I know this question has been raised before, but I haven't been able to find any solution...
Any kind of advise will be appreciated.
Here's the problem: I have ABit NV7m motherboard with nForce chipset. That includes onboard LAN and onboard audio. The stuff works fine under different flavors of Windoze...
Now I've installed Debian 3.1 on that system. I've also compiled and installed 2.4.20 kernel (I always feel comfortable with the latest stable kernel
I also built latest (0248) nvnet module without any issues. I can bring eth0 interface up, but it doesn't see local network
traceroute reports "Network unreachable" and arp shows "incomplete" information for the host on localnet I'm trying to ping.
I ran lspci -v and found out that LAN, Audio and USB all share IRQ 11 !!! There are no options in BIOS to explicitly assign those, and neither there are any "P&P OS Installed" kind of options.
However, when I simply disabled onboard Audio, LAN magically started to work... I'm really frustrated with nForce (I should've known better not to get into "integrated on-board" business, but...) I can live without sound for the time being, but it'd be nice to make it all work together. Any directions... please!
