win32sux, now I am writing to you from Klax, it works! this is ifconfig

root@klax:~# ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:E0:4C:69:28:E5
inet addr:192.168.1.167 Bcast:255.255.255.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

UP BROADCAST NOTRAILERS RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1

TX packets:1360 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:853813 (833.8 Kb) TX bytes:197495 (192.8 Kb)
Interrupt:11 Base address:0xa000

lo Link encap:Local Loopback

TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

So, after the booting of Klax the system works directly; if I run netconfig, with the static IP the system works, with DHCP it doesn't. For your question, with respect to windows, I try to search DHCP hostname without results.

i'm glad it works for you on a live cd!

yeah, that also means there's no need for the hostname specifier...

i don't know man, if i were you i'd re-install slackware cuz something's probably broken in the install somewhere... if you choose to do this, make sure you do a full-install of the series you want, instead of cherry-picking packages...

also, forget the netconfig utility and just edit your rc.inet1.conf by hand...

Hmm.. I'm still stumped on this one.

-It seems you confirmed the 8139too driver is working.
-You can manually configure the card for a static IP address and it works
-During boot DHCPCD runs and fails to get an address for the card.
-You ran a live CD (KLAX) and the Dhcp client works.

Does anybody know what dhcp client Klax uses? Are they using dhcpcd or pump? I think it's the first one since Klax is based on Slax and Slax is based on slackware.

I downloaded the Hamlet router manual and it seems to use a pretty straight forward dhcp server. So where is the problem happening here? The card works, the server works, a static ip works, a live cd properly connects. Manually running dhcpcd does not work.

Please keep us informed on how the reinstall goes, I'm curious on this one.

win32sux: I reinstall slack (the forth time), without run netconfig and nothing works; I go to rc.inet1.conf, I put "yes" on "USE_DHCP" , I reboot and nothing works. I return to rc.inet1.conf, I put the IPs and it doesn't works.
N.B.:I always choose full install, without "cherry-picking".

kriton12: when I choose "static IP" on netconfig on Slack 10.2, it doesn't works.
When I boot Klax live-CD the system works; if I run netconfig: with "static IP" it works, with "DHCP" it doesn't works.

1) It is possible that the program DHCP or DHCPCD is broken (the CD come from a magazine)? or a conflict between DHCP and DHCPCD?
2) I don't know wich program are used by Klax. When I boot on Klax, the file rc.inet1.conf reported ="" on IPADDR, NETMASK, USE_DHCP.
3) with "pkgtool" I see that on Klax dhcpcd is installed, but dhcp is not
4) so, I return on Slack 10.2, I remove dhcp, I reboot but it doesn't works.

i assume you uncommented the line for your card's module in rc.modules, right??

hmmm, this is weird stuff... what's the md5sum of your dhcpcd package??

in fact, being that you say the cd came in a magazine, i'd checksum all the files on it to be sure everything is fine... the checksum of the CHECKSUMS.md5 file itself should be:
Code:
5b7c0f9cdf4489d1128b4c3a8f249594
after you've confirmed that file is fine, proceed to check all the files on the cd by using the "md5sum -c CHECKSUMS.md5" on the checksum file and waiting for all the files to be checksummed...

I don't know how to check the files; I'm going to the Slack book to learn it

to check the CHECKSUMS.md5 file on the CD just do a:
Code:
md5sum /mnt/cdrom/CHECKSUMS.md5
(assuming you mounted the cd at /mnt/cdrom blah blah blah...)

then after you are sure the checksum of that file is the same as the one i posted above, proceed to checksum all the files on the disk by feeding the md5sum program the checksum list file:
Code:
cd /mnt/cdrom
md5sum -c CHECKSUMS.md5 | less
it will take a while for all the checksums to be computed...

the checksum of that file is completely different from the one you posted above!!!

root@jake:~# md5sum /mnt/cdrom/CHECKSUMS.md5

actually, this checksum you've posted is the correct one for the CHECKSUMS.md5 file on the SECOND cd...

so do the same check again, but this time using CD1...

well, there should be a checksum file on the DVD for the files from CD 1, no?? perhaps with another name??

BTW, if you have the ability to download the official ISO(s) and burn yourself a CD(s) i think it would be a good idea to do it...

Hi
I burned the official ISO and installed the full packages
I choose static IP or DHCP on netconfig
I wrote directly on the file inet1.conf
(I controlled the checksum of the DHCPCD file, it is OK)
but it doesn't works...
