SDB:The Network Card SiS900 Cannot Be Configured

Şuraya atla: kullan, ara


Version: 8.1

Symptom

You have setup your network card or on-board network chip with YaST2, but no network or DSL connection can be established.
When booting your system, the message: eth0 ifup: Could not get a valid interface name: -> skipped
or: eth0:Error EEPROM read 0
is displayed.

Cause

A revision of this chipset (rev 91) could not be configured with the kernel included on the CDs.
This revision can only be supported after some changes have been performed in the kernel.

Solution

First make sure that the chipset's revision is actually 91.
For this purpose, execute the following commands in a console:

su -
your_root_password 
hwinfo --network_ctrl

The displayed output is similar to:

20: PCI 04.0: 0200 Ethernet controller
  [Created at pci.65]
  Unique ID: 8otl.uF4U5g2jiXA
  Hardware Class: network
  Model: "Micro-star International SiS900 10/100 Ethernet"
  Vendor: pci 0x1039 "Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS]"
  Device: pci 0x0900 "SiS900 10/100 Ethernet"
  SubVendor: pci 0x1462 "Micro-star International Co Ltd"
  SubDevice: pci 0x0900
  Revision: 0x91
  I/O Ports: 0xbc00-0xbcff (rw)
  Memory Range: 0xe0125000-??? (rw,non-prefetchable)
  IRQ: 3 (no events)
  Driver Info #0:
    Driver Status: sis900 is not active
    Driver Activation Cmd: "insmod sis900"
  Config Status: cfg=yes, avail=yes, need=no

The line 'Revision' displays the revision number, which is 0x91 in this example.

If this is also the case in your system, install the current kernel from our ftp server.
