Anyways, i'm trying to setup a router/firewall/server out of an old P100 48MB RAM 800 Mb hard drive. (no X). I have slackware 9.1 installed and upgraded/built to kernel 2.6.4 (i have experience with gentoo but none with slackware).
I initially setup up my slackware + kernel compile on vmware on my faster machine (2ghz), when i switched the slackware 9.1 ready hd to the P100, all went ok....excpet for this
i've already tried netconfig and setting to recieve from dhcp...but it's not working...
during boot time i get this error:
INIT: Entering runlevel 3
Going multiuser . . .
dhcpcd: broadcasting DHCP_REQUEST for 192.168.40.131
dhcpcd: timed out waiting for DHCP_ ACK response
dhcpcd: boradcasting DHCP_DISCOVER
dhcpcd: timed out waiting for a valid DHCP server response
i did not setup my slackware machine to request address 192.168.40.131......how do i get eth0 or eth1 to get IP from dhcp?
I know for sure that my dhcp server (win2k ICS) is working..
ps: i have a experience with gentoo but none with slackware...this is my first shot at this distro
