sk98lin has been replaced with skge

if skge is to replace sk98lin, why doesn't it provide the network connection?
Comment 3 John W. Linville 2006-07-05 13:50:53 EDT
Edit /etc/modules.conf, replacing all instances of "sk98lin" with "skge".  
Then, reboot.  Does that help?

The file I edited on my FC4 system is /etc/modprobe.conf.  That worked.
Thanks and sorry I didn't pick up on this in comment#1.

Yes, forgive my typo.  It sounds like you have things working.

I'm going to call this WONTFIX since it is really an sk98lin problem, and that 
driver basically is unsupported upstream.
