Dear all,

After installing 147 update packages the NIC eth0 (Attansic L2 on
board) don't work any more.

error message:
atl2 device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.

1. make install
warning: #warning Including config.h is deprecated.
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.18-53.1.19.el5/source
O=/lib/modules/2.6.18-53.1.19.el5/build SUBDIRS=/root/linux network

1.1 make install don't work, no new binary of the NIC driver to find

Another attempt:
2.1 copy NIC driver binary



2.2 Install the module:
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.18-53.1.19.el5/kernel/drivers/net/atl2/atl2.ko

2.2.1 NIC eth0 (on board) active
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:13:74:00:5C:38
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:00:E2:14:0A:3F
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

2.2.2 No internet access, server routes now internet access via eth0
instead of eth1
traceroute to www.google.com (, 30 hops max, 40 byte packets
 1  server.ltsp (  3000.792 ms !H  3000.793 ms !H  3000.788 ms !H

2.2.3 After restart the dhcdd thin clients can boot from the server.

3. Restart of the Server

3.1 eth0 and dhcpd failed to start, no thin client net
3.2 eth1 works fine, internet access works

Is there any chance to get the eth0 and permanetly running?
