on my kurumin live cd network is up and lsmod returns
8139too 13608 1
where do i find the insmod modules??
i think i've found the module on /mnt/hdb2/lib/modules/2.6.13-ARCH/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.ko
how do i 'activate' it?
"modprobe -a 8139too" should install it, then " /etc/rc.d/network start "
should get you connected
also check the package was fully downloaded earlier
"ls /var/cache/pacman/pkg | grep -i ker*"
will show you kernels in your cache, then you can install them with pacman -U
when the system is booting, it says something about eth0 not being foung
my rc.conf is as follow:
# Interfaces to start at boot-up (in this order)
# Declare each interface then list in INTERFACES
# (prefix an interface in INTERFACES with a ! to disable it)
# Note: to use DHCP, set your interface to be "dhcp" (eth0="dhcp")
#eth0="eth0 192.168.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.0.255"
i'm going to uncomment the first eth0 line just to see what happens
# Module to load at boot-up (in this order)
# (prefix a module with a ! to disable it)
MODULES=(!usbserial !ide-scsi 8139too nvidia)
so i really don't understand what's going on.
i upgraded the kernel to 2.6.13 and tried to boot, still getting the same kernel panic msg.
what other package may I upgrade?
accuracy of code is paramount
the speechmarks are needed, if your running hwd or hotplug you shouldn't need modules listed unless they are missed by hwd or hotplug.
can you post your /etc/fstab as if you have reinstalle dthe kernel you should no longer get this.......
also grub menu.lst lets try and get you sortef!! 8) [/code]
if i do an "lsmod" no modules are listed, also i found out that the system can't locate ANY module. in the booting, i get a MODULE 8139too not found also MODULE nvidia not found.
if i want to insmod manually, what's the extension of a module file?? that "8139too.ko" is a module file???
thanks again, i can't stress how much helpful you're being!
yes it is, i think dont worry about insmod use modprobe as root...
but if you edit rc.conf as per my last post you will probably have a working connection on reboot......
it is eth0="dhcp"
please post rc.conf fstab and grub menu.lst
your error is undoubtedly with one of these......
surprisingly after i booted from the old line of menu.lst
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/discs/disc0/part2 ro video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr vga=791
it worked. i don't know why udev isn't working on my system
[root@universo ~]# uname -r
i was installing a newer kernel when i had the problem, and as it did install i didn't think that this would work (but i did test this seeting - but not after reinstalling the kernel)
anyway, know i want this kernel to be with me forever, will
IgnorePkg = kernel26
thanks a lot mpie, if you're in brazil anytime, fell free to contact me
ah we all start somewhere.......
again, thanks a lot!!!
i'm now completely windows-free!
