If network interface not shown what would you do ?
I know this scenario are rarely happened, but i face similar situation while configuring my first actual hardware server while installing Debian on it remotely (That was pure hell), I take from me many tries and error to make Debian setup accept that hell network card(I can't even know how I did it lol)
since this sht happens here is another example, I tested Puppy-Linux(Slacko64) in Virtual machine and voilà the network utility can't see the freaking network card
After couple search attempt in google I end-up with Slackware wiki-page that assuming Linux system able to detect the network card in the first place
Is this driver(kernel module) related issue or I'm missing other steps on the process to make Linux server see the outside world ?
