Default Debian and post compiltion of the 1.0-0310 driver

Hi everyone,

I've got a small problem, i've an A8N-VM CSM mother board, and i install a debian on it, but at the installation the network controller was't found. thats not a problem.

After the install i made the

sh NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0310-pkg1.run
That made the driver corectly but now what i have to do to enable it ?I made what it say in the documentation (here) but it doesn't enable the network controler, if some one have an idea it will be helpfull for me.

Thanks a lot

Are the built-in network controller enabled in your system BIOS? Sometimes it can default to off.
modprobe -v nvnet to load kernel module or use modprobe -v forcedeth to load the opensource driver that comes with the 2.6 kernel.

To get the network connection up and running you probably want to use DHCP, install a dhcp-client(apt-get install dhcp-client) and make sure that /etc/network/interfaces reads something like:
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
