Onboard nic
I have an MSI 6367 mobo running RH9.
I think that I have installed the correct drivers, but the onboard nic is not recognised. Is this an IRQ conflict?
I followed advice given in an archive of nvnews.
I hope the following helps:

[root@localhost root]# ifconfig eth0
eth0: error fetching interface information: Device not found

Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. The module may be trying to access
GPLONLY symbols but the problem is more likely to be a coding or
user error. Contact the module supplier for assistance, only they
can help you.

It means that the nvnet driver has been miscompiled and that the module loading code cannot find the symbols that nvnet supposedly needs. You need to recompile nvnet and try again.

Thanks for your reply,
This file is in my home directory and when I click on it I am told that it is already installed. However when i try to uninstall it as perr instructions for removal of binary rpm (i presume that it is a binary rpm?) files in the nvidia documentation I am told that it is not installed.
I am new to linux but have been interested in it for some time. My problem is that i seem to get lumbered with the wrong type of hardware all the time.
Close to tears (again!)

Hi again,
Thanks for your reply, but i think i have made a mistake Does the following mean that I haven't got the kernel source?
[jinty@localhost jinty]$ rpm -qa | grep kernel

That's right. You can either fetch a 2.4.20-6 Red Hat kernel source tree or download a stock 2.4.22 kernel from www.kernel.org. After compiling it and restarting the system you can then uninstall the binary NVIDIA RPM, download the NVIDIA code and try to compile nvnet, using the 2.4.22 source code.
