I recently installed an ISA NE2000 into a Pentium II that contained an Intel
eepro100. I got both cards going, got the cable modem connected to the ne,
and ran dhcpcd. Everything was working fine.
After a reboot, I have two problems. One is that neither of the NIC's is
brought up at startup, despite these lines in /etc/conf.modules:
alias eth0 eepro100
alias eth1 ne
options ne io=0x240 irq=3
I know that the 8390 module is required to use the ne, so I am suspecting
that it has to be inserted into this file for the ne to be brought up
successfully, maybe appended to the second line? However, this still doesn't
explain the eepro100 not being loaded in.
My second problem is that once I do insert the modules manually, I can
configure both cards and see the network, but I can't get dhcpcd to assign
the ne's IP address. After running it:
dhcpcd -h <hostname> interface eth1
it seems to run and exit (or fork(), whatever it does) successfully, but
checking ifconfig shows the interface remains unchanged. Mind you, this
command worked flawlessly previously.
I would appreciate any help at all on this matter.
