I'm having problems installing my nic


I just installed Slackware 9.0. Before that I had Mandrake 9.0 and it automatically recognized my nic plus it had that harddrake utility that I could use to get it. With slack i think I have command line it and i'm that proficient yet. The device is a d-link dl10038. If anyone knows of an automatic tool let me know, if not could you guys help me configure my nic. I have a cable modem and I'm trying to get my nic working so I can get online

I can't find that nic in the Kernel documentation,
but since you said MDK found it I'll just assume
you ogt the name wrong :) ...

Can you please post the output of
lspci -v
?

Cheers,
Tink

This is what is displayed about the ethernet controller. I didn't give you the entire display from the command because I had to hand write it as I don't currently have the internet working on my Linux Box

Sweet ... :}

try a manual
modprobe 8139too
and tell us what happens :)

If that works, you should run
netconfig
again, and see whether it picks it up this
time round (it should have done that in
the first place, really, since this is one
of the adapters it probes for)...

Cheers,
Tink
