NForce (forcedeth) install help?
 
Hi,

Looking for a bit of help. I'm running SuSE (10, x86_64), so have to compile the forcedeth module by hand. The compile step seems to go fine, and I copied the new kernel module to:
/lib/modules/2.6.13-15.11-smp/kernel/drivers/net/forcedeth.ko

With the nvnet driver, I would then have to run Yast, go to NIC configuration, edit the CK804 settings, and on the advanced settings tab manually type in nvnet for the module name.

If I do this, replacing nvnet with forcedeth, I cannot get the NIC to come up. If I restart Yast I then have 3 NICs listed (2 x CK804 and 1 x Marvell gigabit (not being used)).

Do I need to remove the nvnet module (rmmod nvnet) before starting Yast? Or uninstall the module from the system?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Best wishes,

Jon.

nvnet would need to be unconfigured/removed if you wished to use forcedeth.
