Question nvnet doesnt work after update ...


first of all my system:
- MSI K7N2-Delta ILSR
- AMD Athlon XP 2500+
- NVidia GForce 4 MX440
- SUSE Linux 9.0
and me:

With some help of a friend i installed the following driver to get network connection:

After we got it work, i called the SUSE-Linux-Online-Update
and installed all patches that were possible.
There has been a patch for NVIDIA, a Kernel-Patch for AMD-CPUs
and some other patches. So after this patches and reboot i am
not more possible to connect to internet.

I am newbee on Linux!

if i type "ifconfig" on shell i get this:

lo Protokoll:Lokale Schleife
inet Adresse: Maske:
inet6 Adresse: ::1/128 Gültigkeitsbereich:Maschine
RX packets:60 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:60 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
Kollisionen:0 Sendewarteschlangenlänge:0
RX bytes:3912 (3.8 Kb) TX bytes:3912 (3.8 Kb)

if i'm looking on the details of networkadapter in SUSEplugger
i see that the name of the adapter is correct.
status is: availability = yes
configured = no
driver info:

Driver Info #0:
Driver Status: nvnet is not active
Driver Activation Cmd: "modprobe nvnet"

if i type "modprobe nvnet" into a shell i get this:

Using /lib/modules/2.4.21-override-athlon/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o

Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. Contact the module supplier for
assistance, only they can help you.

please help me, i don't know what to do or what i am doing wrong.
i tried to reinstall the driver but it seems not working

thanx a lot

Your version of nvnet was compiled against a kernel with CONFIG_MODVERSIONS=y. Recompile nvnet against your current vendor kernel and try again.

Or, if you don't want to use the vendor kernel, you can download 2.4.23-rc5 from www.kernel.org, which includes the new forcedeth driver. forcedeth is a clean-room reverse-implementation of the nvnet driver, and it has full source available.
