kernel 2.6.4: e100/eepro100

today i upgraded to kernel26=2.6.4-1
(run lilo and depmod afterwards)

now i have no network on the kernel26

ifconfig tells, that eth0 do not exist

and if i then try by hand

modprobe eepro100 
and then
ifconfig eth0 up

ifconfig then afterwards shows "UNSPEC" as eth0 device and a really funny hardware address (not the MAC one (08:02...)... something like 00-00-06-.... and so one)

any ideas why? anyone has the same?

how can i bring back network on kernel26?

Re: kernel 2.6.4: e100/eepro100

did you be sure that

alias eth0 eepro100

was in /etc/modprobe.conf? Just a quick thought, i don't actuall have that hardware.

thanx for input ... i was using kernel 2.6.3 before and so i had a modprobe.conf working --- that's why i wonder it not longer working with 2.6.4

Re: kernel 2.6.4: e100/eepro100

cleaned /var/log/kernel and tried again (now working standard with 2.4.25 again)

what i have till now:

Mar 12 02:27:12 Asteraceae kernel: Inspecting /boot/System.map
Mar 12 02:27:13 Asteraceae kernel: Symbol table has incorrect version number. 
Mar 12 02:27:13 Asteraceae kernel: Cannot find map file.
Mar 12 02:27:13 Asteraceae kernel: No module symbols loaded - kernel modules not enabled. 
Mar 12 02:27:15 Asteraceae kernel: e100: eth0: e100_probe: addr 0xd0200000, irq 11, MAC addr [MY CORRECT MAC ADDRESS]
Mar 12 02:27:19 Asteraceae kernel: e100: eth0: e100_watchdog: link up, 100Mbps, full-duplex
Mar 12 02:27:29 Asteraceae kernel: eth0: no IPv6 routers present

nothing else with errors ... and /boot/System.map and /boot/System.map26 exist


EDIT: and if i boot 2.4.25 instead of 2.6.4, the lines with eth0 look like this:

Mar 12 02:31:08 Asteraceae kernel: e100: eth0: Intel(R) PRO/100 Network Connection
Mar 12 02:31:11 Asteraceae kernel: e100: eth0 NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full duplex
Mar 12 02:31:19 Asteraceae kernel: eth0: no IPv6 routers present

I don't use the 2.4 kernel anymore, but i have a suggestion. Try moving your  current System.map file to System24.map or something, then ln -s System26.map to System.map. That way it looks at the right one when 2.6 boots up.

tried that ... and it worked -- i have eth0 back on 2.6.x, thanx a lot

but now while starting up, there comes a message, that do not really look nice:

Opening /proc/modules: no such file or directory

but /proc/modules exist and work also, so it is more or less cosmetical
