I am having a problem I am hoping someone can help me with.
First the details: I have a new computer I am trying to get up a running on a
home network. I had a Intel etherexpress pro 10/100 (the 82556 chip). Every site
I visited said that there are no drivers for this "A" chip. The only drivers are
for the "B" chip set(82557). I am running RH5.2 straight out the the package so
far. I went out and bought a Linksys Etherfast 10/100. I installed it and loaded
the module for the "Tulip" chipset. Several pages said that this was the right
module. When I rebooted is when all my problems started. The frist time the
computer started booting it stoped on the "Loading Sendmail." So I removed the
card. Restarted the computer booted up. Removed the Sendmail from the system
services startup. Re-installed the card. Then it locked up on "Loading SMB:
smbd". So I removed the SMB from the system services start up and it booted
fine. I can ping other computers and connect to it using other services. The
next problem is that I do a startx and get part way in but it never seems to
load FVWM2(or 95 what ever it is). I run XF86Setup and everything checks out. It
says "congrats you have a successful running X server." It appears as thought
the Windows manager is not loading. I take the card out and every thing works
fine. Is it the cheap card or do I have some major config problems that I can't
find answers to? Any help or pointers would be greatly appericated.
