I've just started using Linux (Redhat 5.2 I think), and cannot get my
network card to function. It uses the Realtek chipset (I've set it as
NE2000 compatible), and is an ISA card. The parameters for the card are
correct (I/O address, IRQ), as they are the same as what both Win95 and
WinNT say (triple boot mahine!). Here's where it gets sticky. The
ethernet card connects to a cable modem. The machine gets its' IP
through DHCP. I've tried setting through netconf the hostname to the
talk to their servers to resolve addresses to IPs. I've tried setting
talk. I've pinged the loopback address (127.0.0.1), and it works fine,
so TCP/IP is functioning. It looks like my net card settings are fried
somewhere. During the install of Linux, it probed the card and got the
address, so I think that's OK. Any suggestions?
Also, I've got a problem with x-windows. My video card isn't seen by
probe, and when I try to configure x to use the svga server, it defaults
to vga, and I can't get enough on screen to use x. I've got a PCI
Real3D Starfighter w/8Mb. I recieved one reply to a previous post which
suggested using the svga server, which I've tried with no luck. Can't
even switch resolutions (CTRL, ALT, + right?).
Any help is welcome....
