***need help again, see my last post***
are you getting your ip address dynamically through DHCP? You may just need to throw a line in your /etc/resolv.conf file telling it what dns server(s) to use
Did SuSE detect your network card?
it detected a DSL modem, so i'm assuming it detected the card, it did not, however, detect what type of modem it was, neither was it able to get an online update.
how can i see the list of detected/undetected hardware
actually i just looked, it does detect my network card.
i cant find that resolv.cnfig file in the /etc directory
If you go into YaST and select the "Network Devices" tab, there is a control panel for your network card and a control panel for DSL. I've never used the DSL one (since my internet comes through a router and I just connect to that), but I would imagine it has options for setting up PPP and DHCP, depending which your ISP uses.
yea, don't worry about the resolv.conf file until you have all of your hardware setup correctly. If you are DHCP it will fill in your nameservers for you
i'm also using a router, well actually a ethernet switch, so how should i configure it?
ha ha i'm posting from linux!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111 one
i got it, thanks guys, if i get into any more trouble i'll ask u
I'm always posting from Linux
ok, i need help again, i'm now trying to install linux on my OTHER pc, it boots up but when i choose the option to install it in the first screen, as soon as it goes to the next one, with the progress bar and the option to hit F2 for details, it freezes, the resolution of the monitor also gets out of whack. does this mean i have to load the video card drivers from a floppy first?
what kind of video card? I know on one machine of mine, the setup took a long time to finally load up, but if i just let it sit for a few minutes, it would finally find whatever it was trying to detect.
I've had that problem in the past when installing SuSE, but it just booted up in textmode and started the non-graphical version of the installer
ATI linux drivers suck ass too
i just waited and it loaded fine
They do indeed, but I don't think that's what causes the problem with the bootscreen, since that's framebuffering, not X
