So, I've got an AGP video G4 (in the blue-n-white like case). What is the onboard ethernet in this thing? I built a 2.6 kernel, included both of the mac network drivers, rebooted, and "ifconfig eth0" shows nothing. I built both drivers into the kernel. So now I'm going through, building a few others as modules, hoping one will work. Anyone wanna save me some time and just tell me which driver to use on this silly thing? :)

As far as I know it is the sungem driver.

Also you should check if netwok settings are ok.

By "ifconfig shows nothing" I meant that ifconfig tells me that there's no eth0 device to config... Sungem it is, though. Thanks. I've got an eth0, and can go back to finishing up the install (and building a new kernel with sungem built in). Hooray, thanks, etc. :)
