Angry Mouse quits after Hauppage card install


Help! I'm new to Linux and I can't figure out what is the problem. I installed Fedora without the capture card and the NIC cards installed. I found that Fedora doesn't recognize the onboard Ethernet port of my Epox EP-8RDA+ motherboard. So, I installed a RealTek NIC I had from my cable provider that I wasn't using. Fedora recognized the NIC card OK. But when I booted in the mouse was not working. I narrowed this down to the Hauppage capture card that was causing the mouse problem. Does anyone know what's up with this? Also, I still have not been able to establish an internet connection. So, any help with that would be appreciated as well.


Also, how do I get to the command line in Fedora and which one is it, aren't there several varieties in Linux? Can someone give me a link to a tutorial on this?



Many Thanks!

Hi. I note that no-one has replied to your post. I can't help with your hauppage problem, which is a pity, as I have a hauppage card lying around somewhere, and was hoping to eventually find it again and install it in my (I hope) soon to be fedora linux computer (currently rh9).

There are several shells that you can use, but first (assuming that you're running an x windows terminal). I'd advise that you learn bash, though there are reasons for learning other shells such as ksh.

You can get a shell window during your (e.g. kde) windowing session, by selecting
"Run Command" (or similar, depending on which window manager you're using), and typing "konsole" (without the quotes of course). If you don't have KDE installed, then you can type "xterm".

You'll then be able to use the shell. There are lots of helpful pages on the net, and

http://linux.org.mt/article/terminal

looks a fairly good place to start. Compared to DOS, the linux shell is harder to learn. But, that's because, when you've learnt a few tricks, linux shells have orders of magnitude more power than DOS. I taught a second year uni course just on using the linux/unix shell, and common commands such as grep, sed, awk, etc.

Cheers,

Ross-c
