Yes I did :(
I tried to see the feedback with and without insmod il. The results are interesting. the Aliasing between eth0 and il, may work after all. I have no idea though what is going wrong.
before running 'insmod il' , after trying 'ifup eth0', I am getting:
SIOCADDRT: No such device
after running 'insmod il' , after trying 'ifup eth0', I am getting:
SIOCADDRT: Network is down
I unpluggend the hpna card, run cat /proc/pci, replugged the card, run cat /proc/pci (again). The unit recognises the hpna card as device no 8 (although it does not write anything about the chipset, or other high level information about the type of card (i.e. hpna something))
I have no idea why it doesn't work. I hope that it is not a bad driver...
