Newly installed slk11 fail on net card.


Hi, all

I newly installed slackware11 and it can read my net card. If I use"lspci",
Code:
02:05.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX (rev 02)
But I can't visit any site via my browser and if I type"ifconfig"then got only"127.0.0.1"address.

Pls help!

Thanks,

That card seems to be supported by the "b44" driver.
Try running
Code:
/sbin/modprobe b44
and then check if there is now a "eth0" network device by running
Code:
ifconfig -a
.

If so, you can tell Slackware to use the b44 driver every time when the computer boots; run these commands to create the file "/etc/rc.d/rc.netdevice" where your network driver will be loaded:
Code:
echo "/sbin/modprobe b44" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.netdevice
chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/rc.netdevice
Next time the computer boots, it will load the driver. You still might need to configure your card - I do not know if you entered IP Address, netmask, etc, or indicated that you use DHCP to get an address. If you did that already during installation, then the above steps are sufficient - try them out by rebooting your computer and checking the network availability.

Hi, Alien Bob. Thank you for help!

I did what you teach and after reboot nothing different(sorry)!But after doing"/sbin/modprobe b44", there did is now a "eth0" network device by running"ifconfig -a" but show no ip address. And I recognized that I didn't entered IP Address, netmask, etc, or indicated that I'll use DHCP to get an address for no any popup to mention them during the install process!

And there are only popup about network name and domain name, I choose"cancle"to them all.

Thank you for help once again!

Hi, Alien Bob.

This time I redo the netconfig, and solve the problem.

One more question, I fill a invalid domain name, is it OK?

Thanks for your help!
