The original system works fine, with other NIC cards in it. Again, I have very little experience with Linux. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author’s experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. Then restart your computer, and do an “ifconfig” again. If you don’t see 3c59x in there, try “modprobe 3c59x”. Its alright man, we’re all friends here

I added the interface and configured in the netcfg utility. I’m not exactly a noob, but I don’t know enough to make a call like that.

If you see this message but the driver continues to function normally, the message can probably be ignored. As a side note, netconfig detected the card during installation, but not afterwards while the system is running normally.

So by uncommenting the lines in rc. Ok, I’ve rooted around with the search page for about an hour now, and now its time to post Knoppix has great hardware detection in it. Join the Justlinux 39c05tx home team! Thanks all and 3c950tx night. Few of us will do as much for our fellow man as he has done. If you have never compiled a custom kernel before you should give it a shot I did ifconfig eth0 up.


You may have to go looking for it including on a diskette or from 3Com’s site. I bought a 3com 3ctx NIC.

New to Linux, Need help with NIC – 3COM 3c905-tx

For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. Find More Posts by zsejk.

Note that this condition only occurs when warm booting from another operating system. For whatever the reason, the ‘MII available’ bit in the media options register on this particular equipment is not set, even though it should be the 3cTX always uses an external PHY transceiver. If you see this message at boot time and the driver fails to attach the device as a network interface, you will have to perform second warm boot to have the device properly configured.

Yeah, if you’re setting out to learn linux networking then you’ll probably be happier in a graphical environment. As for the nic, list all the modules currently loaded with “lsmod”. I removed the 3c, and installed another one, to make sure it wasn’t the card. And like I said, I have the exact same problem at work, I have a box set up in a similar fassion, again with a 3Com card, though I can’t remember if its a or a Team Join Now! Received PCI bus errors sorry don’t have exact output, was in a rush to get the system back up and running.


The driver module for your card in not contained in the default bare. It would be nice if Red Hat could fix this kernel issue, and provide new ISOs with an updated kernel so this can be cleanly installed on systems with 3cTX cards.

MII transceiver found at address 24, status Attachments Terms of Use Add an attachment proposed patch, testcase, etc. Try “modprobe 3c59x”, “ifconfig eth0 up”, and “dhcpcd”.

Then restart your computer, and do an “ifconfig” again. You may have to register before you can post: But let me test it. Comment 11 Neil Horman On and old system try vecterslackor debian 3c59x is the module I think for that card. The time now is You are currently viewing LQ as a guest.
