hey guys. I am back with my second post, which is a network problem. I had everything setup and running awesome. But I just rebooted and I cant connect to the internet.
Upon boot is FAILS written in red when it says: setting hostname and also FAILS when starting the the network.
My /etc/rc.conf looks fine which is setup for dhcp.
when in root if I run /etc/rc.d/network start it still FAILS.
i ran dhcpcd eth0 up and I get this:
eth0: unkown interface: No such device
I think this happend after the recent pacman -Syu but I dont know for sure. Another thing is, I never needed to put my eth0 driver into the rc.conf MODULES. I tried it now to see if that was the problem, and it still is not working.
But it is also failing, as I mentiod before, when it sets my host at bootup. why is that? everything is fine in my /etc/hosts file as well. I tried everything I can think of, does anyone have any suggestions? please help, this really sucks.
i just tried to do a modprobe -v eepro100 and got this error message:
FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.10-ARCH/modules.dep : No such file or directory
if I do a ifconfig -a I don't see me eth0 card, am I supposed to?
tom.deb, I will try the hwd -s right now, i will reboot and be back.
the hwd -s gives me:
Ethernet: Intel Corp. |828010B (ICH5) PRO/100 VE Ethernet Controller Module: e100
tried loading the e100 module in rc.conf but still does not work.
something got real messed up cause everything was fine for the first couple days using arch.
nevermind. I ran lilo and rebooted, now it works all of a sudden. It was after a pacman -Syu and i think it was udev ??? i feel better now.
I run kernel 22.214.171.124-ARCH and it includes the modules.
$ find /lib/modules/126.96.36.199-ARCH/ -iname e100.ko /lib/modules/188.8.131.52-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/e100.ko $ find /lib/modules/184.108.40.206-ARCH/ -iname eepro100.ko /lib/modules/220.127.116.11-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/eepro100.ko
Look yourself to see if the files are there.
download the most recent kernel26 package from your local mirror and install it.
