I know there has been a lot of disucssion around this topic, but none
seem to have helped me.
I have a Suse 8.1 Professional linux box, and have recently acquired a
netgear DG824 ADSL modem gateway and router. I am trying to get an ip
address from the dhcp server, now thats where the problem starts.
I have tried a number of things,
1: Let linux get an ip address, it tells me that etho .... FAILED when
I boot, even though I still get an ip address, when I start the KDE it
2: I have assigned my linux box a hard coded IP adress with in the
range set by the router(192,168.0.51), and have told the router to
always assign the same ip address to the mac address and setup my
gateway configs. Still it does not work.
I suspect the problem, has something to do with the fonts and xfs,
although in my XFreeConfig, the Fontpath is /usr/X11R6/.....
I have also updated XFree to 4.3.0 for suse (the one off the suse)
Any ideas, would be welcome, as I am about to throw suse out. Is this
something 8.2 is going to sort out.
