Question Configuring fealnx.o


Hope someone can help a newbie.

I am using Redhat 8.0 and have succesfully recompiled the kernel (2.4.18-14) with fealnx.o supported internally.

In network configuration my NIC has been recognised correctly and the fealnx.o module is selected automatically.

However I can not activate the card. Im not sure what settings I need to use. Ibeleive DHCP is obtained dynamically.

(I am using a Mson MT803 NIC on an NTL 100 cable modem)

any idea's ?

Right. Managed to to get the connection running by starting dhclient manually which does not seem to run on startup. (Sytem monitor does not show it as running until I start it).

How do I make dhclient start at boot up ?

check out the script /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcg-eth0

Or something like that, its near there, and make changes to it as needed.

Cheers,

Tried that, I added "dhcp_program=/sbin/dhclient" but it make no difference.

Beats me at this point, the only redhat machine I have around is configured static and is 7.3, so the scripts might have changed with the metamorphosis that was 8.0, although if it still exists, and I'm willing to bet it is, the quickie configuration script: "netconfig" probably still exists.

Cheers,

Thanks Finegan

I will look for "netconfig" tonight when I get home.

Its not a major problem running dhclient (ive currently set up an icon to run it) but it would be nice to start it automatically.

Talking

Finally go it working after a bit of reserch.

Ive added /sbin/dhclient eth0 to /sbin/ifup and it seems to work.

No error messages, and a net connection as soon as I boot up. I don't think its the proper or "clean" way to so it, but it works for me.

If you can think of any reason why I shouldnt do it this way or if you know the correct way to do it, please let me know.
