i've just installed slackware 9.0 with the 2.4.20 kernel, and i'm trying to get my ethernet card configured properly. i thought i might just need to enable dhcp, and i found the following instructions for RH:
edit the file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
but i can't for the life of me find the sysconfig directory anywhere, not to mention network scripts or efcfg-eth0
where can i find these in this distro?
also of concern is a message during boot:
8139too Fast Ethernet driver 0.9.26 <--- this is my eth card
PCI: Found IRQ 10 for device 00:0d.0
PCI: Sharing IRQ 10 with 00:10.2
eth0: RealTek RTL8139 Fast Ethernet at 0xf888b000 00:50:2c:05:c7:6a, IRQ 10
8139cp: 10/100 PCI Ethernet Driver v0.3.0 (Sept 29, 2002)
and now this part which gets repeated over and over:
insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/net/8139cp.o.gz: init_module: No such device
insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/net/8139cp.o.gz: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
Eventually, it decides that the process failed, and then continues to boot normally.
If anyone has any suggestions as to how to get my internet connection working, I would really appreciate your help!!
