sk98lin device eth1 does not seem to be present


Trying to get my second NIC to work. It is a d-link DGE 530T network card. Running oracle's enterprise linux similar to REDHAT.

Have checked /etc/modprobe.conf with an entry for
alias eth1 sk98lin
but i get

sk98link device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization

during startup of network / pc.

have also tried

alias eth1 skge

but that doesn't work either.

Any suggestions ?

Sorry I am not a wiz at linux but I'll try and give a response with my limited knowledge .

Check if it eth1 exists in setup or if ifcfg-eth1 exists in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ if it doesn't then your network driver probably hasn't detected the second port successfully and may need to be updated or a newer version of the driver installed into the kernel...

Post result of lspci, this will show if your network card is seen by the
system itself.

Excuse my ignorance, but how do i install a driver into the kernel ? 9complete newbie at this)

I manually created the eth1 file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ as was suggested by someone (jimgolding) in a google page.
When i do a 'lspci' i can see the correct card in the list. not sure what that means - driver detected / installed / working ???

thanks a lot for the response.

anymore help will be greatly appreciated.

eth1

It seems to be a hardware problem. You should see two network adapters
in lspci listing. Try to get out network card from slot and put it back
again, in many cases this helps.
