Network card issue
 
Having attempted a Slackware 14 KDE installation, going through the various configuring options, I configured my network for DHCP but it seems the installation has not seen the on-board LAN (enabled in the BIOS) port, hence no internet connection through my ADSL router.


Which KDE utilities can I use to see if the installation has installed LAN drivers?

go to the console and type "ifconfig" you should see lo (local loopback) and usually something to the tune of eth0 listed. If they are both there, then your drivers are loaded. If not you need to track down why it didn't load. You can post the output of ifconfig and lspci, that would help.

Hi

You can try (in superuser) the
Code:

lspci -v
and look for your card and see if there is any "Kernel driver in use".

Then you can try the
Code:

ifconfig -a
and look for your card again.

What option did you choose at install (i suppose dhcp) ?
