Hello,

I have a atheros card in my system.
So in the kernel I enabled the athl1e module.
modprobe ath1e does not give a error message.

But now ifconfig does not show anything.
And when I do dhcpcd eth0 I see this message :

interface eth0 not found or is invalid.

Anyone a idea how to solve it.

Use `ifconfig -a` or `ip link show` to include inactive interfaces.

Thanks for the tip.

ifconfig -a only shows lo
ip link show gives a command not found error.

I found it myself.

I needed the atl1c driver instead of the atc1e driver.
