Network card Installation problem
« on: January 14, 2005, 10:01:55 AM »
Hi team,

I have intel original 865 chipset based system. When i install linux it does'nt detect network card. If windows xp is installed on the same hardware it shows "Intel(R) Pro/1000 CT Network Connection" as network adapter. I have downloaded driver for linux but it didn't work. PLEASE HELP ME.

your card has been detected by OS, and I think you are not able to configure it !

How you know it is not detected ?

I have downloaded this card drivers from internet e1000-4.3.15.tar.gz  & extracted  it with command
#tar -xvzf e1000-4.3.15.tar.gz
after that
#cd e1000-4.3.15
#make
#make install
till this pt it works but after that when i tried to install modules by giving command:
#insmod e1000
It gives error like this
/usr/lib/kernel/e1000.o no such file & directory

so your driver is not installed yet ! you can also try RPM http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/PLD/dists/ra/updates/security/i386/kernel-net-e1000-4.3.15-4@2.2.25_2.i386.html

I think you can copy the modules manually to the module directory if they are created locally on that directory by make install

At last problem was solved, what i downloaded from net was the file "e1000-4.3.15.tar.gz" and was not working and then I tried to find the Motherboard drivers cd . The CD contains a file   "e1000-5..0.43.tar.gz" and I was able to successfully install it . It works now.
