Hi All,
I am trying to migrate to 2.6 on my alpha 255. It works well with the 2.4 kernel, but when i boot into the compiled 2.6 kernel eth0 doesn't connect to the internet.

It seems that eth0 is connected to the outside world in kernel 2.4, and when kernel 2.6 is booted eth0 becomes eth1.

Using 2.4 kernel:
Code:
Sep 17 19:25:43 linux eth0: DE434/5 at 0x8800 (PCI bus 0, device 14), h/w address 00:00:f8:22:dd:65,
Sep 17 19:25:43 linux and requires IRQ15 (provided by PCI BIOS).
Sep 17 19:25:43 linux de4x5.c:V0.546 2001/02/22 davies@maniac.ultranet.com
Sep 17 19:25:43 linux Linux Tulip driver version 0.9.15-pre12 (Aug 9, 2002)

Sep 17 19:25:43 linux 8139too Fast Ethernet driver 0.9.26
Sep 17 19:25:43 linux eth1: RealTek RTL8139 Fast Ethernet at 0xfffffc0301209000, 00:08:a1:19:be:f7, IRQ 14
Sep 17 19:25:43 linux eth1:  Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8139C'


using 2.6 kernel
Code:
Sep 17 18:29:07 linux 8139too Fast Ethernet driver 0.9.27
Sep 17 18:29:07 linux eth0: RealTek RTL8139 at 0xfffffc0301209000, 00:08:a1:19:be:f7, IRQ 14
Sep 17 18:29:07 linux eth0:  Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8139C'

Sep 17 18:29:07 linux de2104x PCI Ethernet driver v0.7 (Mar 17, 2004)
Sep 17 18:29:07 linux eth1: 21040 at 0xfffffc030120a000, 00:00:f8:22:dd:65, IRQ 15


is it possible to make eth0 be the same in both 2.4 and 2.6?

thanks.

load both modules in the same order in both kernels.
So:
compile the drivers as modules in the kernel then edit /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 and /etc/modules.autload.d/kernel-2.4 and add the modules in the same order:
first realtek, then tulip or the other way around.
The kernel will assign eth0 to the first module loaded.
