My network is working and shows a connection to my wireless connection (connected at 100%), but firefox shows "Problem loading page" when ever I enter a url. So I can't access the internet. Synaptic doesn't work either.When I try to download, I get a warning "Could not doadload all repository indexes - (-5 No address associated with hostname)"This is a dual boot machine and the internet connection on the windows side works just fine. The connection worked fine with ubuntu 9.10. But since I partitioned the drive and did a fresh install of 10.4 I can not access the internet.
I have x11 forwarding enabled in /etc/ssh/sshd_config on a suse 11.2 32 bit box running kde I can open x apps on a windows machine using xming and putty just fine, but when I boot the same machine into suse 11.2 64 bit using kde and try using konsole I get: cannot connect to x server
The command I'm using to log in is: ssh -X -l username host I doubt the problem is with the server I'm logging into or it wouldn't work in windows, not really sure what to look for as I've never had a problem using x11 forwarding from a linux client before only windows ones
I just converted our whole office from many flavors of Windows, and windows server 2000 to Ubuntu Server and Kubuntu for desktops. All went beautifully and the staff is warming up to my move(the first think one noticed was that Open Office can ready both older DOC and newer DOCX Word files, which MS Office can't do). The Ubuntu 10.04 Server was a learning experience because I added a lot of things other than just service Samba files(intranet, internal mail server, MySql, etc). Going on 3 weeks and not one problem with printing, incompatible document formats etc! But getting it all working was fun because things make sense and are visible. Windows is fine when things work but when it doesn't it is very mysterious and unfriendly. All was fine except when I tried to install Kubuntu 10.04 on a spare laptop.
It worked perfectly with the live CD and even a bootable persistent version on a flash drive. But when installing a normal HD install, all went well but I can't find the workgroup on the network. I am a pretty much novice so really do not know where to start looking. I can ping the server and internet and the new intranet work on the wireless and wired connections. Just can't see the network workgroup. Where to start looking? or maybe just reformat and start again. I just tried booting from the CD and the USB Flash drive again and both of those work well, just slow. For those wondering if it is a good move, consider what a support relievf it would be to have all your desk machines on the exact same page in terms of security updates and versions, and so easy to keep current. Besides the UI is really pretty cool.
I tried for two days to install ubuntu server to my computer from a cd. Whenever I tried burning to a CD-RW (using two programs at highest and lowest speeds), my cd always said it had corrupt files. So I setup a virtualbox harddisk that was setup tonuse my slave harddisk and installed ubuntu server in virtualbox successfully. Now when I boot my server, it won't connect to my network. Long story short, I have taken lo out of my interfaces and tried resetting my dhcp ip address by releasing and renewing it using dhclient. I have realized that eth0 doesn't exist (it shows up in windows). I think that all I need to do is add eth0 to ubuntu...
finding the best protocol for my server's file sharing. I will use this with 3 macs running 10.4.11 , one running 10.6.8, and one running 10.7 AND 10.6.7 AND Ubuntu 11.04. My server is going to be running Gentoo. I also need something where i can access it over the internet(and I'm using dyndns for my internet access(acessing from a outside machine)) with encryption and little hassle. I need the ability to be able to mount in finder and multiple users to be able to open a file.
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.
I've gotten this in the past with other PCs, but have been able to fix it by deleting my connection in Network Manager and recreating it. I'm using DHCP. This is OpenSUSE 11.3 on a HP Mini-110 Netbook.Here's the weird part, before anyone starts sending me to resolv.conf or asking for "lspci" stuff. When I'm in a terminal on this netbook, I can enter "host google.com" and it works. I can enter, "host download.opensuse.org" and it works fine. I get an IP address. If I manually enter the IP address in Firefox, I go to the site. But if I enter "www.google.com" in Firefox, it very quickly responds with, "Firefox can't find the server at google.com.""Browse Offline" isn't checked. (Think about it: if it was, I couldn't enter the IP address and go to a site, anyway.) This is a brand new install of OS 11.3, Firefox 3.6.6. But one other interesting thing: the software updater reported that common "curl" error, saying that IT couldn't resolve the addresses, either.
a new hardisk and a reinstall later I find myself face with 2 problems now. firstly I followed, [URL]... which seemed to work fine, accross the network I can "see" all the workgroup computers. Now try login to karmic's or (other linux box) jaunty, can't find network path. tried turning off the firewalls, still no go. the two linux boxes can chat merrily, and the 2 windows boxes can chat, but to each other. however after fidling a bit , on karmic i now get
Quote: Could not display "network:///" Nautilus cannot handle "network" locations
so firstly how do i reinstall everything, the how deal with windows.
I have used ubuntu in the past but had a lot of hardware issues with it and unfortunately moved back to windows (( BUT i have tried Ubuntu again and all seems to work great except wifi My wifi connection is sort of working because when i run SUDO IWLIST SCAN it does pull up all available networks. But in the network manager icon on the panel i left click but i see no networks and can't connect to anything. I WOULD LOVE TO keep Ubuntu and use it permanently but I must get wifi working or else this won't be possible.
I would like to make my Fedora 13 box a DHCP server for my network. I can not find dhcpd in YUM. Is there a way to make my Fedora box a dhcp server? This was relay easy with Suse, but my Opensuse box just suffered a hard drive failure.
I recently saw a ..... vid where a guy had a very cool dockbar on some linux distro, he didn't say which. It was much like windows 7's dockbar (lower taskbar on the desktop) and it looked really freakin cool. He called it a dockbar, but I can't find anything in the ubuntu repositories that actually works. Do yall know where I can find one?
I been struggling with this since Karmic and I know others have as well. This is really the only thing making me keep a Windows install around for my personal stuff.
Problem: Convert .TS files to iPod or really any smaller format keeping A/V sync after edit. I can covert my .TS file perfectly if I do not edit it but I want to just do a simple, quick trim of 2 mins from beginning and end.
HandBrake with convert the file perfectly but cannot trim. Avidemux does a great job on the video but I always have to play with the audio shift to get it in sync. It is usually betwenn -250ms to -1000ms off but I cannot count on it. If I run the video through DGIndex in Wine or view it with Mediainfo both programs detect the an offset problem but they are always wrong by almost 500ms and it is never constant.
Regular video editing I have pretty good luck with my normal DV files and I could even run the .TS files through other programs but it is too time consuming to be useful form this simple task. Anytime I want to take my recorded TV .TS files I cannot edit them quickly without making a full project out of it in Openshot Cinelerra, etc.
Has anyone found a quick, reliable way to do some lite video trimming in Ubuntu and keep A/V sync without having to resort to any Windows programs?
EDIT: Also I really do not want to resort to have to demux separately either. I know I am asking a lot but I got spoiled with a couple of Windows programs that will edit without reencode programs like VideoReDo can do the editing and converting all at once (for $100 !).
On Linux Mint (Gnome) i used to go to Network drive. that is on the right hand side of Nautilus there is a short cut for Network. in there i could see my network hard drive and other laptops connected to the network, and i could access my files. but on OpenSuse, when i open the network folder, nothing comes up. may be it needs some sort of configuration.
I have a USB WiFi adapter that my Ubuntu desktop install (10.10) automatically detects, and it works great. I just used the alternate installer to set up an old box as a server, and it doesn't install the driver for the adapter. lsusb finds the adapter, but I don't get a wlan* listed in /dev/. how I can determine what module(s) are used to run this adapter on the desktop so I can load them on the older box? Or is there some package I should install from the CD to help auto-detect the adapter?
So, in finishing my nFlux slack current edition.I have set it up for users to do certain things in console and one of the things I want is a way to view slackbook-2.0 in runlevel 3 console.I cant find a pdf reader that works in command line mode and I cant figure out how to either convert slackbook 2.0 pdf into html/text Or find a slackbook download that is html or text?I tried converting it using pdftotext, which didnt work very well So, I need a command line pdf viewer or a converter that works good?
I try to understand the way the network-admin retrieve and set information about the network connections, and after reviewing thee code, I still dont undertsnad how it does it. I thought that it should use maybe linux commands such as iwconfig or ifconfig or by using ioctl for get/set the parameters of the wireless, but I did not find such things in the code. It also does not use AT commands for modem devices parameters.I see that it uses liboobs files, but after veiwing the code, I still don't understand how it works.
I thank you if you can give me some clue about it.These question comes since I need to make a program which connects to wireless devices (possibly several wifi and modems devices can be connected ), and I try to think how to set/get the network parameters, I thought that a good start will be to look at how network-admin works.
On my Acer netbook (AOA-150-1635) the wireless works fine with WinXP, Ubuntu, and used to work with Suse 11.1. I replaced the Suse 11.1 with a clean network install of Suse 11.2. I couldn't get the wireless to work and did another network install using the wireless. When the install was completed I could not get the wireless to work with Suse 11.2. When I run the "collectNWData.sh" it shows--
!!! CND0120E: Network card wlan0 has no IP address wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down
I looked up error CD0120E and changed the network devices setup to "traditional". The wireless "scan" picked up the routers and I added the encryption keys. Still no joy. I ran "collectNWData.sh" again and it said it is better to use the Network Manager.
!!! CND0180I: The system can't ping external IP address 188.8.131.52 !!! CND0150E: There might be a problem with the default gateway definition 10.1.1.1 on interface eth0
Going back to Yast, Network Devices, I set Network Manager. The result is that it is back to the beginning with "collectNWData.sh" giving the original error.
Cannot activate network device eth0!"device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization".i cannot find my network card while i set up network configuration Now I use dual boot window 7 and fedora 9,I cannot find my network card in select network adapter while network configuration ,i have a network card Atheros AR8132 PCI-E fast Ethernet controller NDIS(620)and for wired in Accer laptop .
It has been a while and many ubuntu updates since i connected the windows laptop, it used to work fine but this ubuntu machine keeps telling me the cable is unplugged. When i boot into windows XP the network works fine and the laptop can connect through the network to use the internet. I have a very simple home network ... 3 pc into one switch. I am by no stretch of the imagination good with networking
My school has (once again) chosen to change their wireless network. This means it has gotten a lot slower, and that only our hotspot works. Our hotspot however is secured so that im unable to enter facebook, and a lot of other websites, etc. So what i did in windows was installing a program called hotspot shield, which redirects you ip through a server, so the LAN Admin basically have no control of what you're doing if he haven't got more skill than the one we have. I think what Hotspot shield does is making a vpn connection (correct me if im wrong) and i would certainly like to do that i ubuntu as well.
I have written an application that uses PHP, Apache, and MySQL. It is for lot tracking some materials for the company that I work for. I downloaded a premade WAMP (Windows, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack to run on my laptop and made my application.
Everything about it seemed to work fine when I moved it over to my company's Linux (LAMP) server, but later I realized that one key variable was not getting passed between pages like it should have been. I moved the file back to my windows box and it still worked. When I look at my database, it becomes obvious to me that $pqid does not get passed from the intermediate page. $pqid is a value that is POST'ed from a form in a primary page to my intermediate page, and I use a hidden field in a form (on my intermediate page) to pass it to the (final) processing page.
The final processing page does not seem to get the value passed to it on my Linux box. That said, I doubt that my problem is a Linux/Windows problem, but rather an issue in some PHP setting that I missed. I have looked at the phpinfo() files for both servers, and assume that they hold my answer, but I am overwhelmed at the sheer volume of (mostly meaningless to me) data.
My code is below:
This code is within a "POST" type form, and the value for $pqid is posted to the intermediate page, where this code lives.
my problem is that the wired internet is working on and off, or not even that, only when it wants too. I have googled and googled, which by the way is not loading at all at the moment, and have not found anything. And i really don't know what's wrong. Some more details: 1) Finished installing suse 11.2 with gnome, yesterday. Internet, and google worked fine right off the bat. I have a laptop and so i suspended it to see if everything was working. 2) Bring back the laptop, no internet. I reboot, internet works (google included). 3) I leave the laptop alone, it goes to sleep mode (or what comes after screensaver).
I bring it back, no internet, i reboot, no internet. So i go to windows. 4) Came back to suse, now, and i have internet and google does not load! This is all with wired internet, i haven't had a chance to try the wireless (there isn't a signal for me to try). However, i am positive it won't work with the luck i've been having. Also, a few days ago i had suse with kde and the internet worked continously. I know it can't be related to the GUI, but it's peculiar.
It may be not correct place for asking but I will give a try. There is a "strange" problem with network on computer of my wife. Sometimes it works sometimes it does not (under WIN7), it complains that LAN cable is not plugged in. On the same computer it always works if I boot computer from Ubuntu CD. And it always works on my computer (Debian testing). Under Linux i can see intensive blinking of LAN card diodes, under windows it blinks few times and than stops. I have little, if any knowledge about LAN hardware. But based on what I see and same logic i supposed the following: Driver of network card is programed to recognize certain levels of signal, and probably in win driver those levels a set a bit higher than in linux. when because of some reasons signal in LAN cable goes below some level, the card under win7 cannot see the network.
I mount my NFS shares with fstab entries likexxxx.xxxx.xx:/srv/vdr /media/vdr_video nfs noauto,user,bg,soft,intr,retry=5 0 0 With openSUSE 11.2 works this fine. With openSUSE 11.4 installation (no upgrade) only NFS mount works fine. The umount command works only with root.
i have a hp 6500 e709a printer. have configured for network printing and would like to use the scan facility.i have tried to scan from the printer but it does not find the computer. the hp documents mention advanced firewall information on incoming udp ports and tcp ports etci believe it is with my machine as my son has a windows box with the hp software and i have managed to scan from that machine.
Could anybody confirm that the D-LINK DWA-556 wireless N PCI-E network card works with Lucid Lynx 64 bit? Im looking for a reliable wireless network card that if possible works out of the box on Lucid 64 bit, so far my search has lead me to the above card, If anyone has hands on experience of this card on lucid 64
for some reason, ubuntu cant see it anymore. so how to fix? windows still prints to this printer on the network. I deleted the printer in ubuntu and tried to redetect and now it says no printer at that address.
before I deleted it, I recall it saying something about the backend had failed?
I have a script that works fine on a commercial server and my CentOs Box at home but doeasn't work with another commercial server (Where we need it to).I have pulled the PHPINFO.PHP from both and wondering if someone could tell me which parameters to compare when the following happens:The script seems to do the HTML/Java and outputs the PHP script on the page , but this site has many other PHP scripts working fine:
I am unable to connect to a WEP-protected network. the Network manager log shows either a DHCP timeout, or a failure to associate. (attached below).Changing to WPA is not an option, as the network is not controlled by me. This is with the rt61pci driver for a Ralink 2500 series chipset.(Rosewill RNX-G300EX card)Manually forcing an IP does not result in a connection either. This is with the latest OpenSuSE 11.4, all patches applied. Router is a D-Link DIR-613, and I know the passphrase I'm using is correct because it connects both on my Android (what else?) phone, and my lappy when I boot XP.
I installed OpenSUSE11.4 yesterday.The dual boot option works.The wireless works in win 7 but I cannot get it enabled in SUSE.Is there a reason why the keyboard keys will not work to enable the wireless.I have an acer laptop.

There is something strange going on with Pidgin in Debian 6. I have just installed the system, then Pidgin, then configured my MSN accounts and chatted; but after rebooting, it no longer works. It just hangs while trying to connect - this is what I see from strace:
- a largish number of times. My very rough and ready thoughts about this so far are that it is probably not Pidgin that has an error, since 1) It worked initially, and 2) I am pretty sure the developers would have know about it very quickly if this was a general problem in Pidgin. On the other hand, my networking seems otherwise to be fine - s what is going on here?
I posted this already in the absolute beginner section, but no answer was found, so I thought I might try this place..Long story as short as possible:
- I installed Ubuntu 9.10 for a friend who was fed up with WinXP crashing all the time
- After the install, networks was broken. I could ping sites outside the LAN, could connect to the router via firefox, but NO application could access the web. - The router works just fine, I tried with my own notebook.
- Disabling ipv6 in grub (edit /etc/default/grub and 'sudo update-grub') seemed to solve the problem.
- Then update the standard packages + install restricted extras and boom, Network gone: No ping to sites outside the LAN, no nothing. Still can connect fine to the router and even the remote desktop connection works, connecting over the internet. But that's it.
I have tried setting the mpu to a value recommended by my isp, I have set static ip and dns, I really don't now what to try any more.
