insmod fails SiS900; No MII transceivers found! - Debian

    Default insmod fails SiS900; No MII transceivers found!

    Hi,

    While using modconf to load the SiS900 driver on a friends desktop, I
    receive the following error:

    sis900.c: v1.06.09 09/28/2001
    eth0: SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet at 0xede00, IRQ11, 00:d0:09: e1:7f:6e.
    eth0: No MII transceivers found!
    /lib/modules/2.2.20-idepci/net/sis900.o: init_module: Device or resource
    busy
    Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters,
    including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
    /lib/modules/2.2.20-idepci/net/sis900.o: insmod
    /lib/modules/2.2.20-idepci/net/sis900.o failed

    I haven't added any parameters for the module insertion.

    Does this point to a hardware fault on my friends desktop? Or should I
    add parameters to the module insertion?

    A google search result recommended I alter my BIOS setting so IRQ is not
    allocated to PCI VGA. This failed to alter the error. The LAN is
    enabled in BIOS.

    I tried 2.4.18 kernel (sis900.c version 1.08.02) and the error remained.

    I cannot ping with both computers running windoze, or the desktop
    running windoze and the laptop with linux.

    I have a fully functional network with my laptop and my own desktop,
    using the same crossover cable.

    The SiS900 is integrated, not PCI. I've installed Woody 3.0r0.

    Any suggestions I'm grateful for.

    Tim

    Default insmod fails SiS900; No MII transceivers found! (rewritten and reposted)

    Hi folks,

    Thought that if I were to recompile this email it might be made into
    some sense by an helpful person out there. Sorry for being OT. If
    inappropriate, what list could you suggest I send to?

    The short problem:

    I cannot insmod sis900 with a 2.2.20 or 2.4.18 kernel on a friends desktop.

    The long explanation:

    The error message:
    > sis900.c: v1.06.09 09/28/2001
    > eth0: SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet at 0xede00, IRQ11, 00:d0:09: e1:7f:6e.

    What I've tried:

    1. Google. From this I altered the BIOS setting so the IRQ is not
    allocated to PCI VGA. Failed to make any difference.

    Theories I might suggest:

    1. Hardware fault within the sis900 chip.
    2. I need to add parameters to the module insertion (which are unknown
    to me)

    Any suggestions gratefully received.

    Thanks, Tim

    Unfortunately the error is the same with modprobe, insmod or modconf. :-/

    Thanks, Tim
