Thanks to the people that helped me get the modules compiled into the kernel
for the NICs.
I've compiled in: eepro100 and 8139too
Now, all i want to do atm is to get the first NIC (eepro100) onto the
network, then ill follow with the second (eventually, the first NIC will
goto the network, the second will goto an Ethernet ADSL modem)...
Anyway...I've done this to configure them so far:
alias eth0 eepro100
alias eth1 8139too
root$ ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast
I think the NIC is using the right module in the kernel, because when i try:
ping 192.168.0.200 (my machine) the lights on the switch flash, and so do
the lights on the NIC...but the problem is, the machine doesn't get any
Also, while setting up the LFS system, I thought that the book told us how
to install TCP/IP utils, eg: tcpdump.
Yet when i try: root$ tcpdump it says command not found...maybe i was just
imagining installing some package with these cmds in it?
