I just installed arch and I don't think my network card is being loaded. I imagine there is a module that I need to load, but I have no idea which one.
if I type
>ifconfig eth0 up
it says that eth0: no such device
What can I do?
First of all, what is your ethernet card?
If you can find the make and model, it's quite easy to do a google search and find the name of the module you need to load.
I had the same problem. It's like was said. Either load the module or you could rebuild the kernel with built in support.
when you were installing did you add your module name to rc.conf ? did you do the other edits of rc.conf as well to ensure your module was loaded and your conection would come up at boot?
arch does not auto detect and configure such stuff as other distros do.
I am not your friend
My ethernet card is:
3com 3c905B-txnm xcpci
From what i can find on google I need the 3c59x module (why not a 3c905x module?), but just adding that to the modules listed in rc.conf doesn't do it. What should I do next? I assume I have to get this module from somewhere and put it somewhere, but where?
