Hey guys, I'm kinda out of ideas on how to configure my DHCP and my sound. One thing at a time thought so I'll start with DHCP
I'm using Slackware 8.1 both the shell and jumping into X. Trying to use Lisa (I believe is the name of the automatic network setup) I get the error that I don't have a card installed. I'm thinking perhabs this is because it is built onto my motherboard but I'm fresh out of ideas on where to go, what to do next. My system is a VPR Matrix model ft5110PE. I would appreciate any help with onboard lan cards and configuration of DHCP. Thanks guys!
Do you have the module loaded? Usually a lspci -vv will show you which card you've got. I've read around a bit, seems alot of the integrated ones are realteks, so if you are impatient you could try:
And then hope it works. However, I'd suggest lspci -vv hunt through it, find the type you've got, find out which module is needed, modprobe it, then start dhcpcd on eth0.
