basic networking Qs


Guys,

I have a built-in ethernet card (into the mother Board) which I don't want to use, and a PCI network card I want to use.

The computer is a standalone machine. How can I make Slack, use the PCI card?

ifconfig runs circles around my head.

Disable the internal ethernet device in the BIOS
Add an alias for eth0 to your net card module in
/etc/modprobe.conf (2.6 kernel) or
/etc/modules.conf (2.4 kernel)

You might be able to disable the built in one in the bios or jumper on the mb. If slack doesn't detect your pci nic then you will have to load the module for it. Check the /etc/rc.d/rc.modules to see if it is listed. then uncomment it to load it on reboot. then run netconfig if you haven't already.
