Re: [Netboot] Ethernet Driver on 1.8GHz G5?
thanks for your help. I've tried again and I've explicitly selected
sungen, but with no success. The strange thing is I do see an Ethernet
device in the pci tree (from /proc/pci):
~ # cat /proc/pci
Bus 3, device 15, function 0:
Ethernet controller: PCI device 106b:0051 (Apple Computer Inc.) (rev 0).
Master Capable. Latency=16. Min Gnt=64.Max Lat=64.
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0x80400000 [0x805fffff]
sungem also gets loaded as a module (along with sungem_phy and crc32):
~ # lsmod
Module Size Used by
sungem 37124 0
crc32 5120 1 sungem
sungem_phy 10496 1 sungem
ds 24068 0
yenta_socket 23936 0
pcmcia_core 77076 2 ds,yenta_socket
usbserial 33968 0
usbhid 54272 0
ehci_hcd 37380 0
ohci_hcd 26500 0
usbcore 139380 6 usbserial,usbhid,ehci_hcd,ohci_hcd
unix 32408 8
But I get not network device:
/usr/bin # ifconfig eth0
ifconfig: eth0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
I've filled an installation report with this information.
Do you see anything else I could try?
