Debian Configuration :: Wlan0 Device Not Configured?
Aug 3, 2011
I've recently installed Debian. But the wireless network is not working. In Gnome it says "Device not configured" And if i try a ifup it says: root@accroft-msi:/home/accroft# ifup wlan0Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client 4.1.1-P1Copyright 2004-2010 Internet Systems Consortium.All rights reserved.

From yesterday on, I am not able to connect my Laptop to my WiFi Router automatically when logging in to gnome desktop.
The following is the message found in /var/log/messages.
Its Lenny 5.0.4 and I can see my wifi LED ON till the gdm login page. After the login, while loading my desktop, the LED goes OFF and I have to restart the network-manager for enabling the wifi again. Why is this happening? Do I have to change the configuration settings in /etc/dbus-1/system.d/ to fix this. I really don't know what change needs to be done there and where.
The same day when this problem started while logging in I got an error message from nautilus. The screen-shot is attached with this mail. Does this error have anything to do with the network issue?
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).
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?
I'm having problems getting my wireless network working. The same problem exists in both Debian 5.04 and Ubuntu 8.04. I'm using a Sonet ZEW2500P USB wireless card, which shows up when I look at lsusb. The card works under Windows, so its not a hardware problem.
When I run iwconfig, wlan0 simply doesn't show up on the list. It doesn't go by any other name either. I've tried adding iface wlan0 inet dhcp auto wlan0 to my /etc/network/interfaces file, but to no effect. I've tried using both the rt2000usb driver and the old rt2570 driver, and made sure both are not loaded at the same time using lsmod, but this doesn't help.
I wanted to try the CONFIG_NET_RADIO enable/rebuild kernel technique, but I can't find CONFIG_NET_RADIO anywhere in my autoconf.h file!
I assume someone will want to see a log file of some kind - just let me know which one (and where I can find it).
I just installed Debian 5.0.4 successfully. I want to use the PC as a File Server with two Drives configured as a RAID 1 device. Everything with the RAID device works fine, the only question I have belogs to the GRUB 0.97 Booloader. I would like to be able to boot my Server even if one of the disks fail or the filesystem containing the OS becomes corrupt, so I configured only the data partitions to be a RAID 1 device, so on the second disk should be a copy of the last stable installation, similar to this guide:[URL]...
I've installed firmware-iwlwifi I've modprobe -r'd and modprobed the iwlagn module I CAN scan, using iwlist wlan0 scanning, and I can see my essid, hovering in the distance. it is definitely broadcasting.
I use wicd and wicd-curses. No wireless show up in wicd-curses. ifup wlan0 gives me no dhcp offers received and slumbers again. from iwconfig:
wlan0 IEEE 802.11abgn ESSID:off/any Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=15 dBm Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Encryption key:off Power Management:off from lspci: 03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation WiFi Link 5100
My brother is working for a company that is making various types of embedded software. He's been trying to install Micro Core Linux on a device, and it worked after some manual kernel patching & configuring. The issue is this; he need to install this system on hundreds of similar devices. Is there a way of making the configured kernel into a bzImage, so that the kernel can be compiled on the other systems without any tweaking?
I've been testing Squeeze to determine whether KDE4 is finally suitable for my primary machine. Everything seems to be working fine except for detection of IDE devices. My CD/DVD drive no longer automounts and the reason seems to be that no device is being created. My Lenny system detects the drive as /dev/hda, but no such device exists in Squeeze. During boot, Squeeze appears to detect the drive as /dev/sr0 (according to dmesg), but in fact that device does not exist either.I'm actually running the Lenny kernel, as I am unable to compile my Ralink wireless driver (rt2860sta) using the Squeeze kernel. Also, for inquiring minds, I use removable HDD drive bays on my systems to simplify testing.
The computer networking works fine with a normal static setup, but adding a USB wireless device is not successful. It is my own network so the wpa-ssid and wpa-psk are known to work with Lenny and a previous wireless device.The device is recognized (lsusb) and the driver is confirmed to be in the kernel (lsmod). Here is the iwconfig output:
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:off/any Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=20 dBm Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Encryption key:off Power Management:off
After typing: ifconfig wlan0 192.168.1.144 up I can ping that address, but it is not working. I have just done a fresh install of Sid so that I could get the 2.6.35 kernel which contains the ath9k_htc driver for the USB wireless device that I am using. The firmware is ar9271.fw but my source of that is questionable because it does not seem readily available. I am temporarily using a PCMCIA wired connection which is what I am using to connect to the computer via telnet. (This is just for convenience so as to avoid getting up all the time.) Here is the ifconfig output:
I installed Debian Lenny on my HP Laptop - dv6-2120ed. Because i have atheros wireless card i needed to install ath9k which is not supported in 2.6.26 kernel so i compiled it to 2.6.32. Everything is good, but when i boot the new kernel i get "Bar 6: No parent found of for device" for 2 devices - the ethernet LAN card and the sound card. After 1 minute waiting the kernel starts booting and everything works fine (the LAN and the SOUND card too). How can i fix this and what means it exactly?
I newly installed Debian 6.0 I choose for the 2.6.32-5 686-bigmem kernel because I have 6Gb of RAM Now I want to use Cool n Quiet When I try to do modprobe powernow-k8 I get a 'no such device' message I have an Athlon64 X2 6000+ cpu. Am I using the correct kernel for this?
Having trouble with wireless and FC11, eth0 is ok. When I try to activate wlan0 through system-config-network 1.5.97, I get msg: Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Determining IP information for wlan0... failed. This is a compaq laptop.
I m unable to bring my wireless lan UP and getting the following error: SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument in dmesg i m getting : link not ready wlan0 Network card is : Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)
I am trying to perform VM cloning using KVM in a centos 5.6 machines. I copy the memory contents of a running vm to an external state file and try to use that to start another VM in a different machine. While starting the cloned VM I provide a different mac address but once it resumes it has the old one . I tried changing the mac address in ifcfg-eth0 but I get the error: Device eth0 has a mac address xx:xx instead of configured xx:xx.Ignoring .
Is there some way to change the ip/mac of the cloned vm without the need to restart the VM ( Then the purpose of cloning will be defeated). Thanks a lot for the info.
I'm not sure if this is a bug in Squeeze beta 2 or if it's something I've overlooked. I have a Maxtor 250 GB external USB drive that I use for backups. It gets auto-mounted fine, always in the same place, and from my normal user account I can write to it, even delete directories on it if I want to. But when, from Gnome, I select the "Safely remove" option, I get an error to the effect that it can't stop the device. The weird thing is that the thing actually *is* unmounted. I've checked the mount point and it's no longer there.Is there some package I maybe should've installed but haven't? I'm not really worried about data loss, since I'm sure the drive wouldn't unmount unless it was properly synched; it's just the error message that bugs me.
I am trying to figure out what needs to be done to automatically set read/write permissions for everyone for my proprietary USB device on system boot. I have created a udev rules file which changes the permissions for the device when it is connected, but it does not change the permissions when the system is booted with the device already connected. The file looks like this:
I have Debian Testing. I am testing XFCE and LXDE and i want to use display manager other than GDM. I have tried SLIM and XDM but when i use them i can't mount partitions and USB through Thunar, PcMan or Nautilus - i get message that i am not authorized (if i do groups in terminal - adm dialout fax cdrom floppy tape audio dip video plugdev games fuse powerdev netdev lpadmin scanner sambashare). When i install GDM everything works fine. I have installed FUSE, HAL, Udev,...I have tried a lot of stuff from AcchLinux forums but nothing worked really.
I have a problem defining persistent device naming on a Debian Lenny server.I have:RAID1 controller on the server machine with two SCSI disks.external storage with RAID5. I have / mount on the first partition on the server SCSI disk and /storage mount on the external storage.
I'm experiencing a problem: The system recognizes the system disk (RAID 1), as sda or sdb - randomly.I want: To control the recognition, and tell the system that sda (sda1) will always be the system disk.The motivation: GRUB is configured to work with sda, and when the system disk doesn't, boot process fails, and I end up in the initramfs shell-like interface.

I'm configuring a machine with Debian 6. I booted from the DVD, took the defaults, and it eventually came up with a Gnome desktop. Everything worked as expected.
I then installed gcc, g++, the Debian kernel source, and built a new kernel with preemptive multitasking turned on. It built clean, I ran "make install" and it put the kernel files in /boot. I rebooted and got a kernel panic error, to the effect that it couldn't find the root filesystem.
for the original install, but the entry for the new kernel has
"linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.30DW-preempt root=/dev/sda1 ro quiet" /etc/fstab has # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation "UUID=1890437b-5884-4b83-97cf-62d39f63c872 / ext3 errors=remount-ro 0 1"
I've tried changing the grub entry to UUID, but the new kernel still panics. grub-mkconfig and update-grub just rebuild the split UUID=/sda1 grub.cfg. The new kernel still seems to be looking for /dev/sda1 even after changing grub.
My os is debian 5.0, netcard is RTL8168D/8111D. I can't use the Static ip, if I setup static ip, output "not found network device", but the network driver have loaded and if I use DHCP mode everything is ok. do you understand my english? What my next steps should be?
I have installed Open SUSE in my DELL server which has 2 broadcom NIC cards, it showing both the NIC cards in Network configuration in YAST ,but it showing as not configured and not connected . Kernel device eth0,wlan0 are not present. In device manager also 2 Broadcom nic cards are detected.
I have just bought a DVB-T usb dongle to watch some TV. The software I'm using is vdr, which has to be started through the /etc/init.d/vdr service. I have created a udev script that executes the service on device insertion. It works nicely, however now when I boot up the computer it takes ages to get to desktop. I believe it is because of the WAIT_FOR part. But without this part, the service starts too soon because the usb dongle has been inserted but the firmware has not finished loading. Can someone point out an alternative way to do it? The script is here [URL].
I am using a kernel with no initrd. I have had this kind of panic before. Usually it means that the kernel can access the hard drive because the driver for the controller or filesystem isn't built into the kernel.
The kernel is 2.6.34 vanilla.
My IDE controller is a Silicon Integrated Systems SiS 5513, and I built the driver for it into the kernel BLK_DEV_SIS5513=y
My /boot (hda1) is ext2, and everything else is ext3
My grub entry (hda2 is my root partition) kernel (hd0,0)/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2
i have this problem i install android sdk, and i install libreries: libstdc++5, lib32stdc++6, lib32ncurses5 and libstdl1.2-dev, now if i use ldd comand don't have problem, but when i use eclipse and i compile a simple example (hello word example), i have this error: [Emulator] SDL init failure, reason is: No available video device i have a notebook toshiba satellite A300-1RI whit ATI Radeon 3650, i install the amd driver and all work well.
I am using Debian testing i386. Just upgraded to 2.6.39-2-686-pae. After reboot, and ever since, I am getting warning: WARNING: Could not find hdaps input device (No such file or directory). You may be using an incompatible version of the hdaps module. Falling back to reading the position from sysfs (uses more power). Use '-y' to silence this warning.
Installed a TP-Link TG-3269 Gigabit card in a machine running OS 11.3 32 bit, when I go into Yast, Network Devices, Network to try configuring the card I get this errormsg: Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices). See dmesg output for details. Couldn't find any mention of the card in dmesg's output, (though the 8139 onboard card is in there) there is some stuff about pci host bridge but I don't know whether they would be relevant or not
The chip on the card says it's rtl8169sc but lspci lists it as being 00:07.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 8369 (rev 10) Done some googling and there don't seem be any drivers for a Realtek 8639 and it returns no matches from a search on realtek's site, but there is a driver there for rtl8169sc chips, which I downloaded and installed, no errors when installing it Even after a reboot I still get the same error in Yast's Network Settings screen, lspci still lists it as 8369 and the device isn't listed at all if I run ifconfig
I have a desktop that has a d-link DWL-520 wireless card, which was working under Windoze. Today I installed Centos 5.4 on the system , which went cleanly. I then used Network Configuration to set up the wireless card. I specified to use DHCP, set the SSID and authentication password. When I tried to activate the card I get these error messages
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported. Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Determining IP information for wlan0.
The hardware manager seems to have correctly identified the card and chipset, (Intersil Prism 2.5) and installed driver hostap_pci which came with the distro. This web site seems to suggest that this is the correct driver: [URL] searching forums I've found a few references to these errors, but they were from several years ago, and for different distros and cards. I did find a reference to using Network Manager to configure the card instead of Network Configuration. I started the NM service and configured a connection using it instead, but still no luck.
the PC just hangs for ever. No mouse movement, ctrl-alt-del, nothing.
I have downloaded a Linux driver from Realtek but it will not compile. I have the latest kernel-devel, headers, and gcc. I can post compiler errors if anybody would like. They're all apparently to do with missing parameters.
i am having dell inspiron 1540 laptop installed with ubuntu 10.04 (updated). i wanted to install LAMP(Linux,Apache,MySQL,PHP) for software development purpose.
but after restarting the system, following things occured:-Message box appears saying "Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode" Your screen, graphics card and input device setting could not be detected... OK
Then i get prompt saying what would you like to do ?Run ubuntu in low-graphics mode for just one session. i get a message starting display in one minute.....nothing happens ... i switch to text mode by pressing escape. There is a brown color star before: Speech dispacher configured for user sessions.on battery state there is a infinte loop i.e. no response and system just hangs there...startx at text mode makes the screen blank...
Please tell which part of '/var/log/Xorg.0.log' sholud be scanned to find required information.
i am a new to ubuntu How to solve this problem i donot have internet connection and its important that i get it repaired as soon as possible....essential to get it running else i will be forced to goto Windows...
While I had the case open to swap out a network card I thought I would drop in an old USB card (previously used with no problems on a machine running Debian) however on boot I'm now getting some errors showing up. The card has been sitting around for a while so it could be an issue with the card.
Without going into a lot of the reasons, I have a bootable program on a USB stick that i would like to 'boot' when debian is starting up (or after it completes, or whenever it makes sense to do it). My MB does not support a USB boot, I've removed the floppy and CD so I can add additional HDs (its a small box but well ventilated).
Another option I have is to use my bios 'network boot' option, but I have no clue how to use it and the only description in the mb manual says "Allows system to be booted over a network" In network boots, *usually* one is given an option of specifying a device address, and the network boot executes a boot protocol (e.g. bootp), and the boot image file is downloaded to the target, stored and run out of RAM. No evidence of this behavior is exhibited when the network boot option is selected in the bios...
I recently started having this odd behaviour while using and loading cpufrequtils on boot, I don't know if it is happening to someone else.During boot I'm getting( when /etc/init.d/cpufrequtils invokes /etc/init.d/loadcpufreq to load the proper module):
Loading cpufreq kernel modules...FATAL: Error inserting speedstep_centrino (/lib/modules/3.0.0-1-amd64/kernel/drivers/cpufreq/speedstep-centrino.ko): No such device FATAL: Error inserting pcc_cpufreq (/lib/modules/3.0.0-1-amd64/kernel/drivers/cpufreq/pcc-cpufreq.ko): No such device
