problems with ethernet internet connection and sound on laptop with OS suse 10/ winXP
I am not an expert linux user. Recently i bought a laptop Acer Aspire 1694WLMi with preinstalled WindowsXP home edition. There were three partitions on the hard disk, I deleted one and resized another one and I installed on the free disk suse10.
I have the following problems:
no sound is produced and I don't have internet access via ethernet cable.
I want to connect via DHCP to the LAN of my workplace. I can do this under windows but not under linux. More precisely, I was able connect once (after doing manual configuration with YAST) and at that moment the sound server was working.
Then I rebooted the machine I booted windows then rebooted again linux and sound and internet connection didn't work anymore.
Givng the command route -n I can see only the line
127.0.0.0 lo and no rows for eth0.
Giving ifconfig command I can see that no IP adress is given to the card, wich by the way is recognized by the system (like the audio card, AC97 integrated).
It seems that DHCP is not working (still at least once it worked).
By the way, I tried with Knoppix and sound and network were Ok.
The configuration settings seem to be correct....
