[linux-dell-laptops] Re: No such device eth0
Of course I have installed the PCMCIA package. In fact, usually a work
with my laptop with dock-bay and it works fine. My problem occurs when
I try to work with the laptop alone.
The eth0 device exists and works normally but alone doesn't.
I have no idea of how can I do.
Pls, could you tell me some guidelines? (I'm a very very newbie)

I'm not god's gift to linux networking but you have to be a terrier and keep
working away until you find the problem.

your PCMCICA card.
If you're not docked, then you just have eth0, your PCMCIA card.
(Taking your laptop out of the docking station while Linux still has
the docking station's network card driver loaded is usually fatal, in
So, while docked, can you "ifconfig eth1 10.0.0.1" or something like
that? If not, then you have a PCMCIA problem- it's not configuring
your ethernet card. What PCMCIA messages do you have? What is the
result of "cardctl ident"? (You need to be root to run that, I
