OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Access Internet Installing From Live USB
Nov 6, 2010
Installing from Live USB: Installing from USB on my desktop (used this method for laptop install) goes without a hitch. EXCEPT, I notice there is no support for my wireless card chipset (Atheros 7413, used /bin/lspci to find). I download the drivers for Linux, but I need Make to build the drivers...ok. I download the Make files from my laptop, make coffee, slap the makefiles onto a flash drive and run the configure file on my desktop version of SUSE. Whoops, need a c compiler (odd that openSUSE did not come with gcc? bit confused on that). If you can't tell by now, I've been using linux for less than a month so I am what you would call a noob? After the lack of c compiler, I drove to my office to snag some DVDs to download the DVD iso image, hoping it would have some form of c compiler/make packaged, since the description does say the DVD has more software (can't find any prebuilt versions of either...?)
Installing from DVD: This was my next step. I wrote the iso image to a DVD and proceeded to boot from DVD. The installer fails at the system analysis, saying it cannot "create a repository". writing the iso to a second DVD produces the same result. Googling has not yielded a solution. tl;dr can't use openSUSE on my desktop because my wireless chipset is not suported by SUSE. I need Make to build the drivers, but I need a c compiler to compile Make, and I need the internet to get both for my machine.
can't access internet. The up and down icon appears by the network connection (upper right hand corner). When I review connection properties, I see that the computer has a valid address, subnet, gatway, dns, etc... But it still can't connect to the internet. I can't ping external addresses either. But I can access internal addresses (local router).
I use openSUSE 11.1 since quite a bit and I frequently use YAST (not as root of course). However, since the problems I have to deal with while trying to install WiFi internet access I meet the following problem. I call YAST, get the small authentication screen, I give the right password, which seems to be recognized as such, but I never see YAST appearing. So I can't manage neither my hardware, nor my software.
I successfully booted OpenSuse 11.2 from DVD. But I could not configure my wireless internet connection. YAST said it couldn't configure it because something else was controlling that (Network Manager? something like that)How can I configure this. Related issue. When booting from DVD is there a way to save configuration settings so I don't have to start from scratch the next time I boot from DVD?
we are trying to install this NIC Rosewill RC-400 Chipset RTL8169S-32 in Ubuntu 9.04 we downloaded the drivers from Rosewill website (For kernel 2.4.x and 2.6.x V 3.1) but when we follow the instruction in the readme file and do make clean modules and error comes out
So I went do realteak downloaded latest available drivers that seems to be were release yesterday did same command and same error So I made only make and it went fine did then make clean modules and went fine so made make install, depmod -a and modprobe r8169 verify int was up and getting correct ip from router but I'm not able to access the internet or ping any IP address

I have done a big big mistake (I could beat myself up for that) with my netbook and now I am sitting here, not getting openSUSE installed on it.
I wanted to try another netbook linux and installed (more by accident than intentionally) Easy Peasy Linux. This system is not bad, but cannot work with the wireless adapter in my netbook. However, I then wanted to install openSUSE 11.4 again, which ran fine on the netbook. But the install always gets stuck in different stages and I donīt know why.
Sometimes a failure message comes up: "filesystem is read only, rebooting in 120 seconds", but I am not really sure if this is for the harddrive or the usb stick. In other occasions, the bootprocess until install gets stuck at "starting KDM". Nothing happens then... thats it.
I already have reformatted the usb stick and copied the openSUSE Live CD via Imagewriter on it again... no success.
So now I am really confused, because I donīt know if there is something wrong with the harddrive? Or is it the stick itself? How can I find this out?
If it is the harddrive, how can I at least refomat it? Remember: no CD or DVD drive, just USB stick...
How can I find out if the image on the stick is ok? I already tested the install media and it said: "checksum ok"
A few weeks ago I installed Fedora Linux 64-bit on my HP dv4-1428ca laptop which was running Windows 7. At that time I created a Live USB using the fedora-live usb tool and it booted fine. A couple days ago I decided to try out openSUSE, so I downloaded the 64-bit live-cd image and tried to create a live usb using the SUSEStudio ImageWrite provided in the documentation. The tool kept giving me an error message, so I decided to try unetbootin instead. However, when I tried to boot the live usb on my HP laptop, it presented me with the message.
"SYSLINUX 4.04 EDD 2011-04-18 COPYRIGHT (C) 1994-2011 H. PETER ANVIN ET AL" with a blinking cursor and nothing else. I've tried a variety of alternative programs for creating live USB's (pendrivelinux, linux live usb creator, unebootin), and verified the checksum of the iso file for openSUSE 11.4 64-bit, and still was not able to get past the "SYSLINUX..." message on my HP laptop. However, the live USB does boot on the other computers in my house. Interestingly, if I create a live USB using the tool provided by Fedora, it will boot fine. However the Fedora Live USB tool cannot be used for other distros.

Im new to linux. Im trying to install 11.4 on my desktop. When i try to run the live CD (GNOME) .. after loading the kernel, the screen with just a progressbar appears and the screen crashes, as in some parts of it goes black.. Although, i can install it perfectly, when the OS boots the same kinda screen appears and crashes My system config- intel i7-870 4 core 4GB RAM nVidia GeForce 9800GT 1GB i need to get rid of windows fast.
I have just installed openSUSE 11.3 Linux on my USB External HDD. I am using fast internet connection and I am able to use it fluently in Windows XP. But not able to do so with openSUSE 11.3. As far as I know there should be a tray icon for N/W but its also not shown. And when I start N/W manager it states that n/w manager is already running.
I installed OpenSuse 11.04. To connect to the Internet, I use the script which connects to my Internet provider:
linux-aghn:/home/alex # cable-start Using interface ppp0 Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/4 PAP authentication succeeded
At this stage in another Linux distribution I am connected. In OpenSuse, when I start Firefox, it cannot connect. The problem is not in the browser, Software Management program also reports that connection is not available. ping 18.104.22.168 is successful. I tried to disable Firewall - doesn't help.
I managed to configure my W890i phone to get access to internet through an ubuntu-based computer. It's very easy to use the phone to give internet access to the computer, but the opposite is quite more tricky. For that I've done the following
----On the phone---
-Set the USB network option to "through computer", so that the phone uses the computer's internet connection and not the opposite.
-Decide and set "Shared Network" parameters: user, pasword and workgroup.
-In "conectivity-> internet connection" set "allow local network" to "yes"
----On Ubuntu 10.04---
-Install samba, samba-client, smbfs, smbclient, firestarter and dhcp3-server
-Configure Samba (System-> Administration-> Shared folders): same workgroup as in the phone, add new user (the phone), passwd this new user. In my case the user was called "w890i" and the password given was the same.
-Once the phone is connected to the computer through USB (then select "phone mode"), a new connection appears in NetworkManager: usb0.The aim is to create a shared network that gives internet access to this device. Edit the IPv4 parameters of this new connection, set them to Manual and give an IP adress (192.168.0.1) and a subnet mask (255.255.255.0); the rest of the fields are left empty.Connect this network.
-Set firestarter to use dhcp3: sudo ln -sf /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server /etc/init.d/dhcpd
-Launch firestarter and follow the wizard. Set "allow internet shared connection", choose the device for the primary internet access, and then the device for the shared network (usb0). Then change the settings for firestarter: activate DHCP for local network, set IP to the one we gave before (192.168.0.1).
-Open dhcp3-server config file sudo gedit /etc/default/dhcp3-server And set INTERFACES="usb0"
-Set the policies of firestarter: in incoming connections, allow connections from the IP adress given to the phone (192.168.0.1). Then add rules for the ports that need to be open for this connection. I opened HTTP, HTTPS, SMB, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, IMAPS, DHCP for all the connections in the local network.
-Apply policies and start the firewall.
After all this, the phone can access the internet through the computer. Two problems appeared:
1. I couldn't get access to https sites, like webmails. The phone gave a "communication error". But then I tried with Opera instead of the browser built in the phone's firmware, and I could finally get to https sites.
2. I couldn't retrieve mail, neither POP nor IMAP nor IMAPS. I thought it was a firmware problem again, and I tried out several mobile phone email clients written in java, but none of them worked.
So this is at the moment the problem. If I connect from the phone to the internet directly through 3G, the email clients work for all my accounts. I don't think it's a firewall problem, because the ports are opened for this connection
At some point, the install process asks whether to test internet access. I replied Yes, and the test failed. Retries also failed, leading me to conclude, mistakenly, that the ethernet card was not supported by SuSE 11.2. Finally I elected to skip the test, resigned to the loss of internet access. The install program then proceeded to access online repositories without difficulty, and I had no further difficulty accessing the internet. So why the misleading test result?
I've got an Hitachi Deskstar 164GB IDE drive which I've somehow managed to upset while attempting to swap distros. I'm guessing its lost the MBR as I can't get a PC to see it except in the BIOS. The BIOS tells me that the primary master has 164GB, Cylinders 65535, Head 16, Precomp 0, Landing zone 65534 and Sector 255. (my understanding of that info is very limited). The PC won't boot direct from the hdd and a live Knoppix disc can't see it. Trying fdisk -l produces no list. (Naturally, I can't install another distro on it either).
After installing from the LXDE live CD I am unable to login. I type in my username, and then my password, and then the prompt goes back to the username (in other words, nothing happens). I can however login via the virtual terminals.
Could this be an issue with the live cd? Or was it just a bad install?
Im having a serious issue with booting ubuntu 10.04, the issue being it wont boot up at all, after working so well for so long (i suspect some recent dodgy system updates are responsible) so I decided to just reinstall ubuntu from scratch again but wanted to retrieve some important files from my root device. So I am running the live desktop and I can see my previous filesystems under places but cannot mount or open my original root device where the files I want to recover are located, I receive this error msg:"Unable to mount 77 GB Filesystem.
From my office and home, I can access a web service, no problem. However, from my server at the data center, I cannot. Could this be a DNS issue? I've tried with iptables enabled and disabled. selinux is disabled. This server has multiple network interfaces, one public and two private. The public has a WAN IP address (22.214.171.124), the private is 10.1.10.2 and the other private is connected via crossover cable to another server 192.168.100.1. I think route -n tells me the WAN interface is used to access the internet, as its gateway is my ISP's upstream gateway. CentOS 5.5.
I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a desktop and am trying to install ndiswrapper. I don't have a wired connection to the router, but I have managed to use ndiswrapper successfully on other Linux live distributions which already had them installed (eg, Linux Mint 9). By inserting the Ubuntu 11.04 Live Cd and adding the cdrom in Synaptic's "Settings > Repositories" menu, I can find it in the list of packages, but when I try to install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 and ndiswrapper-common I get a few error messages. First, a notice pops up saying: "Some of the packages could not be retrieved from the server(s). Do you want to continue, ignoring these packages?". I guessed this is due to lack of an internet connection, so I selected "yes" and got an error box that reads:
"E: Internal Error, No file name for ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 W: Failed to fetch cdrom:[Ubuntu 11.04_Natty Narwhal_-Release i386 (20110427.1)]/pool/main/n/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.56+r2729-1_i386.deb Unable to stat the mount point /media/Ubuntu4011.0440i386/ - stat (2: No such file or directory)"
This system has two hard drives and a cdrom drive. I've error checked the Live cd, and it came up clean. Please, can someone give me a hand getting Ubuntu to mount the cd? PS: I've downloaded the ndiswrapper files from sourceforge onto a thumbstick (version 1.56). Is there a way I can install them from the stick?
I have a Toshiba M400 tablet laptop. I installed SuSE 11.2 and have connection to the internet via internal wireless connection to modem zoomtown. I click on mozilla or konquorer but get a blank webpage. I've tried everything I can think of but have not been successful.
I'm currently working on a project in a secure environment with no internet access and I need to install Ettercap and Wireshark on the machines. I thought this would be a simple task of loading Wireshark onto a USB but this did not work and replied with error messages such as: ' Invalid config x86_64-unknown-linux'
what does the error message mean and do I need internet access to install the apps?
I installed 11.3amd64 as a VM under Vista/VMWare Player - all worked fine. I have now installed it as a physical system. It nstalled cleanly BUT during first boot it could not access the repos. With each repo it gave the message
- download (curl) error for (repo) - error code connection failed - error message could not resolve host (repo)
This was followed by a message box containing
- UI syntax error - no widget with ID 'contents
Firefox could not access the internet (cannot find server) until I disabled IPV6 (I used about:config), now it works fine. I think the repos problem is because of IPV6 - I usually have trouble with IPV6. I tried disabling IPV6 with the following (How To Disable ipv6 on SuSE Linux | Linux Poison)
Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition, hyper-v install Windows 2003 R2 for normal Internet use.hyper-v no Internet access after installing ubuntu10.10 64bit is the use of the legacy network adapter, whether or static MAC address and MAC address spoofing is not the Internet,ubuntu network card settings should be no problem.?
What distro is the easiest for a new person to get started? I also need wireless internet access. I've tried to do this once before with linux (mandriva as I recall, I gave up)before and had problems installing the programs that would allow that. Also are there Linux versions that I could install on my pocket PC?
I am trying to install Ubunto 9.10 on my windows XP. I try to run it from the live cd. but every time i try to do this.. I get an error "Unable to find a medium containging live file system" I tried it from different cds too... so it's not an error in the cd.
I cannot install Kubuntu (or Unbuntu) 10.4 on my husband's computer. I have spent 5 hours on this and cannot get anywhere. I am deeply frustrated. The iso I burned to CD is good (works on 2 other computers). His computer will not boot from USB, no matter what I do to the drive order in BIOS. After loading the blue screen with the Kubuntu logo on it (and the blue-white dots), the screen changes to black and shows the following text:
BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash) (initrafs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system.
He really needs to get rid of WinXP. Kubuntu is what I have on my computer (and love it!). Here is some info about his computer:
OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600 OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation
I am using Ubuntu 10.04. My problem is that I am unable to access my internet using Ubuntu. My internet is running fine on Windows 7 installed on same system. I am a bit unfamiliar with Linux. I tried to configure my network settings but it didn't help. I have my system connected to my dsl router via LAN.
