Tinkster also mentioned pico, and I would recommend you use pico as a text editor, or use an editor such as kedit if you have kde installed and working. You can master the intricacies of vi later on (when you have a spare hour to kill :-))
I think that using any gooey editors at this stage would be too complicated, or
too nasty :} ... we'd either encourage him to log into X as root (which is a big
no-no) or have to explain to him how the permissions on the DISPLAY work,
exporting it and setting up xhost and all that.

Aight everyone! First thing first. I greatly appreciate all of y'alls help but nothing has worked for me. some commands SLACKWARE doesn't recognize and the others work but don't give me internet access. I don't know if its me or what.... Does anyone have any screen shots of this stuff to help me walk through? I would greatly appreciate it....


THaNKs,

00:04.0 Ethernet Controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 Ethernet Controller (rev a3)
for this device, go here. do you have any Windows partitions on this computer mounted in linux? if so you can boot in windows, download the file and instructions, reboot to linux, copy the installation file to your /home/userName folder and execute them.
if you dont have any other OS on this computer then get on one that does and download the file, save it to a floppy or CD (i didnt check the filesize), reboot, mount the CD/floppy and do the same procedure.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quote:
01:04.0 Ethernet Controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8001 Gig. Ethernet Controller (rev 13)
for this device, open a terminal (or unless your already just stuck at the command prompt right now), and do the following:
1- 'su' [enter]
2- type root password [enter]
3- 'modprobe sk98lin' [enter]
4- 'ifconfig eth0 up' [enter] NOTE: replace '0' with '1' or '2', as it seems you have _three_ (!?) NICs?
5- 'ping yahoo.com' [enter]

if you dont recieve replies from step 5 then run the command in step 4 2 more times, with '1' and '2'.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quote:
01:08.0 Ethernet Controller: D-Link System Inc. RTL8139 Ethernet (rev 10)
for this device do the same steps 1-5 as mentioned with the other NIC, but in step 3, do 'modprobe 8139too' [enter] instead.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------


this is basically a straightforward to setup each of the 3 devices listed. just do one and report back.. i suggest starting with the 2nd one, the Marvell one.

edit: if one of these methods DO in fact work, we can let you know what the commands do. also, there is a very popular slackware installation and setup walkthrough with pictures.. use a search engine and lookup keywords like 'slackware walkthrough bitbender' itll probably be the first result.

yes, jmattshirey, what are you referring to?
also, as i previously stated, try the method in the middle, with the 5 steps. or the method after that. resort to the first one with the nforce drivers last, as one of the previous two should work.

Apache2Triad

Also, I was running Apace2traid on my Windows server.... I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a Linux version of Apaceh2triad. If not does anyone know where i can get all of the soft titles in it and where i can find install guides?

can you tell us what you did to get the NIC working so others searching this thread with similar problems will have a concrete answer, thanks.

open a terminal window, 'cd' to the folder with the file and use 'tar xzf fileName' and it will create a folder and extract the compressed file's contents into it. there should be a README or INSTALL file in the new folder. these files will tell you what the program is, what you need, and (or at least) how to install it.

to install my ethernet card i used the following code.

opened a terminal.
1. 'su' [enter]
2. type root password [enter]
3. 'modprobe 8139too' [enter]
4. 'ifconfig eth0 up' [enter]
5. 'ping yahoo.com' [enter]

This cured my problem very quickly.

apache was developed for unix based systems, so yes there is a linux version of the software. check the official site.

EDIT: jmatt, most likely when you reboot youll notice your internet connection is gone. if so, add the modprobe and ifconfig commands to the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file, and use 'chmod' to make the rc.local file executable. the commands in this file will be executed after the computer is booted and before you log in, so everytime you start your NIC and internet connection should be working.

i know there is a version for unix but is there a version of Apache2triad. You can find Apache2triad [URL="http://www.apache2triad.net"]here[/URL. This isn't on the Apache official website. This has alot of software in one package.

well i was referring to the 'official' apache2triad site.
it looks like its only for windows, and youll have to download/install the individual packages from the apache site.

please note that slackware 10.2 (as well as most linux distributions) include this software with the CDs you download, and most likely are all already installed.

to see what major software (and their versions) that came with slackware 10.2 are visit here. youll notice the following, among many others, are installed already (if you did complete install): apache, mysql, openssh, perl, and php.
