I'm attempting to install Ubuntu Server 10.04.2 i686 on a very old Dell Latitude. The network card I have to use for it is a "Xircom RealPort Ethernet 10/100+Modem 56" PCMIA card.
During install, the card works fine and the installer can fetch packages from the internet. Of note is that I have to remove and reinsert the card for it to be detected properly.
When I install Ubuntu to the HD, the card stops working entirely. The kernel module
xe which I think was allowing it to work in the installer is not loaded or even installed to the kernel on the HD.
ifconfig shows only the loopback.
How can I get this card to work when Ubuntu is installed? Thanks.
