The only change in network area was the inclusion of a user contributed b44.o module. What module were you using in v3.1?

Hi Roberts,

I work with an recent industrial biscuit PC board with a standard Realtek RTL-8139 controller.

During boot processus with DSL3.2 hdinstall, after autocofiguring no eth0 is seen !

If i execute lspci , i see the controler.

root@box:/home/dsl# lspci
0000:00:00.0 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8605 [ProSavage PM133]
0000:00:01.0 PCI bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8605 [PM133 AGP]
0000:00:07.0 ISA bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C686 [Apollo Super South] (rev 40)
0000:00:07.1 IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C586A/B/VT82C686/A/B/VT823x/A/C PIPC Bus Master IDE (rev
0000:00:07.2 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82xxxxx UHCI USB 1.1 Controller (rev 1a)
0000:00:07.4 Bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C686 [Apollo Super ACPI] (rev 40)
0000:00:07.5 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C686 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 50)
0000:00:12.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. 86C380 [ProSavageDDR K4M266] (rev 02)

If i execute lsmod , no trace of the module (controler).

If i execute  modprobe , i get this error message :

root@box:/home/dsl# modprobe 8139too
/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/net/b44.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
     You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/net/b44.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/net/b44.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/net/b44.o: insmod 8139too failed

Important , i get always this error when i make the hdinstall :

se [G]rub MBR or [L]ilo Active Partition? (g/l): l
Setting up boot loader (LILO) into the active partition..
/usr/sbin/dsl-installboot: line 181:  1021 Segmentation fault      /usr/sbin/genliloconf "$TARGET" "$TARGET" "hda=scsi hdb=scsi hdc=scsi hdd=scsi hde=scsi hdf=scsi hdg=scsi hdh=scsi apm=power-off nomce noapic" "$BKERNEL" $INITRD
Warning: '/proc/partitions' does not exist, disk scan bypassed
Added dsl *
The boot installation process is finished.

I look at for /etc/lilo.conf , it seems to be correct.

I have replaced all the /boot directory  of my DSL3.2 with the /boot of an OK DSL3.01 hdinstall, but no success after reboot,
my network card is still not seen ?

Is anybody has the same problem ?

Thanks a lot for your help !

phiphi: temporary workaround would be to copy over b44.o from dsl v3.1 or before, and overwrite the one in dsl v3.2 (or just use "insmod /path/to/b44.o" )

I replace as your say, b44.o module with DSL3.01 one, but no success , same error with modprobe 8139too after reboot.

Strange !!!

I've just tested DSL v3.2: What about the "must be superuser to umount" problem?

Maybe having a bug/problem tracker will help to improve DSL.
