I just got the a new mobo from Gigabyte, the K8NSNXP. Now it has 2 network adaptors but neither one works. I was wondering if this is a driver problem or if the mobo is bad? If it is a driver problem where is there a good place to get suse drivers. The Gigabye website does not have any drivers for linux computers. Any comments? Thanks,

Justin

Thanks, I didn't realize that the motherboard manufacture didn't put these type of files out. Thanks a million,

I am missing something big. I have installed the file NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0233.suse80.i386.rpm, Now I am tring to get the net to work and I went into yast, then networking, then lan browsing. From there i clicked Guided LISa Setup. Once I click that is says "No network interface card was found on your system". Why is this still happening? Are my drivers still not up to date. I just updated them 5 min ago. Where am I going wrong? Thanks,

make sure your onboard nic is enabled in bios....

if it is, and it is still not showing up

lets see if the kernel can see it:
run 'dmesg | grep xxx' , where 'xxx' is an identifier for your specific chipset.. I.E. Glan, gigabit, 10/100/1000 etc...

if your kernel can see the nic, configuring it should be as simple as running a simple 'ifconfig eth0 up && dhclient'

if it can't see the nic, it may be possible that your kernel is not looking in the right places .. ... ... .. try to see if there is anything on google with a similar situation.

good luck

ok when i do a ifconfig, eth0 or eth1 do not show up. I have configured each of them so that ones ip addy is 10.200.13.11 and 10.200.13.12 YET, they do not show up in ifconfig? Is there a step I need to do to make them show up in ifconfig. When I go into yast and click yast2 modules then click network/basic then network card configuration, it shows both eth0 and eth1 with the correct ip addy's. How do I make them show up under ifconfig? Thanks,

Also when i do a ifconfig eth0 or ifconfig eth1, it says, eth0: error fetching interface information: Device not found. Does this help at all?
