SUSE and ASUS P4C Lan problem


Uh, the installation did not find the video card, well ofcourse since Linux doesn't seem to fully support the card yet, well atleast its not shipped with the 8.2 pro version. The installation selected some deafult crappy card, I think its 680x640 and 156 colors or such...how do I change the video card to something better?

I was using RH9 before but I just wanted to look though the distros to see what they offered. RH9 selected a better replacement drivers for the card I have..but suse..uh!

Also, no connection to the internet, it found my onboard LAN (I have Asus P4C motherboard) and made it as eth0, yet no connection to internet...

Thank you for your help in advance...

UPDATE:

FIXED VIDEO PROBLEM

Redhat probably installed your card as a generic vesa card (no 3D). SuSE drivers (with 3D accel.) can be found here ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/sup...I/suse82/fglrx
and for or other distros: http://www.schneider-digital.de/html/download_ati.html

Thanks for the link, I got it working but I still can't figure out why my Lan card does not work. On boot it says the Eth0 Failed. I don't know much of SuSe, I was looking around but everything seems fine, I never had onboard Lan before, I'm able to setup PCI card but I see no use for having two of them.

Also I have SB Audigy 2 Plantnium, do I have to install the drivers for it or does it come in SuSe - I don't hear anything when playing XMMS..or any other system sounds, so that's why I'm asking...

Same

I have an Asus P4c800 with a 9800 Pro. I just bought Suse 8.2 and am having the same EXACT problems. I'm still a newbie to linux, and all these conflicts that i have been having with my system aren't helping. Any replies to this thread would be a great help.

Which problems are you experiencing? LAN, video, sound?

Lightbulb HowTo get the Radeon 9800 PRO working in SuSE 8.2

This is what I did.

I went to http://www.ati.com -> Drivers and Software -> Linux -> FireGL -> FireGL X1-256p

and downloaded the driver.

As root in a console i typed rpm -Uhv fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-2... rpm (the file may have a higher version number by now so please adjust)

Next step was to edit the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file to set the screen resolution to something higher than 640*480.

********************* This is the section where I added 1280*1024 ******
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "ATI Graphics Adapter"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
#Option "backingstore"

Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" <-- change here !!!
ViewPort 0 0 # initial origin if mode is smaller than desktop
# Virtual 1280 1024
EndSubsection
EndSection
**********************************************************************************

Then i logged out and restarted the Xserver by doing a CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE

Voila, it should work now.
