Setting networking?


What module do I use for an Intel PRO/100 VE network card? How do I get the module loaded and then how do I bring up the interface? You can see I'm too used to RedHat.

You can try the command

modprobe eepro100

and then use the "lsmod" command to see if it appears loaded. If there are any error messages then probably not. You can look in the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 script for an example of bringing up the interface and the gateway route, etc.

I think if you create the script /etc/rc.d/rc.netdevice to load the module and then set the execute bits, the system will load the module before calling the rc.inet1 script.

Good luck.

OK, the module came up without problems. I checked it out with lsmod. Now I just need to bring up the interfaces. Now because of my amazing ability to be unleniant in giving up disk space during installation I neglected to install basic networking programs. ipconfig, netstat to name a few. How would I get these installed from the Slackware 8.1 CD-ROM?

Well, now I learned something. I didn't know they were optional. The packages are located in the slackware/n directory of the install CD. Unless you have real disk space problems, I would suggest to install all of them if the disk n set was not selected. But the precise package is the tcpip-0.17 package.

Mount the cd and change directory to slackware/n directory and run the command "pkgtool" at that location. Select Install from current directory. You will be prompted for each package.
