I cant connect


I just installe Redhat 9 successfully on my Dell Inspiron 600m laptop. However, I cannot connect to the internet b/c redhat does not detect my ethernet card. I have a broadcom 570x card. If anyone could assist, that would be great. Thanks.

Looks like if you scroll down a little bit somebody else had a similar problem and provided a link. Hopefully that helps.

It means you need to install the kernel source files. I assume you have the RH9 cds. It should be on one of those.

Also if you go to Add/Remove Applications there might be an option in there to install the kernel source files. I haven't used RH9 in a while so I don't rmember if it has the add/remove applications program in there.

If you don't have the CD you can download them from one of these 2 places depending on the version of kernel you are using. To determine your exact version type in uname -r

http://download.fedoralegacy.org/redhat/9/os/i386/
http://download.fedoralegacy.org/redhat/9/updates/i386/

just search for the "kernel-source" on those 2 pages and install them using the command rpm -ihv filename.rpm .

Or just say "cobblers" to the RH9 and get yourself a copy of the Fedora Core 4 latest version. It'll probably save you a wealth of anguish and hassle.
