RTL8139 SMC1211TX init_module error
Sun Jan 9 23:39:07 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,
ps. this mail might have been sent twice. If so, I'm very sorry.
