Hi, I just installed redhat 9.0 on my machine and i am very new to linux. I Live on a college campus with an ethernet connection to the internet. I have set up the proper network config but it still won't allow me to get online. I don't know if redhat picked the wrong card for me, it looks correct. I am unsure how to fix this.

My second problem is that the audio does not work. When you plug in the speakers you can kinda here something come out. but when you go to change the volume in system it said there is audio card detected. How do I get linux to see this?

For the network, you can use the command:


To see if your card is started.

The results of ifconfig should look something like this:
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:E0:81:00:14:9B
         inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
         RX packets:17187 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
         TX packets:15608 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
         collisions:26 txqueuelen:100
         RX bytes:14271421 (13.6 MiB)  TX bytes:3336818 (3.1 MiB)
         Interrupt:21 Base address:0x4000

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
         inet addr:  Mask:
         UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
         RX packets:84 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
         TX packets:84 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
         collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
         RX bytes:5754 (5.6 KiB)  TX bytes:5754 (5.6 KiB)

The command

/etc/init.d/network restart

will restart the network system ... maybe it will work after restarting.
For sound, issue the command:


Do you hear sound from the sound test?
All commands should be entered from a Menu > System Tools > Terminal window while in Gnome or KDE.
