I just cannot make this card work. I have spent the better part of my day on it.
This is a 2 port 10/100 Adaptec ANA-6922A card.
As I understand, this card is supposed to work with the Starfire driver.
However, the card is NOT being detected.
This is my lspci output:
[root@localhost root]# lspci

And this is what happens when I modprobe starfire:
[root@localhost root]# modprobe starfire
/lib/modules/2.4.21/kernel/drivers/net/starfire.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
/lib/modules/2.4.21/kernel/drivers/net/starfire.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.21/kernel/drivers/net/starfire.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.21/kernel/drivers/net/starfire.o: insmod starfire failed
I did download and compile the newest netdrivers, but still...no cigar.
Anybody else out there has gotten this card to work?
Thank you,
