Hi, I'm having trouble setting the interrupts in Slack 8.1
I use a 3com 3c509 ISA PNP card
My mouse and NIC are using conflicting IRQ's (12), i've tried changing it manually in the isapnp.conf which is fine, and it says that it sets the IRQ to 3 on boot, but then for some reason when doing an ifconfig eth0 it says the interrupt is now 5 and the problem still exists...the only way i have found to correct this problem is to uplug the mouse if i know i need to use the internet and just work from console mode...and reboot when i need to login into the X server....now obvoiusly this doesn't create a very stable system and is a HUGE pain in the ass...so if anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated...
p.s. maybe i can change the irq that the mouse works on(also i have a microsoft wheel mouse but am currently using only the ps2/aux module for the mouse not imps2), so if someone knows how to do that please let me know.
