    So I've been playing with Fedora today at work and while booting kuduza (hardware wizard) came up and bitched about my onboard lan, which I hadn't touched...I just removed a SCSI controller. So it kept coming up at boot so I told it to ignore the lan card, now I can't use it and there doesn't seem to be a key to press to get back into the wizard.

    How can I remove the "ignore" status on the lan card?

    Also, I'm thinking of trying a different distro -- I'm trying to run software from an ollld HP-UX server, I've pulled everything over and when trying to run the programs I get "cannot execute binary file." I assume it is looking for a C compiler/interpreter or something - what is the best distro for this type of thing? I don't need something GUI but something with the best support for multiple languages.

    Thanks!

    as root, run:

    redhat-config-network

    Edit: I guess kudzu won't do it since you told it to ignore.

    Gentoo is easily the best developers distro... is that what you're looking for?

    Yep, Gentoo's great if you know what you're doing and have tons of time to fuck around and get it working.

    I am pretty sure that HP-UX never ran any i386 hardware....which is what I am guessing that you are using now. This means that all of the old binaries that you are copying over were compiled for a different architecture. This means that no combination of libraries is going to get them to run. Unless there are some hardware simulation tools that have been written I think that your best bet would be to find the source of the binaries and recompile them for the proper hardware and libs.

    This will ensure the best stability and speed since the programs will be compiled to support all of the new features in your proc.

    I hope that made sense. :o

    Calling an OS gay because of your inept abilities to configure it?

    You edit the /etc/sysconfig/hwconf and completely remove the lines pertaining to your onboard nic. And run kudzu again.

    Or if you're a lazy bastard like me, just disable the NIC in the BIOS so the OS can't see it.
