Came an error message acknowledging a bug.
I sent in a substantiating bug, was told it had been reported, they
knew, and nothing more.
What *was* the bug? Prehaps it was not a show-stopper at all. It's
unlikely Fedora would ship an OS without working ethernet support.
So I skipped back to Fedora 5. No problem with install but I cant get
an internet connection. The configure screen shows eth0 to be
inactive but doesnt respond by changing it.
I'd try the latest Fedora or another distro after first giving a try at
configuring the connection manually. Prehaps the bug is in the
configurator itself. Try 'ifconfig' or 'ip' and 'route'. See the
Ethernet-HOWTO, NET3-4-HOWTO, and possibly Networking-Overview-HOWTO if
needed. How the connection is configured depends on if eth0 is linking to
the internet or an intranet. If eth0 is used for the internet, then I
think you'd use dhcp, else assigning an internal address with ifconfig and
making a route to the peer is enough. I don't use ethernet for my Internet
connection, so I'm not familiar with the dhcp commands, but ifconfig/route
is what configured the interface I'm using right now.
So I humbly go back to XP
It's even worse than I thought ;)
