I can't find out if GTKpod will work if it's being connected via firewire, or how well linux supports it. Anyone know of this?

Thanks
Most of the sites talking about gtkPod and firewire actually call firewire by its technical name, ieee1394. GTKPod should work with Firewire, but I've never used it myself. I did find the following, though: http://justlinux.com/forum/archive/i.../t-117827.html

You can probably ignore the script, particularly if you end up using udev (does Slackware still use devfs or dev nodes? I don't recall).

So.. I started to install Slackware 10.1 about an hour and a half ago. Everything went great! I had xorg configured and I was in KDE.

I just wish I were posting this from the computer in the house that has Linux installed. I am on my family's crappy desktop because the internet on my computer is not working. I tried a couple different settings for the path of the modem.

I don't remember what I did last time to have my internet working. I have an integrated NIC card, and I don't know what option to choose for it. What's the best way to fix this?

Also, is there an easier way to change that? I've been putting in disc 1, and reconfiguring everything, and it takes a couple minutes to get to the modem connection.

Thanks a lot!
You've been a great help so far.

Edit - I am behind a router, that probably matters.

I can't remember about the network config tool in Slack, but is your router assingning your machine an IP address by DHCP? If it is, open the /etc/rc.d/inet1.conf file (you'll have to be root to edit it) and you should see

#Config information for eth0
IPADDR[0]=""
NETMASK[0]=""
USE_DHCP[0]=""
DHCP_HOSTNAME[0]=""

There will be entries for eth1, eth2 also, but eth0 should be your integrated NIC (it is on mne).

Enter yes between the "" in the USE_DHCP[0] line and then your router's hostname between the "" in the last line. That got my Slackware machine online.

Edit: restart your machine after editing and saving the file.

HTH.

On the computer with windows installed, when I run ipconfig /all it says DHCP is enabled. It says the DHCP server is 192.168.1.1, is that what I'd put there? If not, where could I find what goes there? Also, are they looking for the ip my router assigns? Or the ip my isp assigns?

Thanks
