Debian Configuration :: No Network Access In Gnome
Apr 5, 2011
I've installed Debian on a Sun Ultra 450 Enterprise system using the net install version, so I know that my network is working correctly. However, now that Debian is installed and I bring up Gnome, I have no network access. I've set eth0 to DHCP, and have pointed it to my DNS server, but it never gets any information from the DNS server.
I've looked through /etc/network/interfaces, which looks like this:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface allow-hotplug eth0
#NetworkManager#iface eth0 inet dhcp
which is correct.
So far, nothing works. Why would the Debian network install disk work, but not be smart enough to set my network correctly from the start once I'm actually running Linux? Also, how do I get the network running in Gnome?
Ive been trying to setup bonding on my debian lenny box for about a week now with still no luck.i thinks its ver 2.6.26 or summing like that.The nics are bonded and it has all the network details but for some reason I cannot ping anything on the network and I cannot ping the lenny box.
I ran my daily update of Debian Stretch using Synaptic, and when done had an un-installed update for ifupdown remaining marked in the list. By right clicking I was able to get Synaptic to say it would install the update, along with quite a few other updates. In the process of doing this, my screen went dark and stayed dark. On reboot, I get the Grub menu to select which Linux system I want to boot, but whichever one I choose, including older ones, I get to a command line, not the Gnome GUI.
I tried to complete the update of ifupdown using apt-get, only to discover that my machine no longer has any network connection, let alone Internet.
I recently installed two PC with debian lenny (kernel 2.6.26). One is called serveur-debian1 and the second one serveur-debian2. I have installed gnome,samba, mysql5, apache2, php5, and Virtualbox,bridge-tools on them. On serveur-debian2, i installed an other virtual debian lenny with apache2,mysql5,php5,nagios and centreon on it to view my network. I remember having installed a soft to access nntp on serveur-debian2 in order to test nagios.
Since a few days, i have problem to access to my servers. rom my windows 7 client, i try to ping serveur-debian1. Response is OK but not for all resquets Always from the same computer, i try to ping serveur-debian2. Response is OK but not for all again.
When i launch a ping on serveur-debian1 and serveur debian2 at the same time i have:
ping 1 to 10: serveur-debian1: response OK serveur-debian2: no response ping 11to 14: serveur-debian1: no response serveur-debian2: response OK ping 15 to 25: serveur-debian1: respone OK serveur-debian2: @ip serveur-debian1 network unreachable (there's no error, it shows me the ip of serveur-debian1)
If i switch on the debian virtual server on the serveur-debian2, and i ping it at the same time, the response is OK for all resquests. The problem is very strange. I can't have a correct connection and when i launch a request from a software which access the mysql server, the requests failed ...
I upgraded a Guruplug Display machine running Lenny to Squeeze. It's running Linux on a MicroSD device, running an ARM-cpu.

I've been using wicd (22.214.171.124 was the latest version on my desktop computer, maybe it got updated) without any problems for a long time. This morning after switching the thing on to read the morning news with a nice hot cup of coffee I got a number of funny Gui system messages: Wicd needs to access your computer's network cards.

I have installed apache php and mysql on my pc during debian installation... some of my friends complain they cannot access my webserver from their home and it's available only within my local network... Please help regarding this...
I just installed Debian and am getting a problem where I can't open the list of network connections. I can use the network manager applet to connect to wireless networks, but I cannot access the network connections list from there either (right click "edit connections)
I'm not incredibly knowledgeable with Linux, but I tried a few simple things I could think of like reinstalling the packages, or restarting the interfaces. (ifdown/up wlan0)
It's strange, because when I click "network connections," I see it show up for a second on the bottom panel, I get some rotating mouse icon while I wait a few seconds and then if goes away. Is there some kind of logfile that could help me identify the problem?
Using Debian 6 on eeePC1000HEB with Ath9k (i think) wireless card. Net Interface: wlan0
I am using Squessze and Gnome. When I try to use the gui System>Administration>Network or Users and Groups I get the error The configuration could not be loaded. You are not allowed to access the system configuration.Everything was working before. I read around a bit. In some cases,it was caused by mismatching group and password files after using the gui. I do not know how to check if they are matching. Of course I do not know for sure that is the problem in my case.
I'm trying to setup a wireless AP with my old asus eeepc, so it can act as a repeater to connect my android device on the other end of the apartment. I've already created the Wireless Access Point using hostapd. It took very little configuring, just changed from mode 'a' to 'g' and changed the channel from 60 to 1 and It was all set. Next I setup a dhcp server. Also simple enough using yast.
Up to this point, I was able to connect my android device to the newly created wireless network. However It doesn't have internet access. I guess I have to configure iptables for this, but I find it incredibly confusing! Here are a few specs to help with any examples: The laptop is connected to the internet through eth0 with IP 192.168.2.120 Hostapd is using wlan0, and I'm pretty sure it created mon.wlan0 So, to sum up, when I connect my android device to the network I can, for instance, see what ever pages apache is currently serving on the laptop, but can't access the internet.
I installed and tested both Windows server 2003 and Red Hat 9.0 with vmware workstation7. After installing 2003 can access internet but Red Hat can't. I want to test squid proxy server, send mail server, webserver etc. So, I would like to know how to setup WMware's network configuration for Red hat can access internet.
Below link is the configuration of VMware network setup both Server 2003 and Red Hat.

I am using wireless connection to access 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'm planning to use Debian as the OS for a firewall machine, which will sit between my internet connection and the rest of my computers. Now my network is all wired, no wireless whatsoever. I'm using the onboard the motherboards cat5 socket which seems to be using the VIA rhine driver and I'm also using a 3com 100MBps card.
I can list the machine spec if you want but it's nothing special, an old Athlon 64 rig with 1gb ram and an OEM motherboard, it all seems to work ok apart from the internet doesn't' seem to work. Lenny seems to detect both cards ok and I even used the net install CD and it managed to download everything using the 3com card.
The strange thing is when I'm in Lenny, I can't seem to connect. I can ping google, but when I try and view a webpage, the browser just sits there with a while screen... Could it be that using 2 network cards is confusing Debian? Right now I've only got the modem hooked up the the 3com card, and nothing connected to the onboard network card.
I have a windows based Domain Name Server (DNS) and I have a debian pc connecting to this network, obtaining an ip address via a DHCP server. I can ping any machine on the network using the ip address however I would like to be able to ping other machines on the network using their host names. For example I would like to be able to type... ping machine1HostName ... instead of ... ping 00.00.00.00 To do this I realise I need to tell debian to access the windows DNS but how can I do this?
I've just installed lenny from dvd, and am just settling in. I'm curious about virtual machines. so I've installed xen. With xen comes qemu by default. Now the setup I've recently become familiar with is Suse-11 which is quite slick.In Suse, Yast provides a distribution prepared virtual management section for xen, including an installer. Debian's setup is similar but not a clone. I want to try out the installer. Aside from the differences, debian has a screaming deficit. On booting dom0 in Lenny, if fails to get into gnome, badly. I can tell what's probably wrong, but I need to fix it. Now I'm also a gentoo fan and very practised at posting queries, so here goes.
Debian's config for X is somewhat unhelpful. The xorg.conf just states Configured device and configured monitor for its components. If it expanded on just what the settings were it would help. What I have is a frambuffer driver not loadinf or being implemented.
We have setup Squeeze a Test machine , just for some tests, without network, Internet etc. and we need to allow root login in Gnome. We've changed /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf:[security] AllowRoot=truebut still doesn't work.
I just downloaded and installed netinst version debian 126.96.36.199. I've had ubuntu before, and several usb live versions...but I really wanted to learn how linux works, and it was suggested I get debian. I've been unable to get anything accomplished, other than the basic install. Can't get gnome, or xwindows. Seems to me like I need more repositories. Need a Desktop! But mostly, I guess, I need a browser so I can hook up to here!
My computer is: Dell Latitude 2100 2gb ram Broadcom BCM4312
I tried to get Xterm. Went su, then apt-get install xterm...it's able to 'read' everything, but then no matter *what* I try to install, I get this same answer : E: Unable to locate package xterm
So I research, and it seems like I'm lacking in repositories. Here's my sources.list. I made a backup. I'm having to *type* everything in, on this computer, until I can get a browser working on the linux machine. So if there are typos I have ethernet cable hookup. I know from past experience sometimes this broadcom wireless card can be a problem. For now, I just want *anything* to work, and get some kind of hookup, so I can finish installing. I've reinstalled 3 times, with iso...
Here's my sources.list. Until I hear from one of you'all, I'm gonna look for a better one, and then vi edit it in here...
It looks like my web/ftp server has been hacked but I'm not sure how. I logged in tonight and found I had new mail. I read it and found some e-mails that had failed to send because I don't have mail setup (luckily). The e-mails were trying to send my user name and password to the e-mail address email@example.comI've no idea where to start, I use SSH, FTP now and then and it hosts a Wordpress site. The FTP users do not have access via SSH, only my user ID. However, the e-mails also contained another user ID that only has FTP access to the server.I've looked through the logs for rkhunter but it doesn't look like it found anything.
This is a perennial problem with Linux. I am just not comfortable moving a lot of casual files around as root. How can I have user access to a USB stick? I've done my Google searches and tried several methods, some of which work temporarily but not permanently. At the moment, I have this line in my /etc/fstab: /dev/sdd† †/media/usb_flash† ntfs† noauto,users,rw,umask=0 0 0 As with other methods, this worked last week but not now.
All I want to do is insert a USB stick, transfer some files and remove the stick. I want to do this as a user. This should be simple. What is the trick?
I have recently installed Debian 504 AMD64, when I try to access "System" --> "Administration" --> "Users and groups" logged in as root, I get the following message: "The configuration could not be loaded. You are not allowed to access the system configuration." The system does not even ask for a password and the result is the same if I log in as a normal user.
I have installed from a single ISO DVD downloaded from the internet and read the DVDs of my previous Debian distro to install packages not included on DVD 1 of Debian 504 although I do not think this unusual approach can have any effect on the installation. I suspect I'll have to boot in single user mode but I have never done any troubleshooting at the command line. (/etc/passwd and /etc shadow look OK).
I'm trying to install KDE, but I can't. I've tried using tasksel, but it gave me an error, so I tried to install task-kde-desktop myself. When I did that, I ran into some dependency issues:
Code: Select allSome packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:

I got some trouble with suspending/hibernation using gnome or mate. None of them can suspend the T450 correcly neither to disk nor to ram. If I run pm-utils from a terminal pm-sleep and pm-hibernate work fine both. So I guess all I need is to change the commands which are run by clicking on the suspend or hibernate button, but how to change what is behind the GUI.
I (and those who kindly helped) went through hell building the driver for mi wireless, but apparently that's over now. The reason I know that is that when I go to System-->Administration-->Network, I can see the interfaces that are detected: Wired Connection, which I enabled by setting the automatic dhcp option, and Wireless Connection, which is not activated. When I double click in Wireless Connection, a window opens with an unchecked box saying "Enable this connection" so I check the box and the previously greyed options become subject for editing. I have two setting I can configure: Wireless Setting, which have Network Name, password type and Network password Connection Settings, which has Configuration, IP Adress, Subnet mask and Gateaway Adress.
Since I'm hopping to get wireless working to a point which i can automatically connect to wireless whose passwords I know or that are open (like un public spaces) I think the best option to choose in Connection Settings-->Configuration is Automatic Configuration (DHCP). When I choose that, all other options under Connections Settings become grayed.
In Wireless Settings-->Password type, the default choice was WPA Personal. Network Name and network password are blank. The problem is that, as it is, the "OK" button of the Network window is grayed out, so the only option is to Cancel, in which case the Wireless Network remains dissabled. I noticed that if I write something (anything) in the field of Network Name (ESSID) the OK button can be selected, but I don't know what should I write in that space. How do I know which name is appropiate? Does it matter? Can I choose whatever name I want?

how can i change the default language ,i have to .because if gnome is in English ,i can't run the Chines input method.
I have squeeze with gnome. Various apps let me log in as root when needed to but if I logout as a user and try to login as root it won't let me (won't authenticate password). I had this problem before and reinstalled Debian and definitely checked for it to allow me to do this and it worked for a while after new install. Apparently some update overrode my preferences. This is a major defect and may force me to abandon Debian. I don't use root often but I don't have any use for a operating system that won't let me use it. Anyone know how to correct this. I am not interested in using a terminal on a regular basis or ever for that matter.
