ifconfig eth1 and nothing!


OK not sure whats happening here or whats not happening here, but my net connection is not working. I have an intel pro/1000 integrated card on my ibm x31. I have it set to eth1. I dont get any error messages or anything. When I do

services network restart

I get all OKs

when I do ifconfig eth1 or eth0 I get device not found and when I do

kudzu -p

AMD PCnet32 is listed as my eth

ideas? Also, on boot i get an ok. So how can I remove the AMD and switch it with the correct intel? Please be explicit and type slowly so's I can understand.

Thanks in advance!

It's not quite clear from the post, but are you
running RH in a VMWare virtual machine?

You really should state that kind of thing in your
question rather than assuming a reader may guess
it from your signature.

If you are that would explain why the physical
intel doesn't show and you see a AMD card instead.

It's safe to assume that the eth should be eth0, not
eth1 ... change that, and if that doesn't help come
back and be a bit more descriptive about what you're
trying to achieve.


Cheers,
Tink

Run linuxconf on a command prompt and that should help u set up your connections.

Hope that helps

Yes, I am running Redhat 9 kernel 2.6.9 linux within vmware 4.5.2. I restored my machine to a fresh install of kernel 2.6.9 which was the only thing I have done to the machine sense the initial install of red hat 9. So everything is at the default settings. Linux reads my card as an AMD PCnet32 card. I have an Intel pro/1000 card. I cannot connect to the internet. I have my "AMD PCnet32" card set to eth0. When I run "service network restart" bringing up interface eth0 indicates that the device is not present. Running "linuxconf" at the command produces a "bash: linuxconf: command not found" error. Also I went to "/sbin" and ran linuxconf with another bash error. Seems linuxconf is not apart of the 2.6 kernel. Hope that is detailed enough. and that I have addressed everyones comments/suggestions.

Thanks for all of the helps!

I can only suggest to look at how you set-up
the VM in the first place, what options you chose
for your virtual PC in respect to networking. This
is more likely a vmware problem than a RH one.

linuxconf has nothing to do with the kernel (or
the kernel-version in use) ... it's a product that
certainly used to be part of RH in the past.



Cheers,
Tink

I rebooted into kernel 2.4-20 and I can get the "AMD card" working. As soon as I boot into 2.6.9. The device is no longer detected; however, it is listed under kudzu -p. What might be some options to get the card to be detected?

Thanks for the help!
