ethernet on the a7n8x

bendlightbendlight Member Posts: 2
I have red hat 9 installed on my computer but it does not seem to recognize the integrated ethernet. I found a rpm at the asus website and installed, but cannot get the card to work still. I think it is still not recognizing the ethernet. If I try to reinstall it says that the rpm is already installed. Can anyone help me with this? The rpm was NVIDIA_nforce......rpm

    It's hard to guess what the problem might be since we can't see what's going on exactly with your system. A couple things to try.
    Become root and run
    ifconfig
    This will give you your device like "eth0" and it's configuration. You want to make sure it has the correct IP addess. If it does, then try pinging yahoo or some other server. If you can ping a server, then it's set up. If you can't, then you might need to shut your connection off for the card and start it back up using
    ifconfig eth0 down
    ifconfig eth0 up

    Then try pinging again. If that doesn't work, then you want to set up dhcpcd on your machine to boot. Actually, you should have this set anyway, unless you have a static IP. There are documents on doing this on tldp.org

    ifconfig doesn't work on my computer I recieve the message command not found as root. I have been screwing with it for another day now and I get a failure at boot up says nvnet doesn't appear to be present. If I reinstall says it is already installed. If I query says it is not installed. If I try to remove says it is not installed.

    for nvnet you might want to go to nvidia's site and look for nforce linux drivers. i haven't checked in a long time, but yu might get a rpm for the rh9 stock kernel - otherwise you need to get the sources and compile the module wrapper yourself. since it is a kernel module, you want to make sure that the asus rpm you downloaded matches your particular kernel, otherwise it will not load.

    anyway, looking at your other post, it [italic]is[/italic] strange - without ifconfig/ifup/ifdown/etc you won't be doing much in terms of networking. if they are really missing, go find the relevant rmp's and install them - and the init scripts for network/internet, too.
