These problems may be related. First.
I have a de-220 network card which I had to manually assign an irq (using ne.o). When I startup I get eth0 failed. (rh6.1). My network doesn't work. If I then run netconf, go to basic host info, then quit netconf (without changing anything), it tells me the DNS has been updated, and bingo, my network works. How can I fix this?
Second.
For some reason, when I run X, the enlightenment (GNOME) starts, I see a splash screen, then my machine hangs. I can't do anything - except turn off my computer - alt-ctrl-F keys don't work.
Please help....

What IRQ are you assigning to the card and are you certain that the IRQ is free?

What video card do you have? Ordinarily I'd say that something just isn't right with the X server, but given the above... Have you tried taking the de-220 out and trying to start X?

1. you can set the nic's irq with the command insmod, after that use ifconfig or netconfig to configure the card. and you also need to identify your card in the file /etc/conf.modules

2. try go to the users home directory and delete the file called .Xauthority and .ICEauthority
