Network Failure after upgrade- "No such device"

Basically I'm just using a generic Intel PCI network card

When the network script starts upon booting I get the following errors:

SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
eth0: unknown interface: No such device
SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device
SIOCSIFBRDADDR: No such device
eth0: unknown interface: No such device
SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable

Have you tried using /dev/input/mice for your mouse?

Re: Network Failure after upgrade- "No such device"

OK...

When I boot up some modules are failing to load. I tried to use modprobe, but its failing, it seems modprobe isn't loading them from the correct location, its looking in /lib/modules/2.6.??? while the modules are infact in /lib/modules/2.6.13-ARCH/

lsmod is telling me NO modules are loaded at all.

My bootmanager is lilo, which I adjusted to conform with this upgrade, and reran it.

I dont quite understand why its not working  :x

Do you have a separate /boot partition? Is it specified as noauto in fstab? If so, mount it and reinstall the new kernel.

Re: Network Failure after upgrade- "No such device"

I double checked my lilo.conf, and while I was in the directory I also saw a lilo.conf.pacnew which I changed to reflect my lilo.conf. I then reran lilo and its now working, I dont know if it had anything to do with the lilo.conf.pacnew or what that file is for. But its almost all up and running now smile

So BryanY, try running lilo again...

Re: Network Failure after upgrade- "No such device"

I'm running grub.  I've made the necessary menu.lst changes.

My sound drivers work, as well as my video drivers.

But it just won't seem to detect my network card.

[also, I'm using the standard Arch kernel without any modifications]

Re: Network Failure after upgrade- "No such device"

I posted this really often in the last 3 days so plz don't annoyed by this answer.

Downgrading to an older kernel should solve your problems or compile one by yourself. The stock 2.6.13 makes a lot of trouble you can see this when looking through the forum.

Using archck from the community repo might also help.

Re: Network Failure after upgrade- "No such device"

I reverted back to kernel 2.12 and the network works.

Unfortunately, the nVidia driver installer is asking for gcc 3.4 and can't seem to compile the module.

Re: Network Failure after upgrade- "No such device"

OK, i got my network card to work with the new kernel.

Basically I just installed the hwd package and then configured it to startup before the network script.
