Boost Reliability with Ethernet Bonding and Linux - page 2
Recycling the Ethernet
You'll need both
ethtool installed. Then take a look in your kernel's
config file and make sure that bonding is enabled as a module:
$ grep -i bonding /boot/config-2.6.20-16 CONFIG_BONDING=m
It must be a loadable kernel module so that you can pass in various command options. Then verify that your NICs are working and have a good connection to the network:
eth0: negotiated 100baseTx-FD, link ok eth1: negotiated 100baseTx-FD, link ok
Then make sure the required kernel module is present on your system:
$ modprobe --list | grep bonding /lib/modules/2.6.20-16/kernel/drivers/net/bonding/bonding.ko
The remaining steps are different on Debian and Fedora, so let's see how Debian does it.
