Newbie on troubles...
I installed Debian on my pc and have some troubles making it work. Does anybody can give me a clue about how to proceed?
Here are the problems:
1) NETWORK CARD NOT RECOGNIZED.
I am connected to a LAN with a static IP address. I am using a "SMC EZ PCI 10/100 Fast Ethernet Network Card, Series SMC1255TX/LP".
When installing Debian, the network card wasn't recognized.
I found that there are Linux drivers downloadables from SMC website, but I don't know if they would work on Debian, and I have no idea how I could install them.
Somebody told me that this card uses tulip (?). Why then it wasn't recognized?
2) DISPLAY TOO LARGE ON STARTX.
I have a SAMTRON 16V 17" (1280x1024 but using 1152x864 under Windows). The depth of 24 bits/pixel didn't work on it, so I got Debian working in 16 bit/pixel.
The display looked too big when starting Debian (the login box covers almost all the screen!). Then, I ran dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 to modify the resolution, but anything changed after rebooting.
3) PC STALLED WHEN LOGGING OUT.
When I log out from my session (kde environment), the pc gets stalled.
The only way to make it work is reseting it (which it sends the shutdown signal). Was something not correctly installed?
Should I install Debian again, or where should I look for to fix the problem?
