Hi all,

I just installed the linux and rtai packages coming with etherlab, and
etherlab itself. Everything seemed to run fine. I am running a gentoo
distribution, so I cannot use the startup script.

Now when I try to load the packages manually:
modprobe ec_master ec_eoeif_count=0
modprobe ec_8139too ec_device_index=0

I get the syslog messages:
EtherCAT: Master driver 1.2.0 stable r770
EtherCAT: Initialising 1 EtherCAT Master(s)
EtherCAT: Initialising Master 0
EtherCAT: Master 0 initialised.
ec8139too EtherCAT-capable Fast Ethernet driver 0.9.27, master 1.2.0 stable r770
ec_device_index is 0
No EtherCAT device registered!

... I think that might be because I use a NIC with Realtek 8139C+ Chip
(lspci says: ...RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
... can anybody tell me what might be wrong?

I did not connect any network /bus yet, but I don't think that's the problem.

Thanks for any help,
