I am installing slackware 9 on my friend's box but i am having some problems with his network card. I ran a standard install from the CDROM and used the netconfig program to configure the network. He has an LNE100TX PCI card and I can't seem to get it working.
The netconfig program tells me it finds a card that uses the tulip.o driver and finishes telling me network setup is complete.
When i ifconfig the only interface shown is loopback and when I lsmod it lists tulip like this:
tulip 41248 0
No lights light up on my card, and I cannot use any network functions.
I found a similar problem on this thread:
but there is no clear solution there.
Any help you could provide in setting up PCI cards and networking would be appreciated.
