Debian Configuration :: /etc/network/interfaces: Ra0 Or Wlan0?

Mar 30, 2010

I had one of those random system deaths, so reinstalled squeeze (daily netinst image I think...) on my eee 1000, which uses an rt2860 wireless chip. The new install only installed 2.6.32, which I had been avoiding using because of a few problems, including it dealing with networking slightly differently. I couldn't get it to work - even without encryption - using wicd. Having had a read of [URL]... , I had a look at /etc/network/interfaces, which read; This file describes the network interfaces available on your system and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

[code]...

ra0 is now called wlan0, as far as I'm aware. I've read in several places that it is best to expunge this file of all references to wifi, so I removed the bottom section (after '# The primary network interface'). I still got nothing. However, if I go ahead and change the 'ra0's to 'wlan0's, it seems to work - wicd connects. Not very familiar with Debian (spent more time on SUSE. Drop your tomatoes - I like it. Any idea what is happening? Is what I'm doing wrong? Conversely, is the file wrong? Should it be reported? Against which package? Including any particular files?

Debian Configuration :: How To Get /etc/network/interfaces To See Usb Wifi

Jun 16, 2010

I have a netgear wg111t that is running with ndiswrapper. It has an atheros chipset, but calling it ath0 didn't work.

Heres /etc/network/interface :

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system

Debian Configuration :: Multiple Network Interfaces With VirtualBox?

Mar 29, 2010

I have a rather urgent problem with my network, I got two virtual network interfaces one internal and one external. The problem is; I can't get connection to internet. The external NIC is set as a NAT and the internal is... internal.

/etc/network/interfaces
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
address 192.168.1.200
netmask 255.255.255.0

Running with this configuration makes my internet connect go away, however if I remove the configuration for eth1 everything is working fine.

Debian Configuration :: Network / Interfaces Allow-hotplug And Auto?

Jan 10, 2011

I was just wondering if there's any point having both auto and allow-hotplug against the same interface in network/interfaces as allow-hotplug seems to bring an interface up at boot on its own.

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze Hanging At Configuring Network Interfaces

Dec 20, 2010

Alright, every time I boot or shutdown my routing box, it hangs at configuring and deconfiguring network interfaces. Below is my interfaces file. I see no errors or warnings in my log and I am running a pure kernel, not tainted with proprietary drivers. All of my hardware is 100% supported.

Debian Configuration :: Ifconfig Wasn't Displaying The Same Information That Resides In /etc/network/interfaces File

Aug 14, 2011

i recently started sockets programming. In the process i began to look for relevant network information about my computer and realized that ifconfig wasn't displaying the same information that resides in my /etc/network/interfaces file. On the interfaces file my IP address is 192.168.1.109 for interface eth0 but ifconfig displays 192.168.1.101. I was under the impression that ifconfig got its information from the interfaces file but clearly doesn't. I tried re configuring the device with ifconfig and then disabling and re enabling the device with ifdown and ifup so that the device updated its information but it didn't.

CentOS 5 :: Kickstart With Unknown Number Of Network Interfaces

Nov 23, 2010

we use for the installation of our machines bladelogic. We have different servers. Some servers have only one network interface, but it can be 2, 4 or may be more. There is always one network device for using PXE, but it is not always eth0.Is there any way to run kickstart without the entering of the PXE-Device so, that kickstart checks all the network devices in the system?

OpenSUSE Network :: Network Manager Default Connection Can Handle Virtual Interfaces?

Jun 7, 2011

I've not found how to configure more than one ip address with network manager.Nor with kde nor with plasmoid network manager.I need several virtual ip addresses for eth0 when the "default" of eth0 is connected i.e. "Connected to Auto eth0" should initialize the virtual interfaces.I have not found no even how to configure the ip address.I think this will be used from ifup config in yast or not?There I have the virtual interfaces but they are not taken from network manager.And last but no least: Is it possible that when using network manager the eth0 is enabled even no user has logged in?

Debian Configuration :: Bridge Network - Two Virtual Hosts?

Apr 1, 2011

I have a debian squeeze box with dual NICs that I'm trying to configure with two virtual hosts. I'd like to have one of these machines act as a router for the 2nd NIC so I can plug in a switch and have a separate subnet.

Something like:
- Openwrt router 192.168.1.1 (firewall/vpn/stats for 192.168.1.0/24 domain)
- KVM machine with 2 NICs (192.168.1.2)
- Virtual machine #1 has a fixed IP of 192.168.1.3 (virtual nic)
- Virtual machine #2 has a fixed IP of 192.168.1.4 (virtual nic) but also controls the 2nd nic and routes 192.168.80.0/24

I'd like to use the 192.168.80.0/24 network for testing equipment without poisoning my existing network.

OpenSUSE Network :: Outgoing Traffic When Using Virtual Interfaces Changed In OS 11.4

Jun 9, 2011

There is a big problem with opensuse 11.4 and virtual interfaces.Until 11.2 outgoing traffic by default was sent by the eth0 address nevertheless which virtual interfaces did exist if any was used.Now there seems to be sent by the last interface listed with ifconfig.The outgoing address in this case will be 10.0.0.3.This is very problematic with smtp control etc.

Debian Configuration :: Use A Network Bridge To Connect Virtual Machine?

Jul 26, 2011

I'm attempting to use a network bridge to connect my virtual machine, like so:

[Code]...

The issue is that when I type the following command, I get the further following horrible error message that doesn't seem to really point me to anywhere and I can't seem to find any relevant information to my problem on the web:

root@darkstacks:~# qemu-system-i386 -hda test.img -m 128 -curses -net nic -net tap,ifname=tap0 warning: could not configure /dev/net/tun: no virtual network emulation

Does anyone have any idea what I need to do here? My processor does not have the vmx flag, as it's a 2.4GHz P4. I don't know if that might have something to do with it.

Networking :: Make A Network Interfaces Configuration Immutable?

Mar 24, 2011

Similar to the linux command "chattr +i filename", I would sure like to set my eth0 interface immutable. so once I assign the eth0 interface's IP and gateway, make it stay set until I say otherwise.

this way, I can run dhclient or Networkmanager on another interface without having to fret that it may alter this interface. is there something out there that can do this?

Debian Configuration :: Partitioning The Four Individual Drives To Get Maximum Performance / Space From Them?

Jan 25, 2011

I've got 4 identical 1 TB drives and would like to use them in a software RAID configuration on my home server. I'm running Debian Linux using 'mdadm' utility to manage the software RAID. I don't know how much I've read is fact or dated or even false so I decided I would ask here to get help from people who know more about this than I do. This is essentially just a file server machine to store all my data so being that I've got four identical SATA hard drives, I was thinking about doing RAID level 5. I guess I'll start here and ask if that is the recommended level of RAID. I think RAID level 5 will be fine for my general server usage. My second issue is partitioning the four individual drives to get maximum performance / space from them. Basically just asking here how would you or you recommend I partition the drives? I was thinking about doing three seperate partitions per drive:

/dev/sda1 = 4 GB (swap)/dev/sda2 = 1 GB (/boot)/dev/sda3 = 995 GB (/Now from that partition schema above, obviously all the types will be 'fd' for RAID and the partition for /boot is going to be bootable. My confusion is that I read Grub doesn't support booting from RAID 5 since Grub can't handle disk assembly. If /dev/sdx2 (sda2, sdb2, sdc2, sdd2) are partitioned for /boot (bootable), how would you guys configure this RAID to match up equally? I don't think I do a RAID level 1 on 4 identical partitions, right?

Debian Configuration :: How To Modify Traffic Between Two Interfaces In Linux

Aug 8, 2015

I have a laptop connected to internet via wlan0. I also have eth0 interface and with it I share internet. I want to modify/filter all the traffic passing by the first laptop, something like this:

Code: Select all                    *---------------------------*
                    |        LAPTOP 1           |      *--------------* ?
                    |-----*    *------*    *----*      |              |
    INTERNET<------>|wlan0|<-->|MY_APP|<-->|eth0|<---->|ANOTHER LAPTOP|
                    |-----*    *------*    *----|      |              |
                    *---------------------------*      *--------------*

I know that in FreeBSD it is possible to use ipfw for that purpose, because it build-in into kernel. We set for example rule Code: Select allipfw add divert 2000 ip from any to 1.0.1.1

and we can use our own application to process those packets, reinject them forward etc. It will work also fast, because as I said, it build into kernel.

Is there any standart Linux-based solution to do the same? I found some info about netmap-ipfw. Is this a correct solution? Or I have to use for example IP-aliases and iptables to do that?

I need to process all the IP-packets, not only TCP/UDP/etc-protocol. Solution also must be very fast.

Debian Configuration :: Bringing Up Wireless Interfaces At Boot Also

May 11, 2010

My new Squeeze machine detects all of my hardware including the LAN and WLAN cards, but only brings up the LAN card. There isn't even an entry for it in /etc/network/interfaces for me to modify. I tried adding the info manually but then the entire network wouldn't start. I had it configured as a static IP and I know the commands were correct due to them working on the LAN card. I believe that the name "wlan0" was causing the problem, but how else can I bring it up at boot?

General :: Maximum Number Of Partitions With EFI?

Jul 5, 2011

I was wondering what is the maximum number of partition on an GPT-partitionned drive under Linux. The GPT partition table can contain up to 128 partitions, but the device nodes for /dev/sda? (as described here, block device of major number 8) only allow /dev/sda1 up to /dev/sda15. Does that means that there cannot be more that 15 partitions on a drive, even on a GPT-partitionned drive?

Fedora :: Maximum Number Of Files In Ext3 ?

May 26, 2010

Is there a limit to the number of files ext3 can support?

Reason I'm asking is because on one of my internal drives, I have around 750,000 files. The drive is 500Gb and currently using 150Gb... I noticed recently that when I try to copy a new directory or file, the transfer rate is extremely slow at times. It is sataII and sometimes it gets as low as 500kb/s (yes, kb!)

Would somebody please shed some light?

I noticed it might be related to the process gvfsd-metadata

I'm using Fedora 12 64-bit

The transfer is from an ext3 to ext3 filesystem.

Ubuntu :: Getting Maximum Number Of Clients Reached?

Feb 18, 2010

In the last week or so, I've frequently been running out of X server client connection slots and getting "Maximum number of clients reached" errors. For example, I'm getting it right now and I'm running 3 pterms, Chrome, and Thunderbird; I've even killed my panel. 'xwininfo -root -children' produces what seems to be an absurd number of X clients (150-ish, when it's able to make a connection), even immediately after Gnome/Xfce startup.

It doesn't take long. A day at most. I've had this system up and running for months, and this just started happening. I did install some X development libraries (x11proto-core-dev, libmotif-dev, x11proto-print-dev, and x11proto-xext-dev plus their dependencies) about two weeks ago, but this problem has not been happening that long. I've installed other packages, but nothing that would seem to have any relation to this problem. I've logged out and in, rebooted, and changed from Gnome to Xfce, and none of the changes helped.

General :: Maximum Number Of Files Per Folder?

I would like to ask you if there is any maximum allowed number of files per folder in linux (without risking it to lose everything). I am using openuse 11.4 with latest kde (4.6?).

I am trying something fast and dirty and it might be that one folder will contain like 10^6 files.

Is there is anything I should be warned about that?
