just tried to install Intel's e1000e driver (e1000e-0.5.18.3.tar.gz) for two onboard Intel 82574L GbE NIC's on the frugal install I've got running with the toram option.
Did "tar zxf e1000e-0.5.18.3.tar.gz", followed by "cd e1000e-0.5.18.3/src/".
Then the "make install" command, but the "make" command is not recognized...
Before someone mentiones it, I know there's already an e1000 driver present in DSL (read that somewhere on the forum), but according to Intel I have to use the e1000e driver, which I can't get installed.
So tried the already present e1000 driver anyway with "sudo modprobe e1000", get something like this:
/lib/modules/2.4.31/kernel/drivers/net/e1000/e1000.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/2.4.31/kernel/drivers/net/e1000/e1000.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.31/kernel/drivers/net/e1000/e1000.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.31/kernel/drivers/net/e1000/e1000.o: insmod e1000 failed
Any idea how to get both NIC's working?
