I recently scrapped my RedHat system to try out slackware 9.1 - the install went fine and detected everything.
But when I went to install the modem stuff for my eciadsl modem I got some problems.
In the modem script of "startmodem" when it tries to insert usb-uhci controller i get a bunch of messages along the lines of:
/lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/usb/host/usb-uhci.o.gz : init_module : No such device.
and says check dmesg and syslog, which show no errors for the insmod, but some errors are there for something else (I dont know what triggers them!):
usbdevfs : USBDEVFS_BULK failed
usb_control / bulk_msg : timeout
However usb stuff does still work, and I connect to my isp who gives me an IP address.
THen, if I traceroute to www.linuxquestions.org,
it goes fine and traces all the way here. But if I enter the url in a browser it says "connected: waiting for a reply" but never gets one. AND, after when I traceroute after that I get "host cannot be resolved" a couple of times before it will trace again!
Have I just missed an important config in slackware, or is that usb-uhci thing? Sorry I cant be more specific on the error messages - I am typing this at an Internet "Cafe" full of backpackers in 37 degree heat! If I have to sit here for another hour I will probably start crying!
