Can't find eth0


The satellite installer left a few hours ago, my ancient laptop does internet at high speed, but I can't do it with the desktop.
Had the laptop at a friend's house years ago and got highspeed working, but the notes from then don't help.
When I type anything referring to eth0, a typical respone is
"interface not found or invalid".


Did pppoe-setup, finished OK.
Looked in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf, and it looks the same as the laptop, so can anyone tell what I did wrong?

This is a new re-install of 13.37

Are you using a Standalone DSL/Cable Modem or a DSL/Cable Modem with Integrated Router/Switch?

I don't know what kind of modem - it's a big thing with flashing blue lights and says XPLORNET on it.

Better question then...

Does your modem have Wi-Fi and about 4 Ethernet ports on the back of it?

No, it has only one unused port, and that's USB.

Okay you have a Standard (Brand X) DSL/Cable Modem... Good. Now let's see what else is going on...

I'm also guessing you are always switching the Ethernet cable between the laptop and the desktop, right?

Question - Did you run Slackware's netconfig to setup your networking and IP addressing functions (usually this is done during the installation)?

Can't post that mass of text, but ifconfig starts with lo
then Link encap:local loopback etc.

lspci is almost all about AMD device and ATI Technologies.
MAybe you could tell me what to look for?

There is no link between my desktop and my laptop, and my typing skill is not up to transcribing all that.

fyi here are the outputs, from this laptop running slackware-12 and with a good eth0.

I've assumed that during install all I have to do is netconfig, select for the dynamic high speed (dhcp? anyway the one immediately above loopback), finish the install as usual and reboot.
Then typing dhcpcd eth0 should be enough to connect.
Is there something else required?
