Network settings in Amigo Linux


Hi, I'm trying to use Linux for the first time. I've "installed" Amigo Linux on my laptop. Also on the LAN are an XP box, ME box and 3.11 box. I want to network the Linux laptop to the others but can't even find where to enter the network settings!! Could someone please point me in the right direction?

Many thanks!

Double-click the penguin to open an xterm and type 'netconfig' to change your network settings.

Wireless Amigo ...

Hey... Everybody
Just wondering wlcardconfig included in Amigo? Are there ANY wireless tools included in Amigo? Would be great to use wireless in Amigo ! I've had luck with Feather Linux... But none with any Slackware distros

Because of size limitations, MANY useful pkgs were left out of some 'bundles'. You'll need to add wireless-tools pkg from Slackware. See /etc/Slackware-version to find out which version of Slackware pkgs to use.

Hey did you ever get your Amigo box on your network? I'm having similar problems getting an Amigo box to talk to my network and I'm out of new ideas, maybe we can muddle through together.

Cheers!

Thanks for your help - I've managed to configure the network, but can't get it to find my network card.

The machine is an IBM Thinkpad 240X(laptop) with a Netgear Carbus Mobile Adaptor PC card...

Did you try to use 'lsmod' to make sure that you didn't load the driver and just not realize it? I did that when I first got started

Thumbs up 1st. bootup a success...

not bad for a n00b in training diapers.

I'm using Amigo as per instructions unzipped on C: drive on a FAT32 partition.
booted up great with this version=amigo2rc10.zip

it even installed/loaded the "swap" file/partition from vectorlinux,kinda cool,but wonder if two (2) swap partitions are a good thing?

anyway my problem is I am not able to access the internet.
I am using a dsl modem.

amigo is loading the driver(s)/module(s) for my net card=pcnet32,but when I engage xterm and type in "lsmod" the "3" modules are not being used = "0"

also I have done the netconfig script to allow dhcp.

on vectorlinux at least one of these modules have a number=1 next to said drivers/modules.

also why is this net card driver loaded via rc.d instead of modprobe.conf?

I love this version of slackware as it allows this to learn.
dos is boss is no more.

Hello, and thanks. You'll need the dhcp and dhcpcd pks and maybe rp-pppoe as well if using ethernet (all from Slackware 9.1).
You can comment out the line in /etc/fsatb for the onboard swapFILE in /root. It's there just in case no swap partitioni s found.
You can put any modules you want in /etc/modules.conf, though it's more Slackish to just uncomment the line for the module(s) in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules or put a line in rc.local.

Thx. for the reply.
Will do as instructed.
I have the Slackware linux 4cd set I believe version 10.
A friend gave it to me.
I will see if this version works instead of slack9.1
I will post the results here on this thread unless directed otherwise.

What are the "dhcp and dhcpcd" packs? What do they do, where can I find them, etc.?

Thanks for any assistance!

Get them from any Slackware mirror from the 9.1 version tree. they are in ...../slackware/slackware9.1/slackware/a
You might want to browse the /a and /ap directories especially and see if you need anything else.

What, specifically, should I look for in those directories? I've checked a couple of different mirrors and I didn't see anything with dhcp in the title in the 'a' or 'ap' directories, but I did find dhcp packages in the 'n' folder.
