Can't get internet in my room under slackware
I've got a broadband connection. And my modem has USB and Ethernet connections. My dads computer with winxp is connected via USB. And i've got a 20m long network cable connected to the modem and this computer. I can access the internet fine if i boot into knoppix (which i'm on now) but not in slackware it just goes Unknown host www.google.com if i try to go to google in konqueror. Also i tried asking on IRC, but it won't llet me connect
Unknow host irc.freenode.net, maybe you mispelled it?
or something like that, in x-chat. Can someone help?
can you ping a site or another computer using its ip address? e.g. for google, try this:
ping -c 4 188.8.131.52
nameserver address_of_the_dns_serverLife is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
Ok thanks, i'll try pinging it later.
about the dns server bit, how do i find out what it is, because i don't know
Ok, i try pinging it and it just goes "Network is unreachable" and on this comp (winxp) i typed ipconfig /all and got the dns server is "10.0.0.138" so i type nameserver 10.0.0.138 and it just says -bash: nameserver: command not found so i logged in as root and did it, same thing. Any ideas?

my first question would be does slackware even see your ehternet card?
edit: you are in IRC ... i will try you thereOld Skewl - AMD Athlon XP 1600+ / 512mb / 160gb / nVidia GeForce 4 4800ti 128mb / openSUSE 10.0 / 2.6.13-15 / (puter geek . linux noob)
nameserver is not a command. You add the "nameserver whatever" (without the quotes) in the /etc/resolv.conf file.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
Nope, still didn't do anything, how do i check my nameserver thingy?
I think just running DHCP might do the trick... Try running 'netconfig' as root and select 'DHCP' when asked. You might have to restart...Stumbling around the 'net:

What's the make and model of your NIC? If it works with Knoppix out of the box, it shouldn't be that hard to get it up and running with Slack.Debian Jessie x86_64 & armhf :: LibreELEC is the solution for your Linux-based HTPC setups.
