FAQ for Slackware?


Does this forum have a FAQ for Slackware for problems after install. I just installed 9.1 last night and had problems with sound but figured it out. But still have to use the wifes XP to connect to the internet. Any help would be great.

Sincerely,

Daniel Allan

OK doing a little work on this and I have two NIC cards on my system. An old token ring which I don't use, Compaq. But I installed a lynksys ethernet card and it is not detecting it. Still stuck but working on it.

Thank you,

Daniel Allan

If you not using your token ring card i suggest you remove it

And about you new ethernet card not beeing recognized, maybe you should check if the driver is loaded in the kernel

the token ring is integrated so i can not remove it. But looking around a bit and the linksys is loaded with the tulip mod........but

the Compaq is loading as TLAN and the linksys is being loaded as eth1. On start up Slack is trying the TLAN

How do I tell slack to use eth1??? Do I go to the start-up conf file and tell Slack to use eth1???

Sincerely,

Daniel Allan

Two possible ways of dealing with that :}

a.) Edit /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 and remove the
bit that deals with eth0 (respectively tr0)
/me sobs in the sweet memory of his old TokenRing

b.) Edit /etc/modules.conf and define the driver
of the new card to be aliased to eth0


Cheers,
Tink

Talking

Yes, I am using slack to post now

solution

I went to the /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file and uncommented the module for the linksys card(tulip) and now I am of and running.....I get a weird dhcp message on start up I will try to copy that into my next post to ensure I made the correct modification.

Thank you all for the help and I will look at disabling my token ring.

Sincerely,

Daniel Allan

you are using dhcp right?
you could just use the device name in the dhcp request.

/sbin/dhcpcd -t 10 -d eth0
or
/sbin/dhcpcd -t 10 -d eth1

maybe that will work, hope that helps.
