Subject: 2.6.20 trouble with Nvidia MCP51 Ethernet Controller
Date: Wed, 14 Feb 2007 17:26:20 -0500 (EST)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <Pine.LNX.4.64.0702141719070.3884@mtl.rackplans.net> (raw)

hello,

I just got a new motherboard with an MCP51. The kernel detects it but then 
I have no eth0 device.

from lspci:
00:14.0 Bridge: nVidia Corporation MCP51 Ethernet Controller (rev a3)

dmesg shows:
forcedeth.c: Reverse Engineered nForce ethernet driver. Version 0.59.
ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [APCH] enabled at IRQ 23
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:14.0[A] -> Link [APCH] -> GSI 23 (level, low) 
-> IRQ 23
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:14.0 to 64
forcedeth: using HIGHDMA
eth0: forcedeth.c: subsystem: 01043:816a bound to 0000:00:14.0

mgerhard:~# ifup eth0
