Fedora Installation :: Can't Config The Network Config ( IP Address ), Due To The Error Of Network Manager?
Jan 17, 2010
When I install the FC11 by using"Install or upgrade an existing system"or"Install system with basic video driver"mode...Point 1, I can't config the network config ( IP Address ), due to theerror of network manager...Point 2, I can't enter into the text mode to do the installation steps.Remark:The machine is provide Web,DNS, and Mail Server on the NET ( Internet )
I was playing with my debian server when something went totally wrong while i was editing something on my network interface,i removed those crap that i wrote and left the network interface configuration as it was
Like for example after re-editing my network interface,it was like :
As i did a network restart, i get this error saying :
There is already a pid file /var/run/dhclient.eth0.pid with pid 2802 killed old client process, removed PID file.
What is this error and how can i fix it,because every time im re booting my server i lost my network config.
I have ovpn configuration files for Windows from SwitchVPN. They do not provide configuration files for GNU/Linux. They said I can extract the certificate and key files from the ovpn files, but I'm confused about how to do that.First of all, I don't know which Authentication Type to choose: "Certificates (TLS)," "Password," "Password with Certificates (TLS)" or "Static Key."
Second, I don't know what to put where from the ovpn file. I see a <ca> � </ca> section and a <tls-auth> </tls-auth> section, but I don't see how those correspond to any of the Authentication Types. "Certificates (TLS)" and "Password with Certificates (TLS)" require two certificates and a key, "Password," requires one certificate and no key, and "Static Key" requires a key and key direction but no certificate. When I connect to SwitchVPN in Windows, it asks for a user name and password.Here's an example of the ovpn files (certificate and key contents removed):
route-delay 3 fast-io client dev tun
how to get what I need from the ovpn files, and which Authorization Type to choose in the Network Manager VPN configuration GUI, and what to put in the blanks?
I looked around, but found no results that really matched and I would like to point out that I am fairly new to linux, so this may be a very obvious answer to some of you.I am running fc12.i686, installed from a disk in the back of a book for a class. No one else in my class is having this issue.When I select System > Administration > Network I am given this error: Failed to execute child process "/usr/bin/system-config-network" (No such file or directory). I am not so new to not realize that this file is not there, which I confirmed with an "ls -a". My question is, is there any way that I can download and install that bin? Or perhaps replace/repair it with the disc? It was supposed to be in the original install and my have been, the only thing that I have done in the /usr/bin/ directory is I tried to install Java (6.22 I think it was), which told me it installed correctly but didn't work when I tried Minecraft.
I've been running F10 since it first came out, and I was happy to see it was the first Fedora release that automatically recognized my Atheros wireless card. I have to run system-config-network and press the "activate" button when I start the machine, but that's ok and no big deal. But today, for whatever reason,in system-config-network, the "activate" and "deactivate" buttons are grayed out and I cannot start the device so I have no network access. When I boot the machine into Windows, it works fine.
I'm trying to connect to another computer in my network via qpid-config(which is running qpid server). Here is where I follow the instructions [URL].. I can connect to qpid server(which is running on the network) via JMX Management Console which is gui version of what I'm to accomplish from console/unix shell. I can connect and read messages from queue(s) from this server so it means there is no problem with network or whatever. I'm running Fedora Core 13, here is the following combinations I've tried so far with qpid-config so I can run qpid-tool and some other commands :
Code: qpid-config -a localhost, 192.168.1.2:8999, guest/guest@qpid-server qpid-config -a guest/guest@qpid-server 192.168.1.2:8999 qpid-config -a qpid-server, 192.168.1.2:8999, qpid-server:8999, guest/guest@qpid-server qpid-server is added to /etc/hosts as hostname for 192.168.1.2
Had anyone anything similar to this maybe I'm missreading the instructions(although they are pretty straight forward), I've spend so much time on this and just stuck now.
This may fall under the "ain't broke don't fix it" category but it's driving me nuts. I've got the Broadcom 4322 wireless adapter in my laptop and it works fine with broadcom-wl driver and kmod. However there is no ifcfg-eth1 file and the card does not show up in system-config-network.
When I attempt to connect to a wireless network, the network manager asks me for the network's password, then says 'setting network address' for 20 or so seconds, then asks me for some random Hex or ASCII key in the same type of window I put the password in (Secrets for Noel -- KDE Daemon). Since a key is already typed into the window, I press OK, which then causes the network manager to go back to 'setting network address', then the window pops up again and keeps repeating itself.
I'm running Opensuse 11.4 with KDE, and my driver is ath9k. I don't know much about linux so please don't tell me to 'recompile this' or 'change this setting' without explaining how to do it. Please help, I've been unable to connect to wireless in OpenSUSE for 2 weeks now.
I would like to set my FireFox up so that when I type something in the address bar that is not a url, it will automatically do a google search. I have done this before, but that was a while ago and I can't remember what settings to change in about:config.Currently, when I type something that is not a url, it performs a search and then automatically opens the first web page that it finds, like a "I'm feeling lucky" search. I just want to see a google list.
I just installed F13, and many things have changed (was using FC4!). When I restart my network, my NIC card does not come back up with the correct info, and for the life of me, I can't figure out why. Here is the NIC info for eth2 when things are correct [Replaced the MAC address due to paranoia, but it's correct on my machine]:
eth2 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:00:00:00:00:00 inet addr:192.168.2.1 Bcast:192.168.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::baac:6fff:fe8e:57d2/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
I have just installed Debian Weezy and for some reason it just does not see my router.1) is there a good network config script I can use?if not then what files must be edited to setup the network?When I attempt to ping the router, it does not see it. I have checked the cables etc.
First, like a dummy I did not backup the Samba config file before making changes. Using openSUSE as ftp and http server, was following tutorial to share between openSUSE and windows. I was using VNC to access machine to edit Samba config file, after altering the the file VNC authenication fails. I can still authenicate locally and through the ftp.
I have a problem with 32Bit Fedora. I have it installed on my desktop pc, and it works, but in my laptop it doesn't. On my laptop, I have 64Bit, but wanted to reinstall and use 32Bit instead. Whenever I try to install 32Bit, the loading bar finishes, then the screen goes black, and enters the terminal, blinking rapidly, spamming mtrr 3 not used. I've tried a few things to fix this, but I haven't had any luck.
I have another similar problem with 32Bit on my desktop. It is working right now, but yesterday I installed a NVidia driver, and the mtrr 3 error occurred, forcing me to reinstall, without the NVidia driver.
EDIT: I tried
Then i ran
X -config /boot/xorg.conf.new
The errors that show up are these:
(EE) NOUVEAU(0): [drm] error creating device, setting NoAccel (EE) NOUVEAU(0): 1432: No valid FB address in PCI config space (EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration
new Install of 11.2 every time i boot i have to config network devices via Yast Control Center. I now have 8 eth configs for my one local net adapter. Why does the MAC address change each time? I cant use my routers built in MAC filter and MAC control functions if this keeps changing. So each time i boot i need to also go into my router and build a new MAC address profile based on the new MAC address before i get Internet access. Security to the point of no access...I hope this is just a bug in the system. I thought MAC addresses were firmware/device specific? What I need is one eth config that works each boot. And I need one MAC address that does not change between boots.
Using xubuntu 11.04, how do I maually give myself a static IP address and other IPv4 settings? I see the edit connections panel and saved a setting there but can't see how to use that setting. The only useable setting when I'm connected by ethernet is Auto eth0.
My colleague changed the hostname using "system-config-network", but now I want to change it using any how (either system-config-network or /etc/sysconfig/network). Even I changed it from /etc/sysconfig/network. But when I reboot the system its getting old hostname. Is there some other place to change hostname?
I am facing two issues with CUPS - 1. I have installed cups 1.3.9 over OpenSuse11 x86. Please check below -
cups:/usr/share/cups/banners # cups-config --version 1.3.9 cups:/usr/share/cups/banners # cat /proc/version Linux version 184.108.40.206-9-pae (geeko@buildhost) (gcc version 4.3.2 [gcc-4_3-branch revision 141291] (SUSE Linux) ) #1 SMP 2008-12-04 18:10:04 +0100
I have added few printers over there and everything is working fine. I can also able to add - delete - modify any printers from "yast2 printer" command. I can also able to browse cups web interface via http://cups:631, but when I am going to manage the printers (start - stop - delete etc), none of the buttons are working in firefox5 not even in IE also. Older version of firefox is giving error as "This address uses a network port which is normally used for purposes other than Web browsing. Firefox has canceled the request for your protection." All other buttons are working properly.
2. LINUX - LINUX Printing - OK LINUX - WINDOWS Printing - OK WINDOWS - LINUX Printing - NOT OK
While giving printing from Windows machine (Printer attached on Linux), there is no problem to coonect the printers, but unable to print.
I'll try not to be too wordy. Want to get my openSUSE 11.2 (fresh install) laptop to see my network shares ...not to be a server or share any files. I've looked at 50 websites and everything seems to be "server" and "share" oriented. Maybe I (newb) am confused by the terminology...
I have a router that provides DHCP. My LAN PC's consist of a Vista laptop, an XP DAW, and a Kubuntu file server. Somehow I got Kubuntu configured properly, all of the Windows machines can access it and vice-versa. The Kubuntu smb.conf does not work on this laptop, and it seems overkill -no shares needed here. And yes, I get DHCP and interweb on the laptop -posted this with it.
All I want is access to my (other) network drives from this (openSUSE 11.2) laptop. Not a server, not to share. This is easy... right? It's driving me nuts Is there a Samba configuration that will let me jump onto networks and surf Windows/Samba shares like any old Windoze box browsing Network Neighborhood? Do I have to be a Samba guru?
I would like to know what is OpenSuse application that does the same job of RH's system-config-authentication application. I need to test Active Directory authentication while setting up Samba file server to use AD accounts and ACLs.
I'm having problems with networking. I just installed Debian 6 SServer LAMP and it didn't autoconnect to internet. I plug in the internet to my eth0 (default) port, and I keep getting timeouts. I found that dhcp3-client was not installed and fixed that. My etc interfaces has this for eth0: Auto eth0 Iface eth0 inet dhcp What other packages or config do I need to make the internet work? It's missing something basic that wasn't setup properly. I do get the correct dns address to my isp provider when I check etc resolv.conf. It just can't dhcp discover.
