Hi. I've recently got the 2.6.2 stable build compiled rather successfully, except for the ethernet support.
I've got a RTL8139 compatable card in a pci slot.
I've enabled all there is to enable for ethernet support under the networking section(imho), left out all unnecessary ones like FDDI or token ring etc. I've enabled almost all options with PCI as well.
My previous stock kernel 2.4.2-08 from a redhat 9 install had it working perfectly. but no modules were loaded; they seem to be built in.
any ideas? i can modprobe 8139too.ko but eth0 refuses to get an ip (as it would haf in my old kernel) when i do an ifup. i've tried compiling it into the kernel as well but no luck.
