Re: eth0: unknown interface: Operation not supported by device


When you recompiled the kernel, did you include the networking and
ethernet stuff specific to your card in the configuration?  This is very
important to make the kernel recognize the ethernet card.  It could be
compiled as a module and the kernel now has the ability to auto load
modules on demand.

Have a good day
