Description cealmeida 2000-05-03 10:36:43 UTC
I've upgraded from 6.1 to 6.2.
I have a ne_2K-pci NIC
When using 6.1, the network card works fine and ifconfig reports lo and
When using 6.2 ifconfig only shows lo
I've tried Netconfig and Linuxconf but I can't ping anything except
localhost: "Network unreachable"
I've checked /proc/pci and the board is present.

Thanks in advance

This I assume is a module? I've always had problems like that and typically it's
almost always configuration.  Check your /etc/modules.conf and make sure the
correct alias for your driver is present.  If it is then try using modprobe to
load the driver and also try depmod -a to make sure it is looking in the right
place for you modules.  If it is searching through a directory of older modules
you should get errors about undefined symbols etc from depmod -a.

The problem was dued to an incomplete upgrade.
upload.log had a error message about the kernel upgrage from 2.12 to 2.14-0.5
I upgraded to 2.2.14-12 and eth0 startted working.
Thanks for your help.
