A network client computer gets ip address from dhcp server, loads initrd and failed on Loading Istallation System stage 4 or 5. If I try to continue installation in manual mode I get an error net_activate: ifconfig eth0 up failed I tryed network cards from different vendors it did not help. Ubuntu linux installs successfully in current environment.
I have been noticing a trend on boxes running 11.4 getting RX dropped packets where prior to 11.4 they did not get them. Basically every box running 11.4 now logs dropped RX packets. Have tried changing cables, and in one case replaced the NIC with a different brand (and driver) nic. Also played with receive buffers and yet the counters still increment. In addition to OpenSUSE, I run several operating systems to include Centos, Scientific Linux, Debian, OpenIndiana, HP-UX, VMS and so forth. So far this anomaly has only shown up on machines running OpenSUSE 11.4. Any one else noticing this on your OS 11.4 machines? If so, were you able to resolve?
The computer and system in question is the laptop from my description and openSUSE 11.3 with a different kernel from this repository :[URL]..free to move this thread if it should reside in the beta/prerelease forums section. The IMHO relevant information about my hardware and system is shown below.
The kernel I'm using :
Code: grzes@opensuse:~> Linux opensuse.local 184.108.40.206-1-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-02-25 19:59:41 +0100 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux The hardware and drivers I'm using : Code: 02:00.0 Network controller : Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) [168c:002b] (rev 01)
I have a problem with the network. Worth two network cards and Ian wan. Do not take the ip. When the system boots not included until you do the command ifconfig eth0 up. The network card is connected to a router, he does not see it. Router working, tested. Network card is working well, tested on Windows. RX RT packages go, withheld support for ipv6 and packages no longer go.
i know this is crazy, but im using a [URL] and have loaded a copy of "red hat linux 7" on the computer. i have no idea what kind of hardware config/spec stuff i should have in my immediate vision, and if i did i'm not sure how i would make sense of it all. linux loaded fine. didnt save drivers. eth0 not showing in ifconfig report, but lo is connecting to network, other host cannot ping linux and vice versus
can mount a cdrom, but not a usb flash dont quite understand how the load methods work involving /mnt/cdrom/"usbutils-0.86tar.gz" eth0 problems and gnome rpm stupidity keeps me from upgrading sys from old version to a newer version, cant even find the cmd to show me that info, sorry. have usb files i want to mount, dont know how to loAD THE CDROM FOLES, SO EVEN THAT ISNT WORKING OUT HAVE DISCS WITH howtos just need to stay focused on steps to get desired end result, while trying to learn too much info for what im currently doing between all the f!@#@ing windows i have open.
I am trying to install squeeze on a new netbook Packard Bell Dot S2 installer fails at not able to make an ethernet connection through this >> Atheros AR8131/AR8132 Gigabit/Fast Ethernet Controller. So i am unable to make progress with the install? I am using the debian-testing-i386-businesscard image.
I also have a wireless connection but thats a wpa setup that doesnt seem to be supported on the installer just wep or am I wrong?
I'm working in windows, and that's why I have been able to access the network. In F14, I was able to access the router address while the internet access ain't. Tried restarting network, and still the problem persists. Tried [URL] and the only thing that i've infered is that IPv4 Failed: FATAL plus, the routing table showed 0.0.0.0 as one of the entries (Gateway). So, i've deleted the wired network configuration from the Network Configuration and checked whether the os would pick it up automatically. It still didn't work.
I am working with ubuntu and my eth0 connection was up and working fine untill some days back when all of a sudden it seemed to disapper. I was able to access the net through it before. But now it has vanished and i donno when. i tried ifconfig eth0 up but no use. The result of cat /etc/network/interfaces is as follows
I cannot seem to create a tun device using ifconfig, even though the module is loaded, and the node tun is present in /dev/net and appears to have correct access permissions, trying to use nstx which requires the tun device. Only thing I can think of is adding an alias, but not sure where, since there is no /etc/modprobe.conf or /etc/modules.conf in SUSE 11.3.
I have created my own distribution with susestudio.com , based on jeOS template and it works well But I have some problems with network configuration. I make a default configuration with susestudio ( configuration -> General -> network ) and I put for example 172.16.0.185 address. I also put a script which configures IP address with different informations coming from for example a serial port to make my own IP address. This script make the new address and call the ifconfig system program. For example, the script calls "ifconfig eth0 172.16.0.182". And now, I can ping the two addresses, 172.16.0.185 and 172.16.0.182. Is this normal ? I thought the new command "ifconfig eth0 172.16.0.182" would overwrite the old value ( 172.16.0.185 ). It works as this on other distribs ( like ubuntu ) but not on opensuse.
I know that I can have 2 addresses but using the following syntax : "ifconfig eth0:1 A.B.C.D" (if kernel supports aliases ) , and I don't know if it is normally possible to have 2 address from the same subnet. How can I overwrite the default config , and not to have the first address available ?
I'm trying to get my Ubunutu and OSX systems to connected via a cat5 cable to transfer some large files around very quickly. Now i know normally this would require a crossover cable as it's a direct connection but the macbook/OSX can handle changing the wires round to make it work like a crossover cable as I've done it before. However the macbook creates a self-assigned IP or as I've tried I've set it to : IP:10.10.0.1 Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Then I've setup the Ubuntu system both through the System>Admin>Network panel as: IP:10.10.0.2 Subnet: 255.255.255.0 and my /etc/network/interfaces file is the same; #lines added to get static crossover cable working auto lo iface eth0 inet static address 10.10.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0
Yet when I run ifconfig in the terminal eth0 isn't present Code: htpc:~$ ifconfig lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1 RX packets:912 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:912 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:371613 (371.6 KB) TX bytes:371613 (371.6 KB)
htpc:~$ ifconfig eth0 eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 90:fb:a6:e4:c0:b0 BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) Interrupt:23 Base address:0xe000
Also even when I try and ping 10.10.0.2 either from my OS X or the actually Ubunutu machine all I get is: Code: ping 10.10.0.1 PING 10.10.0.1 (10.10.0.1): 56 data bytes Request timeout for icmp_seq 0 Request timeout for icmp_seq 1 Request timeout for icmp_seq 2 Request timeout for icmp_seq 3
Yet the Ubunutu machine is also connected to Wifi and when I ping it's own address I get the expected response. To me it just seems like eth0 isn't being recognised somwhere or it's not turned on yet I can't seem to find any toggles or settings for it anywhere. Further more if I check >System>Admin>Network Tools the IP for eth0 is 0.0.0.0. What could be going wrong and why no IP set correctly?
I've got a vmware install of Fedora 12 running as a server. This install has the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file configured with the proper info and the service has been restarted. When I run ifconfig I only get the loopback interface, when I run ifconfig -a I can get the eth0, but without the pre-configured ip address. When I enter ifconfig eth0 up I can activate the interface, but without the afore mentioned ip address. I need to be able to yum ssh, install it, and run it with rsa keys. Can do none of this without an interface obviously.
Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: installing package xen-4.0.0_21091_06-0.1.1.x86_64 needs 27MB on the /boot filesystemI seem not to be able to change the size of the /boot, but 11.2 loads okay but not 11.3There only 19MB left from 66 and I can't make it bigger, I hope there is someone thathas seen this. I would like to see some of the update with XEN.
I am using Suse 10 sp2. By running ifconfig I am changing the mac address. Everything is happening successfully, but this is adapter losing the network connection. Even when I give a static IP. I am not able to ping any other IP.
I have finally gotten around to installing 11.3 x86_64 on a deskside PC. All went well with the installation until the last package, fetchmsttfonts-11.3-1.1.5-noarch, failed to connect to a server and produced a "Command exited with status 5" error. I have not yet clicked the "OK" button on the error popup. Is there any way to rescue this installation?
I had tried once before, and had clicked the "OK" button before looking things over to see what was the issue since I'd figuredwas nothing that couldn't be sorted out later.However, it aborted the install with the system largely unconfigured. I attempted to fix it but gave up and started a new install from scratch, which failed as described above.I was doing a netinstall, using the oss, non-oss, and update repos.
I would like to avoid having to restart the install yet another time since I do not have the packages cached locally and most certainly do not want to go thru the package selection phase again since I'd picked quite a few additional packges. If I can rescue this one it would be great. If I have to start over, is there a way to import the list of packages from this install into the installer during a hew install
I have a laptop running 11.2 with an internal Broadcom-based Wi-Fi card that's working fine. I'm trying to get 802.11n going with the WUSB600N. The USB ID on this device is 1737:0079. I believe this means it's a "V2" with an RT3572 chip.
No driver loads for this device when it's plugged in. If I do a "modprobe rt2870sta", a driver loads, and syslog shows "rtusb init" and "usbcore: registered new interface driver rt2870". But ifconfig -a doesn't show a new network interface. I've also tried building the RT3572 driver from the manufacturer's web site. It builds fine, and modprobe will load it, but I get the same results as the rt2870sta driver.
Last night while setting up wired & wireless connection in openSuse 11.2 Gnome version via YAST's ifup, I got wireless but lost wired connection (interface eth0). Dmesg shows that eth0 became eth1. I cannot get eth0 back. Is there any way to remedy this situation, eg. get info from the Ubuntu partition in my triple-boot laptop, without having to re-install openSUSE?
I'm new to this forum site and I was wondering how can I bridge a network between the eth0 and wlan0 connections?my eth0 NIC is a RealTek RTL8111B 10/100/1000 Ethernet Card (OnBoard) and my wlan0 NIC is a RealTek RTL8187B 802.11b/g WiFi USB Adapter Card.Are there any utilities, such as bridge-utils that I can use, except for Firestarter since Firestarter states that the eth0 connection is not established, or do I right-click on the network icon and select Edit Connections and go to Auto eth0 and under the IPv4 Address setting and select Shared to other computers and run a live connection there?The main reason is that I need an Internet connection for my Xbox 360, which is connected to my Linksys WRT54G 802.11b/g Wireless Router, that has DD-WRT firmware installed and 4 WiFi hotspots for any wireless device, such as my PSP, DS, DS Lite, Wii, Laptop(s), my brother's PC (needs a WiFi card), and my dad's PC (needs either a WiFi card or an Internet connection from my brother's computer to my dad's PC)

I wanted to avoid having to use my CDs, DVDs weren't an option, and I didn't have very large usb sticks. It seemed my only option for installing openSUSE onto my laptop was with some sort of network install/boot.
I ended up finding this really cool service, netboot.me. What you can do is download a very small image (<1MB) for a floppy, USB stick, or CD, and then boot off of it. Then you can either install pre-defined distros over the network (straight from the distro's servers), or you can make an account (by connecting your google account), and then make your own configuration. I managed to make a configuration for openSUSE 11.4, and I was able to completely install it, via only using one floppy disk and the internet!
My first step in the process was to download the floppy image. Since I was on a windows computer, I then downloaded rawwrite for windows, and I wrote the image straight to the floppy. After that, I restarted the computer and booted from the floppy. It loaded the image, then asked me to press a key or wait for 3 seconds. In order to boot from my configuration, this was the point where I had to press a key, and then choose the option of loading the custom configuration. The configuration I made has an ID of 434001 (which anyone is free to use). Unfortunately, according to their community, the gPXE "network stack" isn't very optimizied, so the initial two downloads took awhile (my speed was locked at 65 kB/s.)
It then began booting in the installation environment, which took about 15 minutes, although download speeds were now back at normal, faster speeds. I configured my installation, and let the package downloading begin!
i install kernel rpm after i boot that kernel network not working kernel name : kernel-rt-trace-220.127.116.11-132.el5.centos.i686 [URL] error "Bringing up interface eth0: Device eth0 has different MAC address than expected, ignoring."
When I try to run the Online Updates to the system through Yast I get the following errors for each package:
