OpenSUSE Network :: Ethernet Card Missing After Upgrade?
Jul 1, 2011
I have a strange problem. An old PC is my home server. On the PC I had in the long past 2 NICs. For the last year or so, I had only one NIC installed, a Compex with 8139too module which run just fine. After the upgrade to 11.4, 32bit of course, with zypper dup, I saw that I had no internet and no network connection to the server. So, I logged on the server and found that rcnetwork could not start the eth0 and eth3(!). OK, a mistake I thought. Enter Yast and solve it. Unfortunately, yast reports 2 cards! I removed all of them, rebooted but nothing. lspci reports 2 cards, while I have NONE installed on the motherboard!hwinfo --netcard the same! yast the same! So, the OS "knows" that I have 2 NICs, while I definitely have none!
Checked if /etc/udev/rules.d/70- had any left data from the past, but the file was empty. Checked the /etc/sysconfig/network/scripts nothing again.In principle, the openSUSE 11.4 believes that I have 2 cards (and with wrong MACs, obviously) and I cannot make it rescan the PCI bus to find that I have nothing! I am sure that some garbages are left somewhere but I don't know where to look at. it is very critical to have that server but on-line and in my LAN.
I installed the OpenSUSE 11 on my IBM T43 laptop. After installation finish I found the Yast can't detect the integrated ethernet cardBroadcomCorporationNetXtremeBCM5751MGigabitEthernet PCI Express(rev 11).
I have a hp zd 7000, i really like this laptop, the onboard ethernet will not work at all. i purchased a dynex wired ethernet pcmcia card to get on the internet with. i have had no luck getting on the internet with it it will light up so i am getting power but no transmitting light works at all i have three net work cards listed in the system. one is the wireless. and the other two are the wired eth0 is the onboard and eth2 is the dynex what can i do next to determine the problem i do not use the wireless at all.
system: destop openSUSE 11.4 KDE single wired network connection running as a headless server upgrade from 11.1
Problem: I had a bunch network services running under 11.1 with KDE. Now after upgrade to 11.4 full network functionality is broken. I was using ifup but now is broken. Between ifup and NetworkManager I can demonstrate the full required range of functionality but not all at the same time (the union of functionality of each provides the full required functionality, but not individually). WOL does work in all cases.
With 'ifup', it seems that everything is 'working' as before, but services are broken when accessed from outside. eth0 up and fuctioning with statically assigned IP. Outgoing connections seem to work - I can browse the web. But trying to access services from outside is broken. VNC is rejected. Connecting to SMB shares reports login error. TFTP doesn't respond. SSH connection is rejected.
Although sometimes it will get in a state that everything except VNC works (connects but then is dropped upon login with "Error while waiting for server message") but I can't consistently reproduce this state other than it seems to happen after some extended period of time.
I have verified the firewall is off and apparmour is off.
On the other hand, everything works with 'NetManager' (both KDE and Plasmoid) with no other changes. The problem here is that it does not seem possible to set a static IP address - eth0 doesn't show up in the list of wired interfaces to be able to select and edit. That's problem 1 - I need a static IP. (I suppose I could reserve an address at the DHCP server, but a static IP works 100% to get the right address). The other problem is that neither NetManager starts at boot and only start _after_ login at the console - that won't work as I never log in at the console. (I suppose I could set it up to login automatically into a console or something but I would rather not)
I installed 10.3 (after buying it a couple of years ago and letting sit on the shelf) and can't get it to configure my ethernet connection or my wireless card. Yast doesn't include a list of available cards, and the error I get in installation-network setup is that the kernel isn't present. The machine I'm installing this on is a Lenovo, in which there isn't a discrete ethernet card (it's in the motherboard), but my wireless card (a Cisco LINKSYS 802.11G) is a discrete card. Because I'm divorcing Microsoft for a number of valid reasons, I don't have Windows available on that box.
i have installed openSUSE 11.2 on a dell dimension 2400. My Ethernet card wasn't working, so i am using a wireless interface, but it doesn't work either. It worked on a dell dimension 4400, but when it gets to the activate network my system freezes. Should i re-install my system, or should i post this under the hardware category.
I have a dual boot system (Suse 10.0 and Windows XP Pro) in my notebook. My notebook is toshiba m358, which has a Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet Network Card (Marvell 88E8072) on it. My problem is this: in Windows XP Pro, the network card works well, but in openSUSE, the light on the network card does not turn on. I believe that there is no driver for the network card. I have tried several ways to solve this problem:
1. Download Marvell 88E8072's driver from "[URL]", whose name is "install_v10.85.3.3.tar.bz2", and then install it with following commands:
Code: # tar xfvj install_v10.85.3.3.tar.bz2 # cd DriverInstall # ./install.sh .....
Code: # modprobe sk98lin # WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/. After I reboot the openSUSE, the light of network card is still off.
2. Follow "[URL]" to configure the Marvell 88E8072. It also does not work.
Last weekend I upgraded my Opensuse 11.1 machine (pretty clean) to 11.3. After the upgrade, the NVidia graphics no longer worked, but more importantly, eth0 was not bound to my Intel 82566DC gigabit ethernet controller. I fooled around in yast network devices long enough to know that everything there is configured correctly. The Yast message at the bottom of the Network Settings screen says:
"Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices). See dmesg output for details."dmesg output shows nothing related to networking. The boot screen shows:
Setting up (localfs) network interfaces: lo ... Waiting for mandatory devices: eth0 __NCS__ 29 28 27 ... 1 0 ... failed eth0 no interface found ... failed
Any ideas here? I've googled till my fingers were tired and all I've found are references from folks with real hardware issues. This machine worked fine for me under 11.1. Now I can't get 11.3 to bind the nic.
This may sound ridiculous, but after installing Debian 5 (from CD 1) in my laptop, ASUS UL80VT, it fails to detect the Ethernet device. The device is "Atheros AR8131 PCI-E Ethernet Controller". I guess the problem comes with the old kernel of version 5. I was intending to compile the latest kernel anyway. But the problem is is there any heads up i need to download the kernel and trying to compile it? Is there anyone who uses Debian on UL80VT. If there is, does it works okay?In short I want to compile the latest kernel, hoping it will fix the Ethernet device. There are installers available with the latest kernel. But I want to do it on my own.
I've added a 2nd ethernet network card into my linux box. After I installed it the box recognized the new card and mapped it to eth1, as I expect. I then configured the addresses and routing for my eth0 and eth1 interface. Since then I had shutdown my box.When I next started my linux box up only eth0 was present.`ifconfig -a` only displays eth0, but `lspci` lists both cards. How can i permanently map the new pci card to eth1?

I'm on opensuse 11.4 (11.3 won't work with my monitor).
My computer gets internet through wireless and I want to share that internet through its ethernet port. So far I've tried using Knetworkmanager to create a network bridge between my wireless and wired connections. I created a new wired connection and shared it using the ip address settings. I was able to get both connections active, but the device hooked up via ethernet had no internet connectivity.
I also tried this command: echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
but another test resulted in the same fashion (no internet on wired). I believe anything I add to /proc should have an immediate effect, correct?
I often use an Ethernet cable to connect my computer to another computer for various purposes. But when I do that, I cannot use the internet even though I'm still connected to a WiFi access point. I'm presuming that's because openSUSE is trying to reach the internet through the Ethernet cable, which has precedence over WiFi.Is there a way to enable internet usage via WiFi while I'm connected to another computer over Ethernet?
I am basically wanting to use my Ubuntu 10.10 computer as a router. Note: Before you say just get a router please note that I am poor/cheap. I have two ethernet connections and one wireless connection on my netbook. I want to share the internet connection that is going into one of the ethernet cards through the other ethernet card and the wireless card.
DSL-->1sr Eth --> 2nd Eth (currently works) DSL-->1sr Eth --> Wireless Card (Adhoc) <--(connects with limited connectivity AKA no internet)
The 2nd Ethernet card already has working internet, but when I connect to the Wireless card (through an Adhoc network), it cannot get an IP (I believe).
I was running Ubuntu 9.10 on my HP G70 laptop and did an upgrade using upgrade manager to Ubuntu 10.04.
Since I haven't been able to get wifi connection or wired working. The Network Manager applet is missing from the notification area and if I try to run nm-applet manually it says it is already running. I tried killing the process and then running it manually in the terminal and although the process appears to be running it is missing from the panel.
Booting into the live cd has the applet working fine so something in the upgrade process must have failed.
I tried changing the theme to see if it displays in other themes but had no luck.
I also tried to log into kde but kde seems to be broken. When I log into it after the splash screen all I get is a black screen with only my mouse pointer.
I have just switched over from Ubuntu. My PC with Ubuntu connected to the ethernet fine, but now the internet is not found at all. Can someone tell me what sort of things I need to do to get my internet up?
Today I switched from Ubuntu to OpenSuse. But I can't setup my Ethernet connection.I have 2 PCs connected with a crossover cable, one with Ubuntu, the other with OpenSuse 11.3. Lights are on in both NICs.
I am using Sony vaio E series laptop. Previously, I was using my E63 nokia phone as modem for internet connection and i have installed K-internet in my Opensuse OS, and configured wvdial.conf as follows:
But now, I have Reliance Brodband Connection through LAN. when I am Pluggin in my LAN cable in my laptop YAST Network Configuration Showing Marvell Ethrtnrt is not Configured, When i am going to configured that part it's showning me no Enther net present or Configured By ny Hardware Is detecting ethernet. So, I have concluded that it might be the problem with my wvdial.conf. Also, additional information are as follows:- S- Open suse 64bit, Version- 11.2, cause I cannot Connect to my Internet now? What should I do to have this Problem Fixed?
I've been searching for a couple of hours and have not found any threads that solve my situation... hope I'm not repeating something here.
Setup: Notebook with openSUSE 11.2 using KDE 4. Using Network Manager to manage network connection (although I've tried configuring this using ifup as well with no luck).
I need to be able to connect to client networks via a network cable (Ethernet) and connect to the internet via my MiFi 2200 Mobile WiFi. Both cards/connections are active with the following:
I have no problem mounting drives from the client's network. But, can not reach the internet. If I disconnect the ethernet cable, the browser will immediately connect to the internet and load web pages.
I'm assuming the ethernet connection is taking precedence over the wireless connection?
I can't imagine that there is not a way to set this up. If Windows can do it, I'm sure openSUSE can!
How can I enable the network with Networkmanager WIHTOUT logging in in OpenSuse 11.2? If I define a connection for ethernet the System connection is greyed out. I want to use Networkmanager because I have also wireless connections...
I'm currently using SuSE 11.4 and after running the full online updates and restarting the machine as YAST suggested, I no longer have eth0/eth1 available.
I'm clueless about what to do since I'm kinda new to Linux and at the moment, I'm trying out all the distros before making a full commitment to anyone. So far, Ubuntu has been trouble-free from day one, but I'm willing to give this distro (opensuse) some slack.
I'm new to this environment. I'm currently using OpenSuse 11.2 freshly installed. I'm attempting to install FCoE as a target on one box and an initiator on another. I've gone to the Open-FCoE.org site and got the tar file open-fcoe-2.6.34.tar.gz and attempted to install it, but there appear to be missing dependencies, such as libhbalinux. However, the more I seem to install, the more there are unresolved dependancies. I've followed the Open_FCoE Target and Iniator Quick Starts, but I'm running into many missing souce dependencies. What exactly I need in the way of packages, files, etc and how to install them? Is there any documentation of how to install FCoE from scratch?
After updating to openSUSE 11.3, and restarting my computer, I placed my computer in sleep(suspend to RAM) mode, and I lost my internet connectivity. I noticed that my computer was only connected through ethernet. After entering "dhclient eth0" in a terminal, I received the following output.
RTNETLINK answers: Cannot allocate memory
This is the first time that I have had issues with connecting to the Internet using Ethernet.
After I tried to make my onboard video card (radeon x1250) work with openGL (I didn't succeed), it went bad. I get this error when I attempt to start VirtualBox: VirtualBox: supR3HardenedMainGetTrustedMain: dlopen("/usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox.so",) failed: libatiuki.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Other software also misbehave.how to "reset" the video drivers?
