    mm not much help

    you should blacklist the pcihp and shpchp modules in /etc/hotplug/blacklist

    and you should upgrade to kernel 2.6

    (it is on the 2nd cd as a package in testing)


    come back after you've done that , and then give us a dmesg again.

    its certainly not picking it up at the moment, but you should be using a 2.6 kernel for more hardware support really

    in my opinion.

    "you should blacklist the pcihp and shpchp modules in /etc/hotplug/blacklist"

    i have no idea what this means....

    also, in the second cd there is no testing/ dir there is

    Code:
    gmp@mshome:/mnt/cdrom$ ls
    CHECKSUMS.md5  CHECKSUMS.md5.asc  FILELIST.TXT  README.TXT  linux-2.6.13/  slackware/
    gmp@mshome:/mnt/cdrom$
    (dont ask me why my hostname is mshome..because i dont know...)

    my bet the 2.6 kernel would be in linux-2.6.13/ wouldnt ya think...

    Code:
    gmp@mshome:/mnt/cdrom/linux-2.6.13$ ls
    README.initrd                             kernel-headers-2.6.13-i386-1.txt
    alsa-driver-1.0.9b_2.6.13-i486-1.tgz      kernel-headers.WARNING

    kernel-generic-2.6.13-i486-1.tgz.asc      kernel-source-2.6.13-noarch-1.tgz
    kernel-generic-2.6.13-i486-1.txt          kernel-source-2.6.13-noarch-1.tgz.asc
    kernel-headers-2.6.13-i386-1.tgz          kernel-source-2.6.13-noarch-1.txt
    kernel-headers-2.6.13-i386-1.tgz.asc
    gmp@mshome:/mnt/cdrom/linux-2.6.13$
    i know the slackware package thing in .tgz and the is kernel-source-2.6.13-noarch-1.tgz
    should i just use pkgtool and install all of those things?

    I'd upgrade the 2.4 modules and package to 2.6

    and if you notice your dmesg there are a load of errors regarding those two modules I told you to blacklist, and where to blacklist.

    thats another matter completely though.

    and yes, they are the packages for 2.6 kernel. remember to use the 2.4 headers though, as you are supposed to use the same kernel headers that the glibc you run was compiled _on_.

    its not hard to upgrade to 2.6 via packages, instead of using 'pkgtool' why dont you learn how to use package tools 'install/upgrade/removepkg'

    what does 'cat /etc/HOSTNAME' say?

    you probably setup your hostname wrong thinking it was the xp workgroup name.

    Ok, so which of these do i install?
    and i can install packages by going installpkg packagename.tgz is that what you mean

    Code:
    gmp@mshome:/mnt/cdrom/linux-2.6.13$ ls
    README.initrd                             kernel-headers-2.6.13-i386-1.txt
    alsa-driver-1.0.9b_2.6.13-i486-1.tgz      kernel-headers.WARNING
    alsa-driver-1.0.9b_2.6.13-i486-1.tgz.asc  kernel-modules-2.6.13-i486-1.tgz
    alsa-driver-1.0.9b_2.6.13-i486-1.txt      kernel-modules-2.6.13-i486-1.tgz.asc
    kernel-generic-2.6.13-i486-1.tgz          kernel-modules-2.6.13-i486-1.txt
    kernel-generic-2.6.13-i486-1.tgz.asc      kernel-source-2.6.13-noarch-1.tgz
    kernel-generic-2.6.13-i486-1.txt          kernel-source-2.6.13-noarch-1.tgz.asc
    kernel-headers-2.6.13-i386-1.tgz          kernel-source-2.6.13-noarch-1.txt
    kernel-headers-2.6.13-i386-1.tgz.asc
    gmp@mshome:/mnt/cdrom/linux-2.6.13$
    gmp@mshome:~$cat /etc/HOSTNAME
    mshome.gmp
    gmp@mshome:~$

    theres the hostname thingy

    there you go then, your hostname is wrong, edit it.


    as for the kernel, init 1, then install the kernel-generic/kernel-modules pkg's , and remove the 2.4 ones. but do not install the kernel-source, or kernel-headers 2.6 packages.

    then remove kernel-generic and kernel-modules packages for _2.4_

    make sure you can "lilo -v" with no errors to replace the MBR, and check the /boot/vmlinuz symlink to see if it points to 2.6 and not 2.4

    once you've done that, see if your new kernel loads and then give us your dmesg/lsmod/ again

    thanks!
