Try to add "smsc911x" to the end of /etc/modules

If that does not work you need to let everyone see your /etc/network/interfaces setup.

I have put ubuntu on my overo earth with tobi expansion board, and cannot get the ethernet to work, I recompiled the 2.6.29 kernel and I can load the module no problem

smsc911x: Driver version 2008-10-21.
smsc911x-mdio: probed
eth1: attached PHY driver [Generic PHY] (mii_bus:phy_addr=ffffffff:01, irq=-1)
net eth1: MAC Address: 00:15:c9:28:c1:96

However when I try to set the ip of the eth interface I get

SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device
net eth1: ISR failed signaling test (IRQ 336)

I am guessing I didn't configure the kernel properly, does anyone have an idea of what could be the issue??

Thanks for any help
