everything but my network card isn't installed.

do you want me to send you the read me's so you can help me apply the drier?

re: readme

Does it say that it'll work for linux xp whatever kernel version? Does your xp install have the kernel sources either installed or available?

It doesn't say Redhat 7.3 only?

Did you try to see if skge was available on your xp install?

Well, it appears that your card might be supported by the skge module. Only thing is, I'm not sure linux xp includes it and if it doesnt, I'm not sure (I don't recall) if they included the kernel source or made it available. Perhaps you could install a new kernel if needed. But linux xp is highly proprietary and lots of stuff isn't the same as in your more traditional linux distros. It's really only good as an introduction.

But try to:

modprobe skge

and if you see no errors, look in

cat /proc/pci

or

dmesg

and see if you see any evidence that it was recognized.

If so, how do you get connected? dhcp? you could

which dhcpcd

to see if it's included or

which dhclient

and if you find one of those, run it.

Report back after this and we'll see if there's much else we can do. Unfortunately, you picked an OS as well as a lan card that are both closed sourced and proprietary. Sad

  • letsencrypt support in propellor
    I'm using the reference letsencrypt client. While I've seen complaints that it has a lot of dependencies and is too complicated, it seemed to only need to pull in a few packages, and use only a few megabytes of disk space, and it has fewer options than ls does. So seems fine. (Although it would be nice to have some alternatives packaged in Debian.)

    I’m not dead yet. And the project is still alive too. It’s been a while since the last release, so it’s time to do another. The biggest improvements were made to the rule language by introducing the rule conditions and to the CLI by introducing a new command, usbguard, for interacting with a running USBGuard daemon instance and for generating initial policies.
