I have the VT6103 chipset which I think should have no problem... Now after I "make" and "make install"... I can see the message



/usr/sbin/install -f /kernel/drv -m 755 -u root -g sys i386/rh
new owner is root
i386/rh installed as /kernel/drv/rh


but when I try to do


# ifconfig rh0 plumb 192.168.0.1 up



it would say "No such file or directory". Please help... Suggestions are welcome... Thanks...

You still need to start the driver probably. type "modload rh" or
"modload drv/rh". If after a reboot, the driver is not automatically
started, then you need to add "forceload drv/rh" to the /etc/system file.

Thank you for your reply, here's what happened...

"modload drv/rh".


I got an error message saying...

"can't load module: no such device or address"


If after a reboot, the driver is not automatically
started, then you need to add "forceload drv/rh" to the /etc/system file.



was that really "forceload drv/rh" and not "forceload: drv/rh"? I tried "forceload: drv/rh" then rebooted but nothing happened... At startup it even shows "forceload of drv/rh failed".
