Continuing problems with Mandriva LE2007 install
My daughter bought me the 4 Mandriva LE 2007 install cd's for Christmas from Cheapbytes and I had a lot of problems with the install and all the parts/modules working. I am currently running LE2006 on a standard box, 1400 mhz Athlon, 256 megs ram, 40 gigs hard drive. I connect to the internet through a dialup connection (external modem) and I share the internet connection with two WINXP boxes. We really need the shared Internet connection as our small family of three are avid Internet users. Well I tried to install LE 2007, got the distro loaded, setup the modem connection to the Internet and that worked fine. I then tried to do the internet sharing thing, linking my modem to the ethernet card which is connected to a hub along with the other two computers. LE2007 kept coming back saying that there was no ethernet card installed. I went to the hardware section in MCC and re-installed the card, went back to my internet sharing setup and now the install tells me that i need the package bind ? but I can't install it ? What a piece of crap. I went to another company online (OSDisc.com), bought the same cd's and had the same problem. I had to re-install LE2006 as we need our internet connections.
I am so ticked off that I am looking for another distro. If any of you have any ideas, please let me know
