This time I'm attempting to get Xorg up, and running. I've done a minimal Debian install from a network install disc. I used aptitude the install the following, with the dependencies configured automatically I assume:
- xserver-xorg-video-n (Where n is your graphics card family)
I've rebooted, and no X. I've typed in 'xstart', with no result. I've even typed in 'Xorg' at the CLI where it loads to a black screen, and hangs. I had to power off the PC by holding down the power button.Is there something I'm missing to configure/run it for the first time?
Alright, every time I boot or shutdown my routing box, it hangs at configuring and deconfiguring network interfaces. Below is my interfaces file. I see no errors or warnings in my log and I am running a pure kernel, not tainted with proprietary drivers. All of my hardware is 100% supported.
I've been following this guide for squeeze: [URL] After getting the wireless-tools and firmware-ralink packages installed with no internet, I managed to installthe driver using modprobe rt2870sta (the 4th step). With the module loaded and the device plugged in (a RangePlusWireless Network USB Adapter with the WUSB100v2 chipset), iwconfig returned something like
and then ifconfig wlan0 up returned ERROR while getting interface flags: no available device
I am totally new to Linux and have just installed ubuntu 10.10. After configuring the network interface via dhcp I started getting these messages that come in so frequently I can't configure anything else.
Why I am getting this messages and more importantly how do I get rid of them.
I just installed suse on this computer, and am wanting to allow other computers to store files on it as a file server. I was reading the online manual and in the personal file preferences, it shows an option to enable 'share public files over network'. The problem is I don't see that option when I open up file preferences. All I see is an option to allow sharing using bluetooth, nothing about sharing over the network. When I look in the network I can see the computer running suse, but when I try to connect to it, it says 'unable to mount drive: connection refused by server.'
I have a devolo MicroLink 56k Fun LAN modem, which I could configure in openSuse 11.2 as an DSL device. With 11.2 it worked fine. But it isn't possible in 11.3 to configure it, because I cannot set the dial up internet provider phone number for this DSL device.I also tried it to configure it as a modem, but then it used the /dev/modem device, which is the wrong device for this LAN modem.
i am too new for linux..I installed Ubuntu 10.10 desktop edition from windows.When i am trying to configure network connections i am facing problems
Code: udo pppoeconf no working ethernet card could be found.If you do have an interface card which was not autodetected so far,you probably wish to load the driver manually using the modconf utility.Run modconf now? /usr/sbin/pppoeconf: 523: modconf: not found Ifconfig
I have been using OpenLDAP 2.4 with OpenSuse 11 without any issues but I now want to configure replication and can't see how it's done . The OpenLDAP 2.4 admin guide refers to the slapd.conf configuration file but this is not used by YaST.
entries for connecting to broadband. Was OK with ubuntu 8.04 which had boxes for DNS server, etc. The 10.04 asks for MAC address (?) and there is a space for "DHCP client ID". I don't understand these terms. how I may proceed, especially exact syntax for any command line work. I am in Chennai/Madras, and have a BSNL wired broadband connection to my Dell laptop.
My DNS server is baring 192 series IP for ex: 192.168.10.100, need to configureloadbalancer IP in that DNS server, where loadbalancer is baring 172 series IP. for ex : 220.127.116.11.is it possible to cofigure the loadbalancer ip in DNS server? if it is, please let me know the configuration details and procedure.
"Need help with entries for connecting to broadband. Was OK with ubuntu 8.04 which had boxes for DNS server, etc. The 10.04 asks for MAC address (?) and there is a space for "DHCP client ID". I don't understand these terms. I will appreciate some step-by-step instruction or example of how I may proceed, especially exact syntax for any command line work. I am in Chennai/Madras, and have a BSNL wired broadband connection to my Dell laptop." I have repeated what I tried in the ubuntu forum without success. I'm really in newbie category, and not comfortable with computer or internet jargon. I can still connect with ubuntu 8.04 and firefox, just once daily. In a later post I also added: In Ubuntu 8.04 there was a system> admin> network tab (missing in 10.04). In the connections tab "wired" was checked. The general tab had my computer name (tsq-laptop) for host, and a blank box for domain name. The DNS tab had 192.168.1.1 in the servers box (presumably my service provider BSNL), and nothing in search domains. The hosts tab had a list of IP addresses and aliases, the first few being:
127.0.0.1 - local host 127.0.1.1 - tsq-laptop ::1 - ip6 local host ip6 loopback fe00:: - ip6 localnet, .... (and a few more such I think most (or all) of these entries were generated automatically by the system, since I don't understand the jargon at all! I don't recall having any difficulties then, some two years back.Before that I had major problems in using the internal modem for a dial-up connection, but got detailed help by e-mail/internet from some really knowledgeable people in Europe and elsewhere regarding linmodem configuration, which I followed blindly and it worked! In 10.04 there is only the taskbar icon to edit settings, and it has a different structure. It asks for MAC address (example 00.11.22.33.44.55). Other info required is IPv4 settings, DHCP client ID, about routers and other stuff. There may be other system settings to be made, which I can try with proper guidance. The ubuntu help page gives very sketchy information, and the images are not clear at all. No response to that till second day. Subsequently: In the 'wired' tab the 'routes' button popped a table where I entered address as 127.0.0.1, and netmask as 255.0.0.0, leaving gateway and metric blank. This is all geek stuff for me - I'm an old-fashioned engineer from the slide-rule era!
Should all this have been in the newbie forum? Thanks, =TeeSquare=
My goal is to have users(Unix Users like root on host1) use evolution /sendmail to send and receive emails between users( Unix users either from host1 or any other host on n a private network. The network is a private network with a few servers without any connection to Internet and no DNS. They resolve one another by /etc/hosts. with smtp configured am able to send and receive emails on one machine(host1) from unix user abc on host1 to user xyz on host1 and vice versa. the commad i used to test is host1@abc #echo "this is a test mail" |mailx zyx@host1 But when i tried sending from user abc on host1 to user xyz on host2 its giving error for DNS unable to resolve hostname.
the commad i used to test is host1@abc# echo "this is a test mail" |mailx zyx@host2 create a simple sendmail config so that i can send mails between multiple hosts using unix usernames within one network. I can use one of the server as mail server and rest as clients. I dont want to configure any other softwares for pop or imap access. I want to keep it simple and use evolution on the clients to send emails between one another on the private network without internet.
Does anyone havea good tutorial on Fedora's network scripts, how to edit them, in what order they are called, etc. What I want to do seems simple, but something in the bootup keeps changing it. Right now, I have an image of Fedora Core 7 created in a server with 2 Ethernet cards. I need to specify static IP addresses for each card. Thats simple, and I did that. Now, heres the tricky part, I need to be able to clone this image and place it onto other exact duplicates of the hardware, and have all of the settings stay the same.
What happens here, is that eth0 and eth1 are stored somewhere as devices, and upon boot on a different machine, the Fedora will mount new network cards(different MAC addresses) as eth1 and eth2. It then mvoes my ifcfg-eth0/1 to a backup, and creates two brand new network setting's files, which initialize to DHCP. This creates an issue, becuase these machines do not have monitors nor keyboards attached, nor is their a DHCP server, so its a pain when I swap the machine out, to have to go in with a keyboard/mouse/monitor and reconfigure the network settings before I can connect to it over the LAN.
So does anyone have any advice on how to do this? No matter what i tried, booting the image in a new PC caused Fedora to create two new devices and create brand new network settigns for them, both initialized to DHCP. Hell, I wouldn't care if it created brand new devices, if it would initialize them to static IP addresses that I am expecting.
i am totally new to Opensuse and to filezilla. I formerly used winscp - a windows-client for ssh.now i have a linux box and want to connect to the server via ssh ing filezilla.Can i use the same keys as i used in WinSCP - where should i store them and the third question.I read something about a certain so called certificate-file that has to be created!?
I configure my server just like on the link found in novell i hope some can help me here. my client is able to recieve DHCP address and everything is working fine on the network how ever my client cannot pullup any website, but my server is able to pullup whats wrong on this one.
Cool Solutions: HOW-TO: Set Up a SUSE 10 Machine As a Router
First off I would like to install a GUI for samba. After that I want to set up my network so that router stays as the server for the network I have four windows computers already hanging off of the router. This machine which has Slackware on it is hardwired, directly connected, to the router via cat-5 cables. I have samba installed already and I just need to configure it correctly.
For some simulation, I am trying to configure a setup of 3 ubuntu desktops (one of them with multiple network cards) to behave in the following way:
Each one of them should be a separate network not seeing the others (including multicast addresses) They need to have internet access through the machine with multiple network cards. So from the point of view of each machine they define a LAN in which it is the only device and have internet access through the gateway machine.
What do I need to do to configure these machines for the above setup?
Installing Ubuntu Studio failed automatic configuring the network so I need configure it manually. The computer ask for a DOMAIN NAME but I never had configured any Domain. Actualy I had another ubuntu computer. I know the mane of that computer but how can I get the DOMAIN NAME from the other computer?
I am trying to configure my IPv6 network. My computers are behind a Fedora gateway IPv6-configured, which is working great. But for computers inside my network, it seems I am getting only internal addresses from DHCP. Here is my ifconfig for an internal computer:
I have two mice, both are three button (left, right and middle) with scroll, one PS/2 and one wireless. The wireless is working properly and the PS/2 is not. The right button, the middle button and the scroll do not work.# X -configure has detected only one, which one? Do i need to put another Section Mouse1 for the second mouse? Why do i have on the Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7" so many buttons? From what i searched it should have been Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" (that's for the scroll button, up and down). Running Squeeze stable.
