NIC Card Problems on Red Hat 9.0
Posted on 2004-09-01
I am having some problems getting NIC cards to work on Linux. Here is the story I have about 8 PCs in which I have installed Red Hat 9.0. I have three diffrent kinds of NIC cards. Every different type of NIC card has worked properly on at least one type of machine.
Here is what happens it finds the NIC card but calls it Eth1 instead of Eth0 (there is only one NIC on each machine) I have been deleted the NIC from the Networking applet and rebooting. This has worked on one machine but two of them are still not working.
On both of the machines with the problem Kudzu is not prompting me to configure a NIC card at bootup (after I delete it from the Networking Devices Applet). And it does not try to start up the NIC card at bootup either. I guess my question is how do I totally get rid of the NIC card settings so Kudzu will work properly or is their a way for me to manually set this up.
When I do an ifconfig up I get an error that the device is not found. Also one of the errors is "Determining IP Information for etho:1 SIOCSIFFLAGS cannot assign requested address failed.
Obvioulsy when I do an ifconfig I am not getting a DHCP address. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated
