RH9.0 update whacked nvnet device eth0
Installed RedHat 9.0 (kernel 2.4.20-8), installed nVidia nForce driver 1.0-0261 from source rpm. Everything worked fantastic. Updated kernel to 2.4.20-20.9 through RedHat Network update. Now when system goes into interactive mode during boot and attempts to load network adapter I get the following error message:
"Bringing up device eth0: nvnet device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization"
Tried reinstalling the driver, rpm says such and such module already installed. Tried creating another nvnet device - would not initialize.
Obviously, if I boot with 2.4.20-8, it still works perfectly.
