Re: Ethernet not found
Try this when modconf asks for the command line:
If you don't know the irq just leave it out and see if it works. You can also
try the insmod utility from command line with something like:
insmod card_driver_module io=0x200 irq=the_irq
If you do that you also have to fix your /etc/conf.modules. This is what it
looks like for my 3c509 module:
options 3c509 io=0x300 irq=10
Since you probably want it to load automatically during boot /etc/modules
needs some work too. Again this is what I have:
Just a single line with the name of the module is enough.
These examples are for a 3c509 card but I think most of the cards understand
the io and irq parameters. However this only worked for me after I run pnpdump
which comes with the isapnptools package.
The modconf utility in /usr/sbin is the same that is run during the install
procedure. Modconf takes care of the /etc/modules and /etc/conf.modules
updating so you don't have to fix them by hand.
