Help With Network Cards
Im new to linux and im using slackware and i recently bought a network card for my unix box. It wont load the drivers for the card and i was wondering how i could go about getting it to work. i installed the package with the drivers but still dont work. Thanks ahead for all help
please be more specific! What card do you have? What package did you attempt to install? And what is the output of [as root]
lspci | grep -i ethernet
i have a 3com 3c905-TX card i tried to install a linux driver i found for the card and i dont know what the output is
enter that command in a terminal and then post the result here.
edit: you need to be root to run this command
Just uncomment the line for your driver module in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules
it'll be something like
remove the '#' and reboot, or alternatively you could enable hotplug and udev and attempt to automatically probe the card and load the driver module.
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.udev
