Now the problem is that for the life of me I cannot get the onboard NIC to
work with the ctx kernel.
The nic was working fine, i just installed the rpm and that installed the
When I install the new kernel and try to reinstall teh rpm, or source rpm,
or even straigth from the source i get problems.
Now why does this not work?
Anyone I am despirate!
I'm not a kernel expert but I've been in your situation before.
I had the same problem with SIS network cards.
The pre compiled kernel doen't have very many nic drivers either compiled
in or set to load as modules, hence you're problem.
The fix is to get the kernel source, patch it, create your .config with
your own nic drivers included, and recompile.
It's worked for me several times in the past but I still can't get ext3
working on my own system despite the fact that I didn't mess with those
settings in any of the kernel builds in the past. (That's my own personal
unresolved bug btw :-))
