Newbie question about Modem


I have an USB modem and i managed to make it worked under GNOME but i get an error message when i log in and when i try to access its configuration via the GUI. The following is what i get:

eth0 has an alias to module CDC in modules.conf instead of currently loaded module CDC ethernet class!

i also get an error message when i log in but its kind of long... post if you want me to post it


The question is what should i do to make these message cease??

Thanks in advance

the problem is in the /etc/modules.conf file

post the file here and someone may know what's wrong by looking at it


cat /etc/modules.conf

it sounds like somewhere you are loading a different module module with insmod or something

try commenting the line in /etc/modules.conf

#alias eth0 CDC

It did not work.... the same alias was rewritten in the file just below the line i commented.

i dont know if it can help but when i boot i get an error telling me that the os cant look up my local ip adress... but still i can use mozilla.

It seems like it must be in an init script.

What distro is it?

I am thinking you could try to remove the module and try reloading it.

i have RH 8.0...

But i begin thinking it is not an error as we think it is.... im not sure if i mentionned it earlier but i have an usb cable modem... and it is that that the os is detecting as an ethernet card, since i have not installed any drivers for the usb modem...
I will look deeper into this

Thanks
