Device eth0 issue

Hi,

I have just installed RHEL 5.4 on a BL430c-class server and I am attempting to connect to the network only when I try and start eth0, I get the following error?

"Bringing up Interface eth0: hp device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization."

I am using a HP Ethernet Pass Thru Module on the back of my enclosure to connect.

R,
D.

It means what it says, it doesn't see an eth0 device.

What does ls /sys/class/net show?

Only displays "lo" and "sit0".

I have tried adding the eth0 config using system-config-network but the HP NIC that I use does not appear to be listed on the list of interface devices?

Perhaps you need to install the correct module/driver in order for it to load correctly.

I have located the following driver but not I think I may not be running the correct rpm command for install it:

# rpm -iv hp-e1000-8.0.25-1.src.rpm

error: cannot create %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES

Any idea on how I can install a .src rpm package?

---------- Post updated at 11:42 AM ---------- Previous update was at 09:42 AM ----------

Ok, I have just created the dir that was appently missing and have ran a "make install" against the src rpm and it has requested additional kernel-devel packages.

I have mounted my install DVD and located these rpm's but it will not install, giving the error that it is not an RPM package. Is there any way to install these packages from the install DVD or should I try and source them elsewhere?

R,
D.

you don't want the src rpm, you'd probably be better off with the binaries.

If you do wish to use the src rpm, you don't run make install, you run rpmbuild or rpm --rebuild, depending on the distribution

I believe the arguments passed would be -ba.

That would create the rpm you would use

However, the e1000 is a very well supported card and should not need drivers.

Run this command:


Code:
lspci -vv | grep -i net

That will tell you what device you need to install the drivers for

Ok I am using RHEL 5.4 so there is no "rpmbuild / --rebuild".

I created a repo from my DVD and managed to install the necessary packages.

So I have run a "make install" on the e1000 src dir and all seem good until I try and include/add the module I get the following error:

insmod: error inserting <path_to_e1000.ko>: -1 Invalid module format

Has anybody seen this before or know what the problem might be?
