    list of ???? SlackWare

    I installed Slackware 9.0 from cd to a asus A7N266. All in one board. I can get to the shell prompt as root#

    I read the first nailed thread and saw about the nvidia drivers. These are for the video card? I am thinking. I cannot start X. I have downloaded the drivers to a win dir I think I can access and try to run the tar.

    I am ahead of my self now and will get back later. I have a room full of pc's with that other OS . Whoooo shiver I can use to access the web.

    How or what do i use to access the web from the shell?

    hello brunix,
    lynx is a text based web browser. you should not need the nvidia drivers for X, you just won't get 3d going.

    Hello Mr. Harris

    I will have to install lynix then I suspect.

    I just ran the tar from nvidia and am having trouble checking it success. I was able to cp the tar file from dos. I am finding some of the commands have changed from SW3.0. I also thought slack supported RPM, but could not do a rpm -qa | grep kernel.

    IS that double pipes or l between qa and grep?

    My son wants to learn linux cant wait to see how his patients holds out. He may suprise me.

    it's a single pipe, || means or (like rm foo || echo "foo does not exist&quot and | means pipe to.

    The reason your rpm command fails is because slack does have rpm support but just to install things, the slack packages are not in the rpm database. I'd recommend using rpm2tgz foo.rpm to convert an rpm to a slackpackage and install with installpkg foo.tgz

    as for untaring the nvidia drivers, use tar zxvf foo.tar.gz (foo.tar.gz being the name of the file) then cd to that directory and take a look at the README or whatever.

    Good luck

    Oh and lynx or links is probably already installed.

    If lynx/links isn't installed ...

    cd /pub/slackware/slackware-9.0/slackware/n
    get lynx-2.8.4-i386-5.tgz

    Thanks for the Help

    I ran the Nvidia tar and netconfig and think my netcard is setup

    Unpacked and followed for lynx. Can find no mention of a make or install and all the readme seem to just tell me how great lynx is.

    Stupid question #1 how do I start lynx?

    Let me tell you lynx.cfg is a big file
    Waht is lynx* Should I mess with that?

    Thanks :^)

    I thought I tryed that, but I may have used a L and I need to work on my net connection again,

    lynx starts but can't connect to it remote host, back to one of my out dated books. I read something last nigh about manually inbuting subnets

    Like arnold said I'll be back

    I ran netconfig again and this time I set a static ip# of one that is not being used by me router. Tryed to run lynx again and did not see any action on my heb lights, leaving me to think that the netcard is not configed yet.

    ifconfig gives me a local loopback

    If you network card was setup, you would see something similar to this:
    root@stuart:/home/stuart# ifconfig
    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:E0:4C:B1:E8:CC
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    RX packets:42479 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:38614 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    RX bytes:24025447 (22.9 Mb) TX bytes:3750290 (3.5 Mb)

    lo Link encap:Local Loopback
    inet addr: Mask:
    UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
    RX packets:788 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:788 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    RX bytes:39652 (38.7 Kb) TX bytes:39652 (38.7 Kb)
    To assign eth0 to do:
    root@stuart:#ifconfig eth0
    I don't know how much this helps, so some more digging may be in order.
    Oh, and did you add your DNS info to /etc/resolv.conf ?
    just put in
