View Full Version : Ethernet Card Not Recognized After Fedora Install

6th August 2004, 10:43 PM

I just installed Fedora from scratch on a brand new hp server and now I can't set up an ethernet connection. Although the card is listed, when I try to activate it, I get this error:

3c501 device eth0:1 does not seam to be present, delaying initialization.

From what I'm seeing on other forums, it looks like a kernel update is in store. So I grabbed linux 2.6.7 and ran the

make menuconfig

and then: 2make && make modules_install

Oops, Posted too soon. As I was saying. I get the same error!!!!!!!!!!!

"3c501 device eth0:1 does not seam to be present, delaying initialization."

What is the deal?

I must say, in Windows and Mac, you can just download a freakin' driver and be done w/ it.

Any ideers from here?
