Hi! I'm fairly new to linux and I've managed to install it countless times and finally got the kernel running without errors,
now i have a problem. I cannot access the my linksys, at the moment we have 3 computers connected to the internet(all on windows) using a linksys SD208, and a DHCP IP assignment, I've tried all sorts of searches in google and can't find my problem.
does anyone have any idea how to connect to this, and maybe give me some insight into what im doing wrong.
this is the output of uname -a
Linux middle 2.6.18 #4 Wed Sep 27 23:05:46 CDT 2006 i686 athlon-4 i386 GNU/Linux
Did you build that 2.6 kernel yourself, or is it one of the kernels that come with Slack? If the latter, did you install the kernel-modules package? That package contains modules for network cards (amongst other things).
The kernel-modules package can be found on any Slackware mirror. Since you're using the 2.6.18 kernel, the package you want will be in slackware-11.0/testing/packages/linux-2.6.18 on any mirror. You should be able to find it on the CDs/DVD as well, but I'm afraid I can't remember which CD contains the testing directory.
from your first post of "ifconfig" it seems you either do not have a nic card, it's a bad card, or your network is not enabled. in essance your nic card is not working or has no power comming from the board. if it did in "ifconfig" you would see a eth0 listed even if it was not properly configured.
