    10.1 Problems


    I'm am new to Linux and really sick of Windows. I just installed 10.1 on my laptop and love it, however I'm have two problems.

    1. On boot up Linux failes to bring up eth0 and eth1. When I set up the ethernet card in the Mandrake Control Center it brings the network up and it works great. When I shut down and restart linux still fails to bring up eth0 and eth1 and I have to set up the card again.

    2. I'm getting a static like sound when the KDE desk top loads and when a save as window or the like pops up.


    Any help would be great.

    For numer one, can you posts the relevant section of the dmesg command.

    Code:
    dmesg | grep eth*
    For number two, can you play other sounds, ogg, cd's, etc...? Do they sound static-ie as well?

    Thanks,

    10.1 Problems

    This is all I found on eth: using the dmesg comand, however I'm new to linux so I may not be looking in the right places.

    ip1394: eth0: IEEE-1394 IPv4 over 1394 Ethernet (fw-host0)


    Yes other sounds are fine. It only make the static sound when KDE first loads and any time a prompt window pops up (such as a save as prompt or incorrect password wimdow, etc).

    thanks for the help

    what kind of connection is this? dsl or cable? and did you indicate that you want connection to start at bootup?

    Well, as for the sound... You can simply disable sound feedback in "configure my desktop" or change the sound. I think 10.1's default sound scheme could be interpeted as static. It goes like <sound effect>errrer erer errrer</sound affect>. Whatever.

    --note to self, while ASCII art works, ASCII sounds do not--



    As for the eth... When you startup MDK, you get eth0.......[FAILED]?
