Psych
Perhaps.
Joeytgstk
Is it possible to create a boot disk through windows?
dirtydog
mine on the vaio was that i kept getting eth0 seeing 1394, and i had to active eth1 to see the nic
Psych
The answer lies in the stars.
Bugger off there and find it.
Gidzz[mobil]
wrong nic module or so?
burn an iso joey
         

dirtydog
one of my installs ran off of eth1, this current and the best one yet is now on eth0.
conga
i need sk98lin module instead of tulip
anyone here use sk98lin module?
Joeytgstk
No, bootable cd's aren't working
Because my motherboard has an embedded version of drdos 7.03 on it
Gidzz[mobil]
what nic?
conga
Ash*taka, can you help me get it to work?
Joeytgstk
piece of crap
conga
Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8001 Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 13)
Joeytgstk
And it doesn't see fat32, or partitions over 2gb, so it doesn't even allow a boot cd to work
Gidzz[mobil]
if you cant boot up on cd..
Joeytgstk
but a boot floppy works
i tried mandriva, but it didn't detect my cdrom drive after booting
conga
ok
i compiled it into kernel
bad?
oh
Gidzz[mobil]
congas nic is an evil nic
conga
lol
it 's expensive
i thought it's good
i bought it for 29$
Gidzz[mobil]
pcie
Joeytgstk
Ash*taka, any suggestions, this computer is far from too slow
conga
Ash*taka: CONFIG_SK98LIN=M?
right?
Gidzz[mobil]
there are patches
conga
yeah
i did make menuconfig before
i know
Joeytgstk
Ash*taka: As soon as it tries to boot from cd it takes me to drdos
That's very true
conga
Ash*taka, can you paste me your /etc/config.d/net ?
i think mine setting is wrong
i have a router
         

Autie
conga: look into /etc/conf.d/net.example
conga
but i dont know which one to use
Autie
conga: look into /etc/conf.d/net.example, use /etc/conf.d/net
Gidzz[mobil]
conga:
Autie
.example means its an example
:p
Gidzz[mobil]
i have a suggestion
conga
do i use dhcp?
iface_eth0="dhcp
"
right?
Gidzz[mobil]
use make menuconfig
and read the helps about the marvell nic
conga
do you think i need to get another card?
Gidzz[mobil]
no
conga
ok
Gidzz[mobil]
read the helps there i bet it says what module is the correct one
if you understand what the `help`s are
Psych
hey! I was talking to you!
conga
edit .config is much better
Gidzz[mobil]
says who?
conga
say me
lol
Autie
i think conga said
Dreadfull
make menuconfig && make && make modules_install owns
*ownz
Gidzz[mobil]
a friend had marvell issues before
so i noticed that there was a module not called sk98lin built for the marwell gigabit nics
in the gentoo-sources
all was told in the menuconfig help
conga
yes
finally!!!!!! i got internet working
lol
:D
yay
Gurkan

conga
ehheee
linux is very confusing
lol
how do i auto start the module at boot?
Autie
built it in
traumahound
0x01
conga
Autie build it in kernel?
Autie
yes
conga
i built it as module
like Ash*taka suggested
Autie
not as 'M' but as '*'
conga
oh
Autie
well, do you will always need it?
traumahound
put the module name in /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.x
Autie
yeah
well, i tell people my rule i always use: something you always need = built-in, something you don't need always = module
but as you said
when it fails, try it as module
:)
