Ok, I have a few issues here.
1. I cannot get my linksys 10/100 ethernet card to work. I've downloaded tulip.c, but cannot get it to compile, which brings me to my next problem.
2. I cannot get my dos2unix program to install using rpm. On the command line I type rpm -i -v dos2unix-blah-blah.src.rpm When the debugging info comes up it shows that it finds 1 program to install, but then it says that it can't find anything to download?
3. I cannot get my x-windows to work. I have the SiS530 video card. I just ftp'd over the newest version of xfree86, and uncompressed all the files using gzip -d. This left me with a bunch of .tar files that I cannot seem to uncompress. I try using tar -x *.tar, and tar -x filename.tar and both just hang. I see the preinst.sh file, but don't know what to do with it.
4. My printer does not work. I am using a HP deskjet 710c. When I try to print something, I don't get an error, and it tells me the file is printing, but nothing comes out? heheh
I know I'm asking a lot here. I'de really appreciate it if you guys can help me out (If I have to ask one of the guys on campus for help I'll never hear the end of it)
Oh ... by the way, I'm using Mandrake 6.something
