Slackware 9.1 Rc.inet1 help

well ok I decided to format and go with slackware 9.1, now to my knoledge it's acutaly not 9.1's fault.. but here I go.
I backed up my old rc.inet1 and just used that.

Now ok, everything runs fine.. ./rc.inet1 NO problems. ifconfig -a NO problems..

yet I cant connect to the internet. I can ping my other computer thats connected LOCALY but not to the internet.

copy and paste the output from "ifconfig eth0" here.

Sounds like either you need to configure your dns server address or default gateway.

ping an ip address, not a hostname and see if that works.. if that works, then it's a dns problem. If that doesn't work, then ping your gateway, if that works then do a traceroute to an ip address outside.

( to add a nameserver, edit /etc/resolv.conf )

Maybe I misunderstood something, but there are quite a few differences in /etc/rc.d/ between Slackware 9.0 and 9.1. I'm not at my Slack machine right now, but if I recall correctly, Slack 9.1 uses two inet1 scripts; rc.inet1 and rc.inet1.conf or something like that. The NIC settings are stored in the second one. I don't know, but perhaps it's something to check.
