RTL8139 SMC1211TX init_module error
Sun Jan 9 23:24:32 2000
hello fellow list-mates,
I am new to this list, and I come with a problem, as most do. It may
be common. Please help. Here is my rundown of the problem as I have
My setup is as follows,
SMC 1211TX PCI card
redhat 6.0 (hedwig)
kernel 2.2.5-15 (original)
my problem is as follows.
I can compile the source file flawlessly. no output. Same can be said
for the test source found on the website.
My problem surfaces when i try to insmod the object.
# insmod rtl.o
rtl.o: init_module: Device or resource busy
so i go and check the code. line 1428:
hmm... it must be getting an error in that sub.
so test with:
return 0 /* rtl8139_probe(0) */ ;
and it insmod's fine.
so obviously its not finding the card.
I do not have a network hooked up to the card, but does that matter?
when i have the hacked module insmod'ed, i try to activate it as eth1
with no luck. Its obviously not finding a card.
so basically, there is something wrong when it goes to detect the SMC
1211TX card. I scan the webpage for errata, and the card is very well
listed under compatible cards: " SMC 1211TX (relabeled RTL8139) "
but the second part of that quote makes me wonder. do i need to
relabel the card to RTL8139 somehow? If so, how? jumper settings?
ugh. I'm very frustrated.
All help would be greatly appreciated,
