I'm a newbie to Linux. I'm currently using RedHat 8 with a 2.4 kernel.
I've managed to setup my ADSL modem. Currently, I'm able to ping IPs but not hostname. I've included my ISP's DNS IP in the /etc/resolve.conf like so
However, I'm encountering the hostname problem.
Any kind souls to advise?
My ADSL modem is the USB type, model is Prolink8000. Supposedly PnP on Windows. What I did was recompile the kernel and I used this driver from sourceforge. I've followed all the instructions in the post, so fasr so good except for the DNS. I've checked with my ISP and I've entered it in the /etc/resolve.conf
Thought of it, but since this is my first time using Linux and I'm already this close to finish setting up, I might as well just try solving it. I'll move on to some latest distro, not to worry. Right now, I found this setting up process very intresting. Linux is quite amazing I should say.
Hopefully, someone can shed some light on this issue.
