Topic: Internet connecting

Posted by fhfhfof on Nov. 20 2003,22:33When I give the options noapic nosmp at bootup to the kernel, it goes into some sort of loop after "Configuring network interfaces"- something about eth0 not resetting after 10ms, and it won't start the shell or GUI or anything else. How do I fix this? (PS- I finally got a readable CD.)

Posted by fhfhfof on Nov. 21 2003,12:18I use a cable modem/10-100 Ethernet to connect. I don't know if I'm using DHCP, but in Knoppix, my Ethernet card was set up automatically without me having to type in IP adresses and the like. However, I did have to give the options noapic nosmp for it to connect.
