RH9 NForce Question
I purchased a "Shuttle Sn41g2", and installed Red Hat 9 on it. In case you were wondering, the Shuttle uses the NVidia NForce chipset.
The video and sound seem to be working fine, however, I cannot get any response from the network card.
I went to the NVidia's website and downloaded both rpm files for RH9, but neither one seem to do anything for me. I tried to add network devices, using the nvidia link, but it doesn't ever seem to detect the card.
I'm sorry I do not have any config files available yet. I had to write this message on one of my other computers. I was just wondering if there was anything obvious that I was missing, or if anyone else encountered these issues and had any suggestions.
At this point, I'm definately open to suggestions :)
It's a bit late here, but I thought I would add in some useful information.
On the NVidia website, in the NForce drivers (for Linux) section, there are 2 different rpm files to download, one ends in a 6, the other a 9 (I'll refer to them like this from now on). The 9 has a note that it is for Kernel Upgrade.
I tried installing the 6 and then eventually the 9. I get further with the 6 installation.
Here are my steps:
- Open the Internet Config Wizard
- Choose Ethernet
- Choose "nvnet (etho0)"
- Keep settings the same (Automatically find IP address, etc)
After I finish this, it sends me into the Network Configuration dialog, the device has a status of "inactive". I try to activate it, and I get this message: "nvnet device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initilazation".
I never get any further than this. Any suggestions? Thanks for your time!
i'm having the same problem with redhat 9 (2.4.20-20.9) on an hp a220n (athlon xp). did you ever solve the problem?
fyi, i loaded the binary version for 2.4.20-9 and didn't try to recompile yet.
i read something from matthewchin (one of the earlier posts). his suggestion worked:
Please d/l and install from the tar ball instead:
tar -xvzf NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar
nvnet.o should be created successfully.
Now seems eth0 can be recognised even at startup.
i think the src.rpm version is no good (doesn't seem to deploy the objects). hope this helps.
