NIC initialization during kernel loading
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
While the kernel loads there is a line:
device eth0 delayed initialization [Failed]
This creates a lack of network connection. The module
loaded is the 3c59x for a 3com NIC.
The installation was an upgrade from existing install(6.0)
in which the NIC loaded properly. Might be caused by an
autodetecting/probing of the device to specify the line
passed to the kernel?
What does /etc/conf.modules look like?

alias eth0 3c59x
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
pre-install pcmcia_core /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia start
options 3c59x irq=11
What happens if you do 'modprobe 3c59x' from the command line?

returns back with "can't locate module 3c59x"
Is this module missing from the kernel that is installed with 6.1, I
need to check the kernel version.

The 3c59x module is included with 6.1.
This sounds like a corrupted install. Closing it in the absence of other info
