asterisk@home eth0 device not found
Posted on 2005-03-24
I burned the asterisk@home 0.6 ISO image to CD and installed it on my new Shuttle XPC SN41G2V3 Duron system.
Everything seems to have worked fine except that it doesn't recognize eth0. If I do "ifconfig eth0" it says:
eth0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
If I run the command "lspci", one of the lines says:
00:04.0 Bridge: nVidia Corporation MCP2A Ethernet Controller (rev a3)
When I plug the ethernet cable from my router to the machine, no light lights up for that port.
I've checked the BIOS and I do have the on board ethernet enabled.
So, what is the problem here? Does Linux not support this particular ethernet controller? What can I do to make it work?
