Question Network Card, Samba and Printer Configuration in Mandrake 10?


I'm using Mandrake 10, Community Download.

I'm struggling to get my VIA Rhine II network card configured and working, also struggling to get nmbd, and winbind running so that I can set up a samba server to allow windows users to connect to my system. I am also not sure if I'm following the right procedures to actually allow windows users to connect to my system. Also have no idea how to get my printer, Samsung SCX-1100 MFD, running in Linux. Have tried raw drivers as well as the HP Oficejet drivers, but none seem to work. I also went to the Samsung web-site and they also do not have any available Linux Drivers.

Any help will really be appreciated.

Thanking you in advance.

You've got to take it one step at a time

First you'll need to get that networking card working, and then the rest will follow. I googled your card and it looks like the module for that card is called via-rhine However, I only saw it for the newer kernels (2.5/2.6) so I am not sure if you are going to have it or not. The quickest way to find out is to:
Open a terminal
Login as root:
su -
Enter root's password, and then type:
modprobe via-rhine
And see if you get anything. Feel free to post up any error messages.

Also, post up the output of typing:
lspci
into a terminal.

Cool

See, I'm running Mandrake 10, Community Download. Before that I ran Mandrake 9.1 and 9.2. The problem is, the card get's installed and everything, but it always asigns a local address, even if I'm on a network running static ip's. In windows it works fine, but not in Linux, I tried it with all three those packages and all give the same problem. No idea why :[

I'm fairly new to Linux, but i love it to bits. It's just SOOO much more interesting than windows.

Thanks anyway, I will bring it my pc to work tomorrow and hopefully I'll at least get the network card sorted out.

I tried lspci as well as ifup eth0, this is the outpu I received;

ifup eth0:

ifup eth0
Determining IP information for eth0...SIOCSIFFLAGS: Function not implemented
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Function not implemented
failed.

When I rebooted my system, it also failed to get my card up and running, so I am now trying to get it running on the tulip module.
