have you been able to activate your network card? I am using Slackware 9.0 and I have a USB "Teledat Fast Ethernet" card which uses the module pegasus. This network card has been detected and activated at boot time automatically by Suse, Redhat and Mandrake. However, I can't get it work under Slackware. The module 'pegasus' is loaded with no problems, also the usb modules are all correct. But when I type 'ifconfig eth0 up', nothing happens. I even recompiled the kernel with the drivers built into it. The card is detected, no problem. But the light of the card doesn't blink.

Could you please tell me how you've been able to manage to get this card up and running? Many thanks in advance.

yes, pegasus works fine.. I'm on the internet now!

no worries.. here we go!

1st: try using eth1 instead.

2nd: try editing /etc/resolv.conf - put in
search []
nameserver - sub these with your nameserver values (even dynamic IPs have these) - contact your isp for these if you don't know them, or if you have a windows comp, use that to figure them out (windows has its uses)

and then /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf

[leave every other option blank]

dhcp="yes" for eth0 (and maybe eth1 - try both - then figure out which it uses, then delete other)

then reboot

should work.
