Description of problem:
installer doesn't detect network module to load for abit nv7m nforce.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install product

Actual Results:  I would have expected the network card to be detected.
Unfortunately I'm not sure if the network card is supported. My understanding is
that a realtek network card (either 8129 or 8139??) should work for the nforce
chipset, but neither module would load.

Expected Results:  one of the realtek drivers to support the nforce ethernet device.

Or clarity on the support of the nforce ethernet device.

Could you get lspci output for this card?
Comment 2 Alan Santos 2002-08-28 20:58:16 EDT
ls pci:

00:04.0 Ethernet Controller: nVidia Corporation: Unknown Device 01c3 (rev c2)
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2002-08-30 19:11:14 EDT
Well, if neither module loads, we can't really map the nForce to those drivers.
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-02 16:03:00 EDT
Assigning to kernel since this appears to be a nForce driver issue.
Comment 5 Arjan van de Ven 2002-10-03 06:09:16 EDT
nforce ethernet isn't supported; nvidia MAY have a binary only kernel module for
it though. Most vendors however put ANOTHER ethernet chip on the motherboard
which is a 8139
