2.6.6 and Slack troubles


After 2 days of sweating - finally got 2.6.6 running on the fresh install of Slack9.1. Found the problem finally.

Now after I rebooted into 2.6.6 it doenst detect my ethernet card.( I have on board Intel 82545em something) Plus it gives me errors like this:
snd_pcm_oss not found and the same thing for snd_mixer_oss.

when I was configuring my kernel I chacked almost everyhitng related to network and sound. BTW, didnt found where the ALSA drivers are. Only found USB ALSA something (well added it anyway) I compiled everything into the kernel, tried it thousand times with different configuration - but still networking and sound do not work =(

Code:
# Advanced Linux Sound Architecture
#
CONFIG_SND=y
CONFIG_SND_TIMER=m
CONFIG_SND_PCM=m
CONFIG_SND_RAWMIDI=m
# CONFIG_SND_SEQUENCER is not set
CONFIG_SND_OSSEMUL=y
CONFIG_SND_MIXER_OSS=y
# CONFIG_SND_PCM_OSS is not set
# CONFIG_SND_VERBOSE_PRINTK is not set
# CONFIG_SND_DEBUG is not set

okey sound seams to be working now.... I just wish that my ethernet card would and it would be the best Linux distro I had so far.

dsedov, exactly what type is your nic card? does it have another name?
are you compiling it as a module and forgetting to load it up at boot time?
is your network configureation work before you upgraded the kernel?

Well its a built in Intel Ethernet card and in kerlnel 2.4.22 it was deteckted as Intel 10/100Pro and it worked. I just recompiled 2.4.22 (the only kernel that worked for me .... still no sound though) with SMP, basically what I needed most, and ethernet card worked as well. Is there a log for all the boot messsages - I could post it, so you guys could see whats wrong.. Well at least my recompile of 2.4.22 works so far (no sound though)

Well I think in kernels downloaded from kernel.org, only 2.4.26 had that intel 10/100 Pro. I think that 2.6.6 doesnt have that module, I might be wrong though, but kernel 2.6.6 has less options in make menuconfig

dsedov, have you run alsaconfig or alsamixer with 2.4.22? Also, have you gone into /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and uncommented your soundcard? out of curiosity, what kind of soundcard do you have?

Boot it into 2.4.22 and print the lsmod output. The module names shouldn't have changed. Take it back to 2.6.6 and try to load those modules.

hi,
You need to include the following module and compile the kernel again :

Networking support
--Networking support
----Network Device support
------Ethernet(10 or 100Mbit)
--------EISA,VLB,PCI and onboard controllers
----------EtherExpressPro/100 support (eepro100)

I got mine working with this.

it is an intel 8x0 driver and you need to have the kernel either build these as modules or recompule the actul drivers and put there refences inside modprobe.conf (slackware doesn't use modules.conf) if that doesnt work then use rc.local to load the modules and restore the sound state
