Why? /etc/modprobe.conf is a regular file and not part of the kernel itself.

Which kernel driver does your card use?


If so, here it is:

alias eth0 bcm5700
alias snd-card-0 snd-via82xx
options snd-card-0 index=0
install snd-via82xx /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-via82xx
&& /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-via82xx { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1
|| : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-via82xx
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 uhci-hcd
alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394

What I do not understand is the differnce between uname -m and uname -i.
-m gives i686 and -i gives i386.

I installed driver for i386.

You need to install the driver built specifically against the kernel you are running. So if you're running an i686 kernel, you need the i686 driver for that kernel. The rpm command I showed earlier will show what architecture your kernel RPMs are.
