Re: kernel compilation, ethernet card modules


I has locate my 2 ethernet cards with the lspci comand, thanks chris.

Then i has go to make menuconfig and have selected this two ethernet drivers
in order to recompile the kernel. Then when i restarted with my new kernel
it has take the eth0 driver but it has take it with a message error of " ...
it is on half duplex sheame ... " so when i do a ifconfig it did not get an
ip on a dhcp query.

And the second problem is that it seems to not load the driver to eth1 and i
has security about the correct driver selected.

Any ideas about this two problems?

Thanks in advance.

First of all you should know, which ethernet card you have:
manufacturer, model, useful is to know the chipset.

-> lspci could give you a hint.

then you can try to load the driver for your card with modconf. The
cards are named there, so perhaps it is easier to find the
appropriate module with this tool.

Once you know the module and you want to compile a custom kernel,
you have to use this module, which works when loading with modconf.

Other possibility: you boot with 2.2.20 and do
this shows you the loaded modules, but if you did not compile it as
module, it does not show up (if compiled in the kernel)
