[debian] NForce - eth0 - K7N420
I installed the driver NFORCE
(NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0301-pkg1.run) on K7N420 for Debian 2.4.

Linux 2.4.27-2-386 #1 Thu Jan 20 10:55:08 JST 2005 i686 GNU/Linux
These drivers, should support my ethernet adapter (MB integrated) on eth0. But i keep on getting the following error :


# modprobe nvnet
Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.27-2-386/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - NVIDIA
  See http://www.tux.org/lkml/#export-tainted for information about tainted modules

/lib/modules/2.4.27-2-386/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o: insmod nvnet failed

:eek: :confused:

Apparently only forcedeth loads.
Should i remove forcedeth?
Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

MB : MSI K7N420Pro

Re: [debian] NForce - eth0 - K7N420
Had to move to kernel 2.6 and desactivate ACPI in Grub.
Now the nvnet module works :-)
