Its like Firestarter just crashed my FC4
ive been trying to install Firestarter on my FC4 since morning. I did a "yum install firestarter" but it couldnt find firestarter, so i decided to download the firestarter RPM file from the fs-security website itself.
Doing the normal rpm -Uvh......i had firestarter installed, but the GUI interface kept resulting in errors msgs about my NICs. I tested te NICs indivudually to make sure that they were working(with one disabled, the other configured with a static IP...and vice-versa) to test for internet connectivity. Each worked independent of the other, and Firestarter reported no errors on the single NICs working alone.. The problem was when both are active, I will get an error msg to test if I have internet connectivity.
I tried both cards, running the Firestarter wizard, and choosing eth0 for external while eth1 for internal and vice-versa, of-course making necessary ip changes and doing ping tests to and fro. all to no avail. still i get the error "to check for internet connectivity.
Now ive totally removed firestarter.....and my boot-up has dropped to snail speed. i even had to boot up using interactive mode, cos the thing is just damn too slow now.
pls, what could be the problem of this slowness.
