SMC EZ Card 10/100 Not Properly Recognized
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:28:54 EDT
Standard install fails to bring up the network configuration screen even though an SMC EZ Card 10/100 (SMC 1211TX) is
present and operational. Partial recognition of the card has taken place, because the booted system does
show an entry in modules.conf for this card: alias eth0 rtl8139. Workaround is to use linuxconf and manually

What kind of install did you do?
Install: Booted DOS w/CD Driver -ran autoboot - when prompted, loaded driver disk, selected AHA152x and entered
parameters=0x340, 10, then ran the usual graphical install...
Is this an ISA NIC?
It is PCI.
Brock can you try to reproduce this please?
hmmm ... I was able to install properly with this card, it was correctly
autoprobed by the installer, and loaded the rtl8139 module ... are you able to
properly detect this card using the bootnet.img linux boot floppy ...?
If I recall (it's been a month or so), the card was properly detected, but for some reason the IP configuration interface
was never invoked...
