Default nForce Newest Driver for eth0 probem


I use RH9 and motherboard 2thmax 8RDA+, with nVIDIA nForce
lan build-in.

The PC is configured as internal lan and crossover to another pc
to internet.

In RH9, I d/l the latest nForce .rpm driver, but cannot config eth0 successfully, please help.


"nvnet device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization"

Add in /etc/modules.conf:

alias eth0 nvnet
options nvnet optimization=1

as indicated by the html documentation.

I try modprobe nvnet; but modules seems not found.

The same PC installed WIN and the land card can be properly setup.

Hi all,

Please d/l and install from the tar ball instead:

Install steps
tar -xvzf NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar
cd nforce
make install

nvnet.o should be created successfully.
Now seems eth0 can be recognised even at startup.

I will try more .....

Default How I fixed it...

I had problems installing from source. Typing "make" gave me multiple screens worth of error messages, so I began investigating.

On my virgin RedHat 9.0 installation (only added NTFS RPM), I found that the Makefile was trying to include libraries located at /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/build. However, the file is a symbolic link to /usr/include/linux-2.4.20-8.

Since I didn't have the "Kernel Development" RPMs installed, this link was broken. After installing those files from the RedHat CDs, everything worked perfectly.

Hope this helps out.
