gives the following error :

FATAL : module e100 not found

And /sbin/insmode e100 gives :

can't read e100 : no such file or directory

I wonder what happened to the mudules.

Anything else that I can try ?


I was running into the exact same problem on CentOS 5.4.

I found the solution which worked for me in another thread.

Simply running "depmod -a" followed by "modprobe e100" solved it for me.

Hopefully this helps someone else searching for that error message!

ip for your card is atuomatic with dhcp or manually set ?
If dhcp, try to set manually the card, as root :
ifconfig ethn YOUR.IPAD.RESS.xxxx up
route add default gw YOUR.GATE.WAYx.IPxx

and try to ping local address.
if it works, fill the /etc/resolv.conf file with the outside gateway providing by your ISP

The module for your card can be uploaded only when you use the card, it's why you didn't see it when lsmod. Did you try lsmod|grep -i eth ?
