Networking :: Identifying Network Devices At Boot Time?

Dec 23, 2008

I boot linux off a USB stick on many different computers with different hardware. How can I determine in a script which devices eth0, eth1, wlan0 exist and which hardware devices they apply too? Sometimes a wireless card is wlan0, other times it is eth1 or even eth3! The proc/net/dev file does not inidicate which hardware is installed.

Ubuntu Networking :: Server Doesn't Find My Other Network Devices

Jun 30, 2010

I've got three network devices on a laptop:

1. Built-in ethernet LAN
2. Built-in ethernet WLAN
3. PCMCIA ethernet LAN

I installed Ubuntu Server on this computer without the last one inserted.I inserted the last one today, and it lights up when i put in the cable. To be sure if Ubuntu has found it, I tested with the install CD and could see that it found all three at the first part of the installation where I have to chose a primary device.I can't get my WLAN card working, neither do I get my PCMCIA LAN card working. The third card, this PCMCIA card, has worked on Ubuntu Desktop using another laptop. And as said, the setup finds all three.

General :: Application On Server To Allow Network Boot Of Windows Pc's Force Boot Img Load

Apr 6, 2011

A colleague of mine was studying at the University of Vienna and saw an application which was based on linux whereby other pc's booted from it and if on the server they had set it to force a clean install on that PC it would download and install a windows image. Does anyone know of the app or could point me in the direction of a similar app.

General :: Restarting Network Devices Remotely?

Oct 4, 2010

I have a machine with several IP addresses with eth devices like eth0, eth0:1, eth0:2, eth0:3. Can I restart only eth0 without bringing down eth0:1? It would be really convenient to be able to log in via SSH on eth0:1 and restart eth0 without locking myself out or not being able to bring the network back up.

If I stop eth0, will that automatically stop all the others?

General :: Add Devices To Computers /dev Folder Over A Network?

May 24, 2011

I was wondering if it were possible to add devices to my computers /dev folder over a network. In linux philosophy, everything is treated as a file, and if I can have my /home/user1 and /home/user2 folders located somewhere on the network, why not the devices in /dev? The idea is that I might control, say, a cd drive in another computer or, a monitor on another computer. Can anyone give me some thoughts on adding devices to my /dev folder over a network? The aim is to make something evil of course! (like a 10 monitor PC)

OpenSUSE Network :: How Is SUSE Better At Being Server / Networking OS

Aug 19, 2010

I know openSUSE (and SUSE Enterprise) work great with windows Active Directory.Now, I understand that Linux systems are far more stable and secure (if configured properly). What about features though? What does openSUSE/Linux have instead of AD for file/folder sharing across the network? Are there roaming profiles? If so, how do I use that?I love openSUSE because of yast (and a few other things). And It's my main LinuxOS on my tower. I am still in college getting my certs and a degree (in networking). I really want to understand why Linux (openSUSE/ SUSE enterprise) is a better networking solution as opposed to Windows Sever 2003/2008.Also, why SUSE over RHEL/CentOS? Yast is awesome, but are there other reasons?

I know that's a lot to ask in one post. Feel free to include links so you won't have to type too much.I'd like both personal opinions, hard facts, and just general user experiences as to the features that make Linux (openSUSE) better, not just the stability and security.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Mounting Devices In Suse 11.2?

Dec 13, 2009

I came into this strange behavior related to mounting DVDs and/or CDs in SuSE 11.2 : after inserting a DVD intro the DVD unit, and mounting it through the "device notifier" applet, I find the disk mounted in /media under a folder named after the disk label (as expected) BUT ... the folder is in fact padded with blanks after the name found as label for the disk. For ex.: I have a DVD called DVD_ROCK2 The mounting is made in "/media/DVD_ROCK2 " (the folder created at mounting time in /media has 14 characters (if I counted them correctly) instead of the only 8 from the name of the disk This does affect my application "cdcollect", which crashes when it encounters a mounted disk which contains spaces in it's label.

I tried to adjust cdcollect, by modifying it's dources (trying to "trim" the name readed as disk-label, but with no results; anyway I am not good at C#, and even kinda hate this language, so... I'd prefer a solution coming from Linux's point of view: what changed in the mounting system from Suse 11.1 till now ? what can I do to change this way of mounting the disks ?I cannot state this happens with every single one of my DVDs; the ones wich are mounted this way are generally written in the same PC, in older versions of SuSE (11.0 and 11.1). Unfortunatelly, I had an older written disk (way back on SuSE 9.x) which does not behave this way (it is mounted in a folder with the name created exactly as the label is, without the padded spaces).

OpenSUSE Network :: SuSE 11.4 - VLANs Cause X86-64 System Using E1000e Module To Hang On Boot?

Jun 10, 2011

Recently, I decided to migrate from SuSE 11.2 to 11.4. My 11.2 installation was working fine with two VLANs and several VMs. I went the route of installing 11.4 from scratch rather than upgrading 11.2.

The installation went smoothly. Afterwards, I ran Yast and changed eth0 to a bonding interface. Then I added two VLANs that used the bonding interface. When I restarted the computer, I saw the following on the console: "Waiting for mandatory devices vlan3005 __NSC__". Then after a 30 second countdown:

"vlan3005 no interface found". The solution to that problem was to add "ETHERDEVICE='eth0'" to /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0.3005". Upon restarting the computer, I could see that DHCP started this time but didn't get an IP address and continued in the background while the rest of the console messages scrolled by. At the point where X kicks in and I should have gotten a GUI login window, the screen goes dark. I cannot get to a console (CTRL-ALT-F1 or F2) or any other GUI login window (CTRL-ALT-F7 F8 or F9).

The computer was completely unresponsive. I could not ssh in to it from another host nor could I ping it. I let it sit for a few minutes but nothing ever appeared on the console. There were no blinking lights on the keyboard. I had to power the computer off. I turned off VLAN trunking on the switch port and the computer booted up fine, without network access, of course. I checked the logs but could find no clues as to what happened. I suspect a kernel problem. However, before I proceed further, I thought I would post my problem here and see if anyone has had a similar problem and perhaps a solution.

OpenSUSE Network :: No Network Devices Recognized On New Install

Feb 24, 2011

Just installed 11.3 kde. When running the live cd both wireless and ethernet devices appeared in the network connections manager utility. I even connected to a wireless AP.I just booted up for the first time and none of these devices are available. There is no network manager icon in the system tray, and when the network manager utility is maually opened the only connection type i can select is vpn.I know that opensuse should be able to recognize these devices since they were available and working via the live cd, so can anyone help me restore them?

One extra piece of info, is that I am sharing a home directory with a gnome ubuntu install. there were a few minor issues i dealt with initially, but i didnt need to change this user's UID like I have had to do in the past so that's good. Each time i open a terminal I get two pieces of output assuming from the bash startup saying something like.URL...I highly doubt that these problems are related, but figured I'd post. Also if someone knows the solution to that as well, that would save me a bit of googling.

General :: No Network Access After Installing Suse 11.2?

Sep 8, 2010

I'm new to SUSE. I had some virus issues with Windows Vista and decided to change my OS.

I have the modem set up and still can't get the internet to come up. I get the mozilla blank webpage, but I am connected to the internet server. What can I do to get full internet access if everything seems to be working they way it should except for the blank webpage? I know I must be missing something but what?

Also, how do I open Yast to use it? I think I opened it by accident and got some things done

OpenSUSE Network :: Setup As A Network Boot Server To Install Solaris 10 On A Sun Ultra 10 Client?

May 12, 2011

I have an opensuse 11.3 install which I want to set up as a network boot server to install Solaris 10 on a Sun Ultra 10 client. According to what I've read, this requires rarpd and tftpd which I've set up on opensuse, but also bootparamd which I can't find for 11.3. It seems it was last included with opensuse 9.2. Does anyone know if it's available, if I could use the suse 9.2 version, or any alternative?

OpenSUSE Network :: IPV6 Disabling In Suse In General?

Apr 10, 2011

I've had a hell of a time with this and now all but YAST2 are ok. Going back some time to 10.0 this could be used to disable it very completely.

open terminal and run
echo "alias net-pf-10 off" >> /etc/modprobe.conf
echo "alias ipv6 off" >> /etc/modprobe.conf

restart computer. Has anyone used this on more recent issues even 11.4 and are there any repercussions?I assume that the inverse will but it back on ie off's just become on's? I will be using cups when I install my printer which is one concern and I am not at all sure that modprobe will do anything anymore?

I also recollect that there is a command to cause the kernel to effectively reboot which would save restarting. Can't remember what it is. Maybe some one can refresh my memory.

Unfortunately I don't see how I could do that with Crunch Bang.

I tried the live cd of CrunchBang and found it to be a great minimalistic approach to a desktop.
