I just installed VL5.9-Light-Final and could not connect to the Internet on account of me having a Davicom eth card.

That was fixed in VL-Live, a first among Slackwares. Why was it not put into this light version?

Otherwise initial reaction to Light, great. It is just what I need. Might go for it.

The module is in the kernel.

There are a couple Davicom Ethernet cards, maybe stating which
one it is? Like the the Model number. Maybe the module that the
card uses.

How do you fix the problem, modprobe or something else?

That would help with possibly finding an answer.

It is called PRO200 by CNet.

I have reported that a few times on this forum.

--rmmod tulip
--modprobe dmfe
--blacklist tulip instead of dmfe in /etc/module.d/blacklist
--in rc.modules enable dmfe modprobe

That would help with possibly finding an answer.

It was uelsk8 who fixed it for the live CD.
