PCI ethernet card setup
Posted on 1998-07-31
Hi, I just finished installing slackware linux 1.2.13,
and XFree86 3.1.2. I am trying to configure my ethernet
card so that I can see our local network. Details:
card : PCI Ethernet DECchip 21040 Based Adapter
irq : 09
i/o : FC80h-FCFFh
Windows 95 detects and configures the card , and the
above details are from the device manager.
When I start up linux, during the boot I get messages
SIOCSIFADDR : No such device
SIOCSIFBRDADDR : No such device
I have looked in /dev , and there is
no entry for eth0, eth1 etc , or anything
denoting an ethernet card. Is there any way
of forcing linux to find my card ?
Also, in a file called pci , the card is listed
there , meaning that linux can see it ??
So, where have I gone wrong ? Any ideas
would be greatly appreciated.
