I'm a newcomer to Debian from FreeBSD, and have a couple of questions
some of you guys may know the answer to:
1 - I keep getting console messages about
'eth0: link up, 100Mbps, full duplex, lpa 0x41E1' and
'eth0: link down'. These two messages alternate regularly.
When the link is down, of course I cannot connect to anything.
Also, how do I avoid getting these annoying messages?
2 - Doing a 'man-k <some_command>' (or man -f <some_command>) does not work.
Is there a misconfiguration somewhere?
3 - How do I go backwards in a man page reading? Looks like 'more' is used to
page the ouput to screen, but 'b' or ^B does not work here.
Silly question, maybe...
I am running Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 with linux kernel 2.4.20 (latest stable).
The NIC is a AMD PCnet32, and gets it's IP from an ADSL router by DHCP.
Here's some dmesg ouput:
pcnet32.c:v1.27b 01.10.2002 firstname.lastname@example.org
pcnet32: PCnet/FAST 79C971 at 0x7800, 00 60 b0 f7 7a 20
pcnet32: 1 cards_found.
eth0: registered as PCnet/FAST 79C971
Grateful for any help!
