Description sundog32 1999-10-24 16:11:34 UTC
This is a multi issue problem.autoprobe did not find my 3c509 card in my machine so I could not configure it from install. config mode to manual and the enable toggle is set I set io port at 0x300 irq at 5 name as lupis02.interesect.com alias as lupis02 IP address 192.168.1.1 netmask = 255.255.255.0 net device to eth0 kernal module 3c509 I then completed the install and used linux to add it as eth0 in as adapter 1 in the hosts section of networking. when I reboot I get a message in the log that there was an error from /lib/modules/2.2.5.-15/net/3c509.o invalid parameter io if I remove the configuration from adapter 1 and issue a modprobe 3c509 then a modprobe 3c509 io=300 irq=5 and then ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 then connection works and comes up. I get a similar problem if I do it through control-panel when I look in then kernal daeomn configuration in control panel I see entries for 3c509 and for eth0 when I install from linuxconfig. when I do it manually I only see an entry for eth0 lsmod shows 3c509 being loaded after a manual configuration. ifconfig shows eth0 as being correct after the manual install as well. As a result I suspect that there may be a bug in linuxconf in setting the io parameter for 3c509

Can you please post the conf.modules file that is being created for you?

Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore.
