I installed rc8 last week, and it worked pretty well. The only thing I've changed since last going online with it is installing quake (which didn't quite work).
Now, cardctl ident and cardctl scheme seem to recognize my cf memory card and cf ethernet card (Hawking); but the gui lan/wifi manager won't switch schemes (it doesn't hang, but it just sits there).
The sd/cf manager will allow me to add it to the taskbar, but whenever I try to use it, it halts. I can't mount my cf memory card or use my ethernet card--even though all the lights go on and blink like it's transmitting, ifconfig says there's no eth0. Was it my attempted quake install, or a pod people invasion?
