Just installed the debian system for the first time, having been a
slackware fan for the last 18 months. I have minicom and X and Seyon
working, and am slowly going through all my config files; looks like it
may be debian from now on....
However, I'm stuck. I am trying to install 'slirp' on my system, and it
does not have a .deb package. So, I am using a set of gz files which, I
think, were originally set up for slakware variants.
PROBLEM: The README's talk about setting up some variables in the files
etc/rc.d/rc.inet1, and in etc/resolv.conf.
My debian /etc does not have either of the above files. I think the
equivalent of the first one is etc/init.d/network, but do I need to
simply add a new resolv.conf to my /etc directory?
Any help would be appreciated. The binary on my ISP host works fine;
however, my own system only comes back with "unknown server error" when I
try various forms of 'dip.'
My slakware system does PPP just fine; I am trying to set up
SLIRP on my new debian system, rather than PPP, for online cost reasons.
Thanks very much -
