Ethernet / forcedeth not working on NF430
 
Abit NF-M2 with NF430 onboard gigabit port is not working. Is this a forcedeth version issue? I'm using the one in 2.6.18 and don't know of a more current one.

Re: Ethernet / forcedeth not working on NF430
 
What does 'not working' mean?

Re: Ethernet / forcedeth not working on NF430 - SOLVED
 
ifconfig didn't show eth0 and I couldn't ping anything.

In the end it was some kind of install problem. I did a clean make of the kernel and it works now. Evidently I had some problem with the forcedeth build.

Thanks!
