SubjectCorrect ether= parameters for 8139too (RealTek 8139) ?
Date
Hi,
My apologies for the major spam here but this problem is really causing me havoc :)

Basically my machine has 2xIntel eepro onboard NICs and 1 RealTek 8139 PCI NIC.
My problem is that I am unable to force the RealTek Card register as a specific device namely eth2 - it always decides to register itself as eth0.


Let's take my previous configuration.
Kernel Version : 2.4.17
Let's assume that modules e100 have not been compiled (source Intel who so not support these drivers to be built into the kernel)

/etc/modules.conf

alias eth0 e100
alias eth1 e100
alias eth2 8139too

If for whatever reason eth0/1 do not come up eg unresolved symbol/module not installed… The RealTek (8139too) registers itself as eth0 regardless of what options I give eth2…. So I decided to compile 8139too into the kernel in order to parse ether= parameters to it via LILO.

Current Configuration
Kernel Version : 2.4.17 (with 8139too built in)

/etc/modules.conf

alias eth0 e100
alias eth1 e100
##alias eth2 8139too (not needed obviously)

No matter what ether= parameters I parse to the kernel at boot time the RealTek card is registered as eth0 :(
So I ended up trying to debug 8139too and recomped it.

Can anyone please indicate what the correct ether= parameters I should be parsing to the kernel in order to register the card to eth2 or even a hack for 8139too.c ?

Here's as much data as I can give you….
Many thanks in advance,
Shaf

>From 8139too.c
Much code comes from Donald Becker's rtl8139.c driver,
versions 1.13 and older. This driver was originally based
on rtl8139.c version 1.07. Header of rtl8139.c version 1.13:

DPRINTK("about to register device named %s (%p)...\n", dev->name, dev);
i = register_netdev (dev);
