I have a linksys 100/10 ethernet adapter that uses the tulip.c driver that i know is compatible with slackware because i read it in the compatible hardware section thingy. so my question is relatively simple. how do you configure the network card? because it doesnt work automatically.
from ifconfig -a this is what i get
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr:00:20:70:B0:87:76
Broadcast Multicast MTU:1500 Metric:1
Rx packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frames:0
Tx packets:0 errors:2 dropped:0 overruns:0 carriers:2
rx bytes:0 (0.0b) tx bytes:1180 (1.1Kb)
Interrupt:12 Base address:0xd800
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:15436 Metric:1
Rx packets:12 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frames:0
Tx packets:12 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carriers:0
Rx bytes:872 (872.0b) tx bytes:872 (872.0b)
ifconfig eth0 up
i put in ifconfig eth0 up and it goes to the next line then i put in dhclient eth0 and it says eth0 not found
The first thing is good. the second one, could you post the exact error message?
that is the exact error message, it just says stuff about the company before
then it says
eth0: not found
i have a router... does that make a difference?
I'm assuming that you have some sort of dhcp server on it?
try running your dhclient without arguments:
yes dhcp client is running on the router when i run dhclient without and arguements i get
no broadcast interfaces found - exiting
