Well, I'm starting with GNU/Linux, so my question may look obvious for you, but I really need a help!
I installed Conectiva 8 in a machine with some non so new hardware.
I could not set my network adapter properly. This is a RealTek 8139D. Conectiva 8 supports it, but it's not working. I could not even get a response from command "lspci".
The second problem is with my video adapter, I guess.
When GNU/Linux starts, if I chose the "Text Mode" it works fine, but if I chose the "Graphic Mode" the screen turns to black and can't see a thing!
My video adapter is a Trident all right set. When I had to chose the monitor, duringin the installation, then I choose the Generic. Can this be the problem?
Any help is welcome!
