Fwiw, I did a custom install with a whole bunch of rpms, I don't have an isapnp file anywhere, and cat /proc/isapnp yields "no such file or directory."

What does /proc/isapnp say?


I tried to find that archive but it seems that i don't have it.
please don't get mad with me it's just that i'm new to this.

What the captain means to say is for you to run

cat /proc/isapnp

and report what it says.

Like i said before. It seems like i don't have that program or file or what
ever. I'm sorry but I'm suposed to have that?

it could be posible that in the installation progress it didn't have copied?

how can i install that program?

Hmm.  I sense a breakdown in communication.  You must have "cat".  You
must have a /proc/isapnp.  "cat" is a program you execute from a
command line.  You get that by executing a "terminal" or "console"
program, or what we fondly call an "xterm".  It pops up a new window
with a prompt on the screen that will have some amount of information
followed by a "$" prompt.  Mine, for, instance, says

yak:bob(L3) ~ [1021] $

The most basic will be something like

bash 2.05 $

At that prompt, type

cat /proc/isapnp

"cat" actually means "concantenate" and is a tool to concatenate
several files (or other sources) one after another and put them on the
screen.  This is the degenerate (and most often used) case of a single
file or source.

/proc/isapnp is not a real file, but is a "pseudo file" that is really
a "hook" or a "viewport" into the kernel.  If you get a directory
listing of it:

ls -l /proc/isapnp

you get

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jan 12 20:17 /proc/isapnp

indicating it is a 0-length file.  But if you "cat" it, you get a
bunch of information.  Let us know what it is.
