Acer Travelmate 280
I got an Acer Travelmate 280. I installed
Debian Woody, and I upgraded to Sarge via FTP.
Everything went fine, but I needed a kernel
> 2.4.11 that supports my video card.
I apt-got kernel-source-2.4.20, compiled the
kernel, installed it and rebooted...
Now, I dont have any network anymore...
The card is a Realtek 8139, that I selected
in the kernel. I even tried to use it as
a module, but that didn't help neither.
I see that the module is loaded, but it's all.
I can do a "ping 127.0.0.1", but I cant ping other
computers. When I do an "ifconfig eth0", I can
see that my IP is good. It's really the card that
isn't communicating. I see the small red light,
but there's no traffic...
What did I do wrong? Should I select other
options in the kernel? Any HOWTO's that can help
me? Anyone some other suggestions?
I thank you all,
