A7N8X, Mandrake 9.1, network problems
Can anyone help me, why tells me the Mandrake, that the Nforce2 MCP is not a valid ethernet card ?

you need to install the motherboard drivers...


DuncanGhola 04-01-03 12:39 AM

Thanx, it was the first thing i did, so the error came after the install.
It recognizez the MCP network controller, but doesn't work
I tried both, the ASUS and the NVIDIA drivers :(

Were there any errors associated with installation of those drivers?


DuncanGhola 04-06-03 07:11 AM

Well, yes, but it installed itself.
It said, it's not qualified, or something like that, but it installed itself, but only with the original nvidia drivers, the ASUS drivers were totally incompatible.
If you need, i reinstall it to see, what does it writes

can you provide any logs? from startup or initializing the modules or ..? ;)

DuncanGhola 04-06-03 09:40 AM

Well, i tried again, except the GPG certification is doesn't says a word,looks OK, so i checked the internet connection (DSL), it found the Nvidia MCP Ethernet Controller, but can't use. :confused:

I found that the RPM version of the Network card driver is not compatable with Mandrake 9.1

What I did was first install the RPM version, the sound driver works fine.

Then I installed the source version, (but only the network driver)

Used modprobe to start the services and i was up and running. The only snag was the computer was set to DHCP and I forgot I disabled it.
