Installing a 3c2000-T


I got the driver for my 3c2000-T from the cd and my kernel is an appropriate version but when I run the 'make load' command... I get this

insmod: 3c2000.o
make: insmod: Command not found
make: *** [load] error 127


Any help would be much appreciated.

Not root

Hey,
are yoy logged in as root?
I have the same NIC, 3com 3c2000. Thsi is what you got to do.
1. Start a console.
2. su -
(enter your root password)
3. cd to_the_directory_where_3c2000_is.
4. type make clean (you have to have make tools installed)
5. type make install
6. type make load
7. ifconfig eth0 dhcp,

You should be up and running now.

Put this in your modules.conf file:

# 3com Onboard Ethernet
alias eth1 3c2000

Put the module in a location so the kernel can find it:

/lib/modules/<kernel version>/kernel/drivers/net/3c2000.o

Hi there Gyuszko!
Do you have the right kernel source?
Did you try to load the driver more than once?
Issue all the steps I mention earlier:
-make clean
-make install
-make load
edit /etc/modules.conf to contain
alias eth0 3c2000.o

If you donít issue make clean it will clutter up your system!
One other thing that comes to mind is, do you have the right kernel source installed?

Hey I got it to work!!!

YOU MUST LOG IN AS ROOT TO DO THIS.

All you have to do is get the driver off the cd, and follow the readme instructions for extracting it.

Then move into the folder containing the makefile (3c2000).

(for this to work you need to have the kernel source loaded in /usr/source/linuxXXX)

Then type:
make clean
then
make install
then
make load

This will do all the preperations and load the module to where it needs to go.

After this, you must go to /etc/sysconfig and edit the hwconf file. It will have a listing for your card and know that it is a 3com but not what type or what driver to use. It will look something like this:

class: NETWORK
bus: PCI
detached: 0
device: eth
driver: unknown
desc: "3Com Corporation|unknown device 10b7:1700"
vendorId: 10b7
deviceId: 1700
subVendorId: 10b7
subDeviceId: 0020
pciType:

go in and change 'driver: unknown' to 'driver: 3c2000' and then go to your network control panel and when u create a new ethernet card it will be listed so you can choose it now.



The only thing I don't quite get is I did this are root. I'm looking back at it for this post from a user and when I looked at my /etc/sysconfig/hwconf it shows that the driver is unknown but it still works. I dunno maybe I'll add it again or something but it did work for me.

Oh yeah and make sure u do what solspin said in a post previous about the modules.conf and the module should have been placed where he said by using the make commands I have listed above.

Still doesn't work!

Hi Andreas!

> Do you have the right kernel source?

I have 2.4.20-8 (I guess it's the right kernel).

> Did you try to load the driver more than once?

Yes...

> Issue all the steps I mention earlier:
> -make clean

It works. (I think)

> -make install
> -make load

make install and make load returns:
"make: *** [skge.o] Error 1"
so there isn't any "3c2000.o"


> One other thing that comes to mind is, do you have the right kernel source installed?

I have 2.4.20-8 that comes with Redhat 9.0. I think it's good for the driver.

Thanks:
Gyuszko

Hi all,

I've been having similar problems. Though I have made some progress.

I've followed all the steps above, and my device has been recognised correctly. However, when I restart Linux I find an anoying failed message stating that eth0 '3c2000' does not seem to be present. This is obvisouly not the case and if I run "insmod 3c2000.o" the device comes up correctly. I have edited the 'hwconf' and 'modules.conf' files as suggested.

If anyone has any advice I would apreciate it.

Thanks,

Andrew

Success!

I've made it!

I downloaded the sk98lin driver from syskonnect's site. It didn't work for the first try so I uninstalled/installed the kernel source and I tried to install the driver once more. It was succesful. I think, there was something trash in my kernel source.
