Gentoo on a Toshiba Tecra 8100
Hey, I want to install Gentoo on my Old laptop.
But the problem is, I cant figure out what kind of Network Card I have.
At the moment I have a PCMCIA card a Belkin F5D7010.
But as I and you also might know does Belkin just wrap a Chipset from another company in there Devices.
So I have no idea how to indentefy what kind of Chipset it is.
I tryed lspci (I know thats pci listing) and that shows Unknown Network Card.
And well lspcmcia doesnt work/exist..
Is there a way to install Gentoo on this Device? (Using Inet..)
Or should I just get a new PCMCIA card? (If so is there one that has Wifi AND RJ-45/Ethernet? that runs just out of the box?)
Anyhelp will be great.
Now I also notice that the screen turns off when I am typing.. :/ This isnt when I run Windows on it..
Can that be a Kernel Error or something?
