forcedeth


Hey,
I've been having problems getting my nforce NIC to work on RedHat 9.0. I posted my situation in a previous thread found at:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...threadid=153129

However, no one replied. I searched through some other threads and came upon something called forcedeth used for the NVIDIA chipset. I followed this link:

http://www.hailfinger.org/carldani/...ches/forcedeth/

and came to what seems to be a download page. Since I'm really new to Linux, I'm not sure what I need to download and how to get it installed. If anyone knows how I would go about getting it all installed, I would greatly appreciate your help. I recently installed this file:

kernel-2.4.20-30.9.athlon.rpm

Thanks in advance.

Dude - you've posted this same exact question in the Networking forum. Please don't cross-post. http://www.linuxquestions.org/rules.php -- J.W.

Sorry, but I'm sure you know how frustrating it can be. I'd be working at this for over a month.

Indeed I do, but if you post the same question in more than one forum, any useful answers you may receive will be scattered across more than one thread, which would be sort of like buying 2 gallons of gasoline at 5 different filling stations instead of 10 gallons at one station. By keeping all answers for a given question within one single thread, you make it easier for both yourself and any other people who might have the same question to find useful responses.

If a full day or two goes by with no response, LQ lets you bump your post again, but posting the same question in >1 forum is always frowned upon. I wish you well in resolving the original issue. -- J.W.

Download the appropriate rpm from this page and install it. Then do(as root):

modprobe nvnet

You will probably have to restart your network to get an ip once the module is installed:

/etc/init.d/network restart

That should do the trick.
