Hi there
I'm at this stage of instalation:

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/2006.1/handbook-hppa.xml?part=1&chap=7

So I get:

(chroot) root@livecd #

I Have this NIC in my server:

http://hwdb.parisc-linux.org:80/view.php?type=padevice&name=UL%20350%20Core%20LAN%20%28802.3%29

Unfortunately it's not working at all.

ifconfig eth0 says: Device not found

Google says that my drivers (Lasi_82596) should be compiled into kernel by default.

lsmod says:

reiserfs
usb_storage

There is no such thing as linux directory in /usr/src - the directory is empty.


I don't know how to procede with installation.

PLease help me make my NIC working.

Cheers

When I do this:

livecd modules # modprobe lasi_82596

I have this error:

lasi_82596: falsely claims to have parameter debug
FATAL: Error inserting lasi_82596 (/lib/modules/2.6.16.18-pa11-livecd32/kernel/drivers/net/lasi_82596.ko):Invalid argument

Any Ideas what's wrong ?

Cheers

Not much help, but I´m using that module on my K260, and loaded it during installation without the error messages yo are seeing.
It was a while since I installed the machine (I think 2006.0) but I have upgraded the kernel multiple times without problems.

Which installcd version are you using?, if it is a newer version then mine I could download it and test it on my machine, if it works here
I guess it it is a hardware related problem, or compatibility problem.

The problem described is an error in some versions of the Linux kernel. The driver works without any problems when being compiled-in, but the module fails to load. Fortunately the module can befixed with the tools on the installcd. The problem has been solved here, where the solution is decsribed as
Code:
xxd /lib/modules/2.6.16.18-pa11-livecd32/kernel/drivers/net/lasi_82596.ko | \
 sed -e 's/0004960: 6465 6275 6700 0000 0000/0004960: 6935 3936 5f64 6562 7567/' | \
 xxd -r > /tmp/lasi_82596.ko.

insmod /tmp/lasi_82596.ko

This should solve the problem (tested on a 5 CPU K370)

Edit: removed a newline from the code to make it less easy to misunderstand

xdd does hex dumps from files or converts hex dumps to files, the program should be present on Gentoo installCDs.
