I just installed Slackware 9 onto my machine and the install seemed to go very well. While configuring my network, the probe detected my ethernet card and said all was well. When I booted into GNOME, and opened Mozilla to test the internet, I was rewarded with a "page unable to be opened" message. I ran
/sbin/netconfig again, and when it got to the part where it probed for my ethernet card, it said "No ethernet card has been found on your system."
I looked at my /etc/rc.d/rc.netdevice file and it told me this :
#Load module for network device.
#This script generated during the installation.
So I ran /sbin/modprobe 8139too and gave me this message:
modprobe: Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r2/modulesdep (No such file or directory).
I am kind of confused as to why the gentoo part of "2.4.20-gentoo-r2" was mentioned. I recently tried to install gentoo on my system but the downloads were ridiculously slow, so I reformatted and repartitioned that hard disk, so I'm not too sure why gentoo didnt get erased (I chose "Install kernel from Slackware CD" during installation.
So now I'm a little frustrated about this issue, but I know I can get the help I need from the people here.
thanks in advance
