Debian :: Debian 5.0 Network-Manager Interfers With Vnet0 Bridging To Eth0 For Virt-manager
May 27, 2009
i'm trying to install virt-manager , to run a couple of virtual machines, i created a virtual nic vnet0 and bridged it to my eth0, i have configured the /etc/network/interfaces file with proper static ip, but i beleive the network manager is renaming my nic to eth1 and causing all kinds of problems. I uninstalled network manager and now i can ping anywhere in the network, but not outside it. ie google.com
I'm trying to connect to the VPN of my employer; after fix various minor issues I reach this point in which the DNS entries and the default gateway of the VPN are overwritten with the values of the eth0 device that appears by default. Therefore the vpn is not useful.
does Network Manager in Fedora 15 support bridging and if so, can you configure the bridge using your wireless interface? All of the information I've come across so far said that you can NOT create a bridge using a wireless interface, and that Network Manager doesn't support bridging, but this info was also from Fedora 12 and below, so I don't know if it's still relevant for Fedora 15. I would certainly hope that by now you can make a bridge from a wireless interface. Even the lowly VMware Player offers this option.
I have a new install of Debian Squeeze from debian-6.0.0-amd64-kde-CD-1.iso but I'm experiencing problems with the wireless internet applet in the taskbar.When the computer boots, it doesn't connect automatically eventhough I have it set as such. I have to fiddle with it until I get the request from KDE Wallet Manager to insert the password to complete the connection. I didn't have this behavior in Kubuntu.
I'm running Fedora 12. I've been using Amahi for a trial but this blew up. Last attempt to use it flagged up a problem with Ruby on Rails release version incompatabilies. I've removed Amahi using the software toolk. I now have no internet access and no ETH0 in network manager. How do I get my ethernet back?
Should I be able to see eth0 in the Network Connections control program that ships with Kubuntu?Its not there. See screen-shot.eth0 definitely exists and I can access the Internet no probs but it doesn't show in the above.
I have a troubling networking situation that is compounded by the system being remote without any out-of-band mgmt in place nor a serial connection - but am relying on a coworker entering commands into the terminal for me, or doing stuff in the GUI I have an FC12 i386 install running, that was up and stable for 6 days. Primarily this was only being used for a deployment of nTop. Up through Monday evening, I was connecting to the system (in NY) via VNC (here in SF), and was successfully watching nTop do its thing.
Tuesday morning, I go to connect to SSH and I can't get in. The NAT translation is still in place on the firewall, but there is no connection to the NIC/eth0 from the router. This is what I've had my coworker run:
I was going to try and have her run the /sbin/mii-tool eth0 tomorrow a.m. just to verify that the interface isn't physically bad? But this is a brand new desktop, and I can't for the life of me understand why this interface went down. I also have the internal IP on a DHCP reservation, which is the same IP listed in IPADDR in the ifcfg-eth0 file - could this be a problem? should I remove the DHCP reservation? I did this so I could SSH to a public IP which I have NAT'd back to the internal 10.0.x.x address I had my coworker take a look at the GUI, and the eth0 properties are "inactive" and the "Activate|Deactivate" buttons are greyed out.I suppose I can have my coworker grab the /var/log/messages and copy to a USB drive, then email me that from another workstation.
I downloaded EasyPeasy (EP) to evaluate whether I wanted to put it on my wife's EeePC 900. I thought, why not install it in a virtual machine on my desktop system in order to play with it and see what needs to be done to get all the programs she will need working before I do the actual installation? So, I launched virt-manager, and tried to set up a virtual machine for EP 1.6. Well, it appears to be launching EP, but when it comes up, I have the top bar, but the tabs and lcons that should be on the desktop are nowhere to be found. When I try to shut it down, the shutdown freezes, so I wind up killing the virtual machine after waiting several minutes.
Every time I try to do this, I get the same results. This is whether I choose KVM or QEMU for the virtual machine. I have created it with 1 Gb RAM and 1 processor, then created a 16 Gb virtual drive. I started with 0 pre-allocated for the drive. I tried again one more time but this time actually allocating the full amount of the virtual drive before starting to see if it made any difference. It didn't.
I also noticed that it is not recognizing that I have a DVD with the ISO written to it (it is a bit too big for a CD). There is no option to use a USB thumb-drive or SD card that I can find. So, it appears I am stuck with using the ISO for this installation. It said that there was no disc in /dev/sr0 or /dev/sr1, even though the proper disc was there.
Under advanced options, I have tried both X86_64 and i686 with equally bad results.
For Linux versions, although there is an option for Fedora 13 as a guest, there is not an option for Ubuntu Lucid, from which EasyPeasy 1.6 is derived. I have tried several of the install versions from the list in an effort to get this to work. It didn't.
I have been trying to get network-manager up and running in order to connect to my work's VPN easily, but it is proving to be a real pain. I am using Debian Lenny.
I then added myself to the group netdev and rebooted but it is still not running. What's more, when installing network-manager, aptitude has also installed resolvconf which screwed up my /etc/resolv.conf. It decided to make a symlink of resolv.conf to '/etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf' which doesn't exist and 'run' is itself a symlink to '/lib/init/rw/resolvconf' which doesn't exist! Talk about simplicity. So I just manually created and altered a new resolv.conf.If anyone knows what is going on with network manager then any help would be much appreciated.One last thing: I read that I need to comment out any configuration of eth0 from /etc/network/interfaces in order for network-manager to manage said interface. I previously had eth0 setup with a static IP. I trust network-manager will allow me to do this once it starts behaving?
I'm running Kubuntu 10.4. My problem is that Network Manager keeps defaulting back to Auto eth0. I have created a new wired connection and set my manual addresses. I have ticked the 'connect automatically' button. Every time I reboot or wake up it reverts back to Auto eth0.I did have wicd installed but this was not reconnecting after wake up (said it was connected but I couldn't ping etc), this is a pain also.
I used the network manager to configure my eth0 interface.It is working fine. I have found the nameserver entries in /etc/resolv.conf files. But the /etc/network/interfaces file does not carry the ip, netmask, gateway,network and broadcast entries. It only has a entry for the lo interface. where are the settings for eth0 as done by the network manager, stored in case of ubuntu?
I have installed WICD on Debian . I can now access a new a Network Manager screen, which did not exist before, but it does not display/detect any wireless networks. It is like dead. Before installing WICD I did at least have a wireless WPE encrypted network, which was detected, although it often disconnected for no known reasons. Now even that Network has gone and I can't go on line. Can anybody help here? How can I configure the WICDNetwork Manager to detect an existing network or create a new one? In the latter case, would I have to reconfigure the Router settings to setup/connect to a network in Debian? May be I have to do this, because Tor/Vidalia changes my IP address and so my Network Adapter ( Linksys) can no longer connect to the router. Also, when trying to follow troubleshooting leads in this connection, the Terminal screen on Debian ( CMD) would often return a PERMISSIONS DENIED message.
Config: Squeeze, 2.6.32-5-amd64I just installed squeeze and the network is up and nm-manager deamon if working but the Gnome applet doesn't seem to work as usual. It indicates no network although the network is available as indicated by ifconfig and route below. When I switch WiFi on, the nm works flawlessly. When I click on the applet icon it says "Wired Network: device not supported" (or similar, msg in french is
I have a VM with Windows XP that is driving me crazy. Everything works great except the display windows (and networking, but that is a different story) I am open VirtManager and go to display the OS and the images will get distorted. I will open IE and scroll down a webpage and some of the text will remain still and others will move, leave an image of garbage. This makes it very aggravating to use. To clear the page I can shake the window (using the cursor not my hands) or move from one tab to another till it clears.. then if I scroll again I have to deal with it all over again.
I tried virt-manager 0.8.0-7 or 0.8.1-1, my guest like fedora 12 i386, ubuntu i686, win xp do not have any sound even they detect the driver(es1370 or ac97) correctly. I doubt it is because of the pulseaudio and the qemu's user. Qemu uses not my user, it uses qemu user.
If I uses qemu-kvm directly, it has sound and work fine.
My first post on openSUSE, since migrating from Ubuntu (didn't like Unity!). I've installed the virtualization packages from YAST2 and when I attempt to run virt-manager, it crashes. The error is Code: could not import gobject (could not find _PyGObject_API object) I've searched both these forums and via a general Google and although I've found posts, all of them are apparently resolved - but not mine.
My laptop is fully up to date and running Gnome 3 on openSUSE 11.4.Has anyone else come across this lately?
My wireless works without issue with network manager. However I notice that it seems to be a gui only app. That is, when I stop the display manager my laptop loses internet connectivity. The NetworkManager service is still running. Is there a commandline method of using the NetworkManager settings to start the wireless connetion?
I have stop using debian some months but I decide to come back. Yesterday I have make a clean install of debian squeeze. The network manager never rember my wireles password. Every time I open the pc it ask me the keyring password and the wireles password. Why network manager can't rember my passwords? Also I have a strange problem when I try to gain root acces. If I try to open synaptic or to mount a ntfs partion it ask me the root password but every time I type my root pass it says that its incorrect but I am absolutely sure that I type my root pass correct. Also if I try to gain root acces from terminal with su its became the same thing but after some tries it takes my pass as corect. So every time I type my root pass from a gui like gksu it always says that is incorect but if I type my pass in terminal it take it correct after some tries. In the past I have again installed the debian from the same cd on the same pc but I had never those problems. What can be wrong?
I have installed i guess everything needed to add a VPN in my network manager, but its greyd out.
Installed on the machine I have installed
i A network-manager - network management framework (daemon and u i network-manager-gnome - network management framework (GNOME fronte i network-manager-openvpn - network management framework (OpenVPN plug i network-manager-pptp - network management framework (PPTP plugin i network-manager-vpnc - network management framework (VPNC plugin
I have checked the synaptic too and everything seems installed.
I was a ubuntu user for 3 years but all that 6 month release and reinstallations and bugs gave my nerves so I decided to turn to the real OS debian and hopefully stick to it. The only problem I have is that although wired internet connection is working the network manager app shows no connection and the wireless is also not working. I have an LG R500 laptop and never had the same issue with ubuntu before.
My ethernet and pppoe internet connection worked flawlessly in lenny. I erased my hard drive and installed squeeze and now only internet works. (There is a pop-up that says that my wired connection is disconnected and shortly after there is another pop-up saying that my internet is connected.)1.my user is in the netdev group2./etc/network/interfaces only contains:
auto lo iface lo inet loopback 3. /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf only contains:
Okay, so today I decided I was bored with my current Fedora 15 installation and tried a little distro hopping. Eventually I ended up at Debian Squeeze. I downloaded the cd version as a net install won't work because of driver issues. I used the graphical interface to install it.When it finished installing I booted it up, made sure everything was working. Now in all my past I think 6 linux installations, all I had to do to get the internet working was move a file someone gave me a while to my /lib/firmware. I'm not sure if this is the problem, but no matter what, where ever I go, I can't find an actual manager to connect to the internet. This might be a stupid question to a lot of people, but I'm stumped. There is nothing in the menu's.
Now I've been working with GNU/Linux for almost a year now and have come across many problems, but never like this. I've Googled up and down, and searched the forums here and still nothing. I've looked in the menu's and the only network related thing is network-proxy. Just for kicks I also tried
If I made a distro from scratch it would have been Lubuntu, cept I'm sure my theming would have been horrible. Now Ive installed on a couple of my Laptops, and even had a few friends convert, and for the most part everything is hunkus doris, cept one small issue thats keeping me from slapping it on my trusty laptop. I'm lost as to what the problem could be. Ive tried just about all I can think of, but I use sprint mobile broadband to connect to the net and then use Network Manager to share this connection with the laptops and Palmtops around the house. I can get my sprint modem to connect thats not a big problem the problem is now I cannot get the Auto Eth0 to connect to send out as a share. It just refuses to connect. Now this is not a Lubuntu problem at all Im sure its somehow a Lxde problem, as Mint Lxde, PeppermintOS, and so on do the same thing, refusing to connect Auto Eth0 while Sprint is connected. Any Gnome based distro this works flawless, as does Xfce distros, so Im sure this is somehow something within Lxde. Im sure its down to just "missing" a file or some stupid overlooked thing.
In Googling around it appears that the Network Manager used to have a nice simple (obvious, logical, straightforward, intuitive, easy-to-use... ... can you tell I'm a bit surprised that there's not a simple button to do this, it's pretty common functionality ) option in the IPv4 tab called "Shared to other computers" allowing you to share your network connection with any computers connected to yours... kind of like this:
Professor Google seems to indicate that this may have existed in Debian at one point but, I don't see this option anymore. How do I get it back (or is there another gui way to do this without editing the /etc/network/interfaces file... if there's no other way to do this... that's fine but I'd prefer an easy method of enabling and disabling sharing)?
What I'm trying to do... I have a Beaglebone Black connected via IP over USB. When I'm ssh'ed into the BeagleBone, I want to be able to use aptitude install to grab new packages etc... and that kind of requires access to the outside world. Everything I've found so far seems to to require a modification to the interfaces file but since (according to the interfaces man page) the preferred method is to use the network manager if possible... I'm trying to avoid that.
* It should be noted that I'm running sid with the experimental 4.3 kernel so... maybe in doing so I've shot myself in the foot?
I have been trying to set up bridged networking, but I keep failing. I am using Fedora 14 x86_64 KDE as host with qemu-kvm and SPICE. The plan is to install a windows server, a few windows clients and then rawhide as guests on that. Naturally I want to use bridged networking for the windows guests.[URL]..But those both leave the guest without internet access. Is it really this difficult, or am I doing it wrong(tm)?
