No joy, ifconfig eth0 still gives device not found error. I appreciate the time you are spending on this. Thank you.

I didn't see anything in dmesg related to eth0. Please bear with me (I can be a little slow at this).

Unless I did something wrong, that didn't work. I'm not sure what you mean by register the file.

should I have removed the -plus2e.dtb

in /boot/uEnv.txt

or file sun8i-h3-orangepi-pc.dtb rename as sun8i-h3-orangepi-plus2e.dtb and move in /boot/dtb/

Ok, that is what I thought. I downloaded the file and renamed it as you said. I then copied it to /boot/dtb. I also added the line to the uEnv.txt file. I did not remove the original file in /boot/dtb. Should I have removed it? I ask because the ethernet card is still not working.

ok, simplify,
return the file /boot/uEnv.txt to the primary state, and rename the attached file to the one in /boot/dtb/
and try to boot.

That made a difference! ifconfig -a now shows my eth0 card. I still can't connect to the network. DHCP seems to be trying to connect to ipv6 only. I think my ISP only does ipv4. I thank you for all the assistance, but I have to pack it in for now. My old eyes are starting to cross and I have to be up early to spoil great grand babies tomorrow. I will tackle the problem again in the afternoon tomorrow.

I stand in awe of your ability. I have downloaded and re-installed the system with the new image. Everything booted up normally and the eth0 was detected. It still was not getting an ip address from my router, but I have discovered that for some reason inet1 (dhcpcd) is not running on boot. I have to issue /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 start each time I reboot the system. Do that gives me a valid connection. I'm in the process now of completing a full installation of Slackware (or breaking the system completely). Once I had a network connection, I ran ntp to get the clock set, then I pointed slackpkg at on of the mirrors and did slackpkg update and slackpkg install-new. I don't know if that is the correct method or if it will work, but at least now I know how to start over with a fresh install that works. Thank you.

the update source must be slackwarearm-current in /etc/slackpkg/slackpkg.conf
http://slackware.uk/slackwarearm/slackwarearm-current/
or
