Well i decided to compile a new kernel using the 2.4.22 kernel so i could acutally get my nic card to work right and my sound card
But i did so, did everything, edited my lilo.conf , ran /sbin/lilo afterwards it says added Linux, Linux-2.4.22 so far so good
well i goto lilo when i reboot, i select my new kernel, it does its thing acts like it will work, then reboots my computer... it does it everytime, but doesnt leave an error message or anything.. very strange really , oh this is Slack 9.0 and im also trying to get a d-link DFE530TX+ nic card to work on it. So i figured recompling a new kernel would help with that, being as it woulnt work.. also i dont have a /usr/src/linux dir at all, in my /usr/src all i have is /rpm
so how do i get that linux director their?? so ya its a mutil part ? Main problem is the kernel rebooting the machine everytime so its very odd to me. Also would like to find any way to get that ethernet card workign right cuz im sure itll work. and also about the /usr/src/linux dir i metniond but any help is appreciated
