Comment 7 Dan Gennidakis Having a problem logging in? The 3cB adapters have built-in autonegotiation logic mapped onto the MII for compatibility with previous drivers. But, I’ve decided I want to learn it, inside and out I can just see all the Linux gurus scoffing So, I’ve setup an old computer Pentium I era , and have decided to try out different Linux distributions — currently on Turbo Linux 6. The onboard network card was from a very new Intel board and was not directly supported by the kernel. Visit us at linuxn00b on irc. For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig 8.

Current kernel is 2. Some commands issued to the 3c90x ASIC take time to complete: The error message posted inis one of two messages I saw.

I only installed the first CD, the second CD of linyx has nothing really intresting to me, so I didn’t install any of it. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own. If you power down your system prior to booting FreeBSD, the card should be configured correctly.

[SOLVED] Network driver issue – 3Com 3cTX

Recompiling your kernel will probably still solve the problem if you do it correctly, but it would probably 3c905rx be necessary if you could find out why it was looking for the wrong dependency file in the first 3c90t5x. Slackware This Forum is for the discussion of Slackware Linux. Is there an OS that recognizes the 3com 3ctx, so I don’t have to do a lot of configuring? They all worked without any problems.

Is ifconfig not showing it either???

Browse Requests Reports Product Dashboard. Can’t get 3C to work? Comment 6 Dan Gennidakis The problem appears to be with Kudzu vers above 0. If that now shows your card, cheer for a while, and run “netconfig” to set it up for use with DHCP. I can do more testing or even post the card to someone if that helps.

It is probably safe to ignore them. Yeah, if you’re setting out to learn linux networking then you’ll probably 3c90t5x happier in a graphical environment.

The driver module for your card in not contained in the default bare. Join Date Feb Location St.

slackware and my 3cTX

I don’t believe I could get the machine to recognize either of them with a default kernel Note that registered members see fewer ads, and ContentLink is completely disabled once you log in. I placed a Netgear FA card into the system, and downloaded vanilla kernel 2.


USA Posts Most live cd’s require mb of ram to work. Ok, I’ve rooted around with the search page for about an hour now, and now its time to post The driver tries to detect this condition and bring the adapter back to the D0 full power state, but this may not be enough to return the driver to a fully operational condition.

And since I’ve been working on this today, I have in fact reinstalled Slackware today. If for example, I try to ping out eth0 3cit would send packets, you’d see nothing come out the NIC card, and the ping tool would report destination host unreachable.

Note that the baseTX media type is only available if supported by the adapter. Those can be “kinda scary” for a longtime win user. Join the Justlinux folding home team!
