I have a fresh Slack 8.1 installed on a Compaq Proliant 1600.
Everything went fine and I was able to access the net having the NIC
The goal of this installation is to have snort/mysql runnig on it.
So I downloaded and compiled the libpcap needed by snort.
Rebooted the machine and noticed that there is no more ip received
from DHCP server .I know that I have to put this card in promiscuos
mode but right now I can't access the net in search for fixes for this
lsmod show the tlan module loaded .
the second card is a 3C905 with a static ip on it. Also displayed on
Any help is apreciated
