RH7.x modules wont load for Adaptec duralan NIC at boot
Posted on 2001-07-17
I have a server running redhat 7.0 and 7.1 (i switch between the 2) and in either version i can't get the NIC driver modules to load buring bootup. This causes my networking to respond in a manner such as:
eth0 delaying initialization [FAILED]
if after boot up i manually insmod the driver module it will load fine and then i can start my network and everything works fine... but during bootup it WILL NOT LOAD arrggh
i have the module in :
and this line in my /etc/modules.conf
alias eth0 starfire
as far as i can tell i have everything setup correctly and the driver does work fine.. but it wont load the module automatically.
this might or might not have happened after failing out the network connection (we do stress testing here) so could it be a case of a file reporting the driver not working and thus not loading it anymore?
there are two modules that need to be loaded
both of these are listed in /etc/modules.conf and in the appropriate dir (as listed above)
let me know what you think....
