suse 10 + cannot connect to lan + no usb mouse detection
I am running Suse Linux 10 on my Compaq Presario M2202TU Notebook.
There are couple of things i need help in..
I connect to the internet using my college LAN network. In windows xp, this means that i just plug in the LAN cable to the ethernet card, and it automatically gets connected. I do not have to set any Static IP address. IP address is automatically set.
These are the details as I see it in Windows XP
Address Type : Assigned by DHCP
IP Address : 134.x.x.x
Default Gateway : 134.x.x.x
DNS Server : 134.x.x.x
Now I have no issues at all with windows. The connection is via the college proxy server, which I have to authenticate with my username & password. But I have been unsuccessful in setting up the network in SUSE. My ethernet card is detected properly (Realtech RTL8139 Family PCI Fast NIC). Could you please help me configure the network? I have tried tweaking around with YAST, but have had no success.
Secondly, I have a usb mouse, which again is not detected in Linux. How to I get that to work?
Thirdy, I have problems with the sound card. My sound card is also detected (Conextant AC-Link Audio AC'97), but there is no sound output. How do I reslolve that?
And lastly, how do I mount my USB flash disk in linux? Its not like Ubuntu (which I used before), where it would automatically mount as I plug it in.
I know its a lot of questions, but any help would be appretiated.
