Ethernet not found


I recently installed Slackware 12.0 and during installation I did not configure any network settings as I didn't know them, after I booted linux, there was no eth0 found,my ethernet is an Intel PRO/100 VE, i figured the best module to load was eepro100,and I added it to the modules loaded during boot, there were no errors loading it,but after running ifconfig -a and netconfig there is no eth0 found in the /dev/ folder. what should I do to fix this?

A network interface will not show up in /dev . If "ifconfig -a" shows an eth0 then it is there and you need to configure it before it becomes useful.

Well,"ifconfig -a" does not show anything about eth0, and even after I run netconfig and set the connection settings it still doesn't show anything like the settings I put... Any help?

From the cli do a 'lspci -vv' to see the devices to make sure of the NIC being there. The 'Intel PRO/100 VE' does use the eepro100 but I would use the e100.k0 to check it out. The e100 should support the pro/100.

BTW, are you sure the module is loaded? Do a 'lsmod' to find out. If the device is there and you load the module then there is another problem. Look at your 'dmesg' output.

I managed to make it work, you are right the e100 was the correct module to load,I removed it from the blacklist file of modules,modprobed it and it works fine. Thanks for all your help.
