I'm trying out Arch on an old Dell Dimension 2100. I get the error SIOCADDRT:File exists on startup and I assume this is because I did not load my NIC module. I am having the hardest time finding it though. Does anyone know what it is or how I can find it?
Well, hmmm...a lot of those old Dells have either intel or 3Com ethernet cards. Do you know which card it has? Modules: e100 or eepro100 for intel...It's late and I can't think what the module would be for 3Com.
If you have lshwd installed, try running it:
If not, for 3com, you can try these (I don't know which one):
If you know your card model, try to google.
I found the card. Its a pulse H1012. Apparently its the same as some other intel card so I loaded the eepro100 module which reportedly works with this card too. Still no dice.
give? After loading the eepro100 module..
