sorry should have said that i'm running vector, slack based on that machine.

200mhz cpu
141m ram

trying to config as firewall, using iptables.

most isa cards come with dos based config tools that you can run to checkwhat resources these cards would use. Also, my experience with NE2000 cards - these dos based programs need to be run to alter some parameters burned on the card.

based from the logs that you have, maybe you can try playing around with the modules - via insmod or modprobe

hth.

ok, i figured out the problem. i know i should have realized it before. the irq's where shut off in the bios.

now i'm having problems with trying to get the thing to put out a dhcpd report. not sure if that's what i mean, trying to get it so that another machine is seeing that it is a dhcp server. by what i've done so far the, so called server, is working like i think it should. but i'm not getting any requests, so who knows. i'll have to put up another post, unless you know what to do.

thanks.
