there u r, ur net is not configured, do netconfig
I have run the netconfig several times. During installation the netconfig already ran once isn't it?

And later I did run it agin. It simply ask me to enter hostname and domain name, choose between Static IP, DHCP, and something else(which I choosed DHCP). Then select Okay. And after that nothing happened and still only the 'lo' there.

I did that too, eth0 does show up in ifconfig afterward but does not get a IP address. I will put on the output later if you need.

Your MAC address remains the same for both Windows and Linux.

You say you have two nics, does eth0 refer to the nic you are actually using? You might have your ethernet cable plugged into eth1.

You are very right! I did make a stupid mistake. Since under mandrake my onboard nic is always eth0 so I assumed it is. I will update my journal later tonight.

MAC address is nic physical address. By default it's the same on all OSes. However, it can be changed /"spoofed"/ temporarily by some mechanisms.

You got the modules part correct, but ...
Code:
bruce@silas:~$ cat /etc/slackware-version 
Slackware 10.2.0
bruce@silas:~$ uname -a
Linux silas 2.6.15.6 #1 Thu Mar 9 17:29:07 CST 2006 i686 athlon-4 i386 GNU/Linux
bruce@silas:~$ cat /etc/rc.d/rc.netdevice
cat: /etc/rc.d/rc.netdevice: No such file or directory
I believe they are here:
Code:
ls -lh /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/net/
Slackware has no /etc/rc.d/rc.netdevice. Might this be your BSD?
If someone else already corrected this, or I'm wrong, sorry ...

diego_cn,

How come the thread title is [Journal]Ride to linux with Slackware(1)
but your first post title says [Journal]Ride to linux with Slackware(2) ?
Have I missed the first journal?

And you might be interested in this repository:
http://www.slackware.com/~alien/

Especially something for your DVD images of Slackware. I rsync Slackware -current
with his script which will make 2 CD iso images and/or a DVD iso image.

Good of you to document your journey. I haven't read it closely, it just came
up in a Google search. However, I will later. Especially like your quote:
Quote:
"When you know Slackware, you know Linux... when you know Red Hat, all you know is Red hat."
I learned that firsthand after trying RedHat 6.0 in 1999, and then actually
using RedHat 9.0 in 2003. About two months was all I could stand of it.

Long live Slackware Linux!

Actually, AxeZ is right...! The file /etc/rc.d/rc.netdevice will be created when you let Slackware look for a network card during installation. If it finds one, it will suggest to write a line "/sbin/modprobe <card driver>" into that file.
