OpenSUSE Network :: How To Configure A Pppoe Connection

Jun 26, 2010

I would like to know how to configure a pppoe connexion? I am testing version 11.2 on live cd but I can't manage to connect my laptop. I used the "green plug software", I filled all the blanks (I am not a total beginner because I have been using Mandriva for a year) but afterwards I can't select pppoe instead of eth0 What should I do?

I read on this forum NET INSTALL PPPOE - Alionet, communaut francophone d'entraide openSUSE et SUSE Linux that the only reason that I can't configure a pppoe connexion is because I am using a live version of 11.2 as result that it only recognizes an ethernet connexion and a modem (everything I said, is said in the forum I linked, but you'll have to read it in french )

I try to configure a pppoe connexion to Tl2, my internet connexion provider. I live in France. My modem is a Bewan ADSL ethernet 100, no need to configure it.

OpenSUSE Network :: Reconnect A Pppoe Internet Connection?

Dec 31, 2010

I have a ppoe internet connection. I was easier and faster to configure it in Yast than in Windows XP. When
The provider here sometimes goes through some problems and the connection may disappear and return at any unexpected moment. In Windows there is a icon on system tray that dysplays such information and I know when the connection is gone. It also allows me to try to reconnect manually. Where do I find these information on Opensuse here do I manage to reconnect. In Windows it was also possible to set the connection to re-dial automatically when it was out. It was very useful if it failed in the middle of a download, the system reconnected and the download manager retried until download resumed. Is there some way to adjust opensuse to reconnect automatically when connection fails or some software that does it? Furthermore, is there a good download manager that works in Opensuse that pause, accelerates downloads and retries when connection fails?

OpenSUSE Network :: PPPoE - Cannot Access LAN And Internet Simultaneously

Feb 7, 2011

I need to implement at my sister this kind of connection: She is connected on Local area network that has about 50-80 pc's, but for internet access she must start an pppoe connection. For now when she wants to use lan she must put her local address (ps: they dont have dhcp), for pppoe she uses dhcp. Problem is that on that way she can't access lan and internet at the same time. She must disconnect from lan and then start pppoe connection and vice versa. I'm intrested if it is possible to have lan access at the same time as internet access. some kind of tunel through lan up to isp. I was googling little and so PPPoE tunneling. Is it that what I need here?

Ubuntu Servers :: Create A New Server Package And Leave Minimal Minimal?

Feb 17, 2010

After a long time I tried ubuntu(9.10) again on my fileserver, I have some remarks; why does a minimal server installation include X/openoffice? I don't need document conversion on a fileserver and I bet a lot of people don't. Wouldn't it be better to create a new server package and leave minimal minimal? low memory installs (64mb) don't work unless you configure swap by hand in between things, 64mb ram is a lot in my eyes. I mean, not to be rude but if I wanted all this I could've better installed Solaris.

That said it's stable and running fine. Since it's my home fileserver I tried to convert my previously created raid10 mirror on an adaptec 1200 card to a softraid 5 solution. This is wat I did:

OpenSUSE Network :: Pppoe - Stuck And Doesn't Connect To Eth0

Jun 30, 2010

i'm using opensuse 11.3 and can't connect to the internet, my eth0 interface (which would be my modem i suppose) is found and when i "activate" it with ifup eth0, it gets stuck waiting for data (says so in ifstatus). If i try with knetworkmanager it is also stuck and doesn't connect to eth0. If i try to make it connect at boot, it doesn't work either.

I think the problem might be that in windows xp my modem has a "limited connection" but i can connect with my pppoe password anyway, but opensuse won't let me connect until it finds eth0 is working correctly which it never will because of how the internet company configures the modems i think. I don't know with which command i could "force" the pppoe connection even without a good connection to the modem, maybe that would work. But on the other hand, with other distros i can connect just fine so i don't know really.

Ubuntu Installation :: Minimal Install - Mini.iso - No Network Interfaces Detected?

May 9, 2010

Trying a minimal install with the mini.iso. I don't have a wired internet connection, only wireless from my iPhone which works fine with my full install of Ubuntu. The installer is not able to find my wireless connection stating "No Network Interfaces Detected". I did try to install yesterday in town with a friends wired internet connection and I got the same result. I'm able to get to the command line in the installer but have no idea how to start my wireless connection so the install can continue. I have searched here, and elsewhere on the net to the point of giving up.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wired Minimal Install - No Network Interfaces Detected?

Jul 18, 2010

I'm trying to do a minimal install via a USB flash drive. Everything was good until it tried to recognize my network (wired). It showed "No Network Interfaces Detected" (On Ubuntu and Debian). I wish to do a minimal install since I want to install the programs I want myself. Plus, I have a small flash drive.

I'm using an Atheros AR8151 PCI-E as my card (as shown by Windows). I also have a wireless, though I don't care much about that, wired will probably be easier. Through the command shell, I can see Ethernet Controller: Atheros Communications AR8151 v1.0 Gigabit Ethernet (rev c0). When I do plug the Ethernet cable in, I don't get the lights on during Linux installation but they do come on in Windows. If I need some additional driver, can I somehow add it to the minimal installation? I was looking through the log file and found that i82365 could not be loaded, a PCMCIA controller. I'm assuming this is separate from the NIC and interfaces between the bus and the NIC.

no idea whether it's because it couldn't find the drivers or because the controller was incorrectly identified. But I'm pretty sure this is why I can't get my network card to work.

Ubuntu :: Alternative/Minimal On EeePC 1101HA - No Atl1c Network Support

Aug 16, 2010

The alternative and minimal installation images do not contain drivers for my EeePC 1101HA's network devices. The module required for the ethernet is atl1c (Atheron AR8132), but the discs contain only atl1 and atl1e. What can I do to install it?

I dug the .ko file out of the live CD (which works fine) and tried to modprobe it in the alternative installer's environment (minimal won't let me mount any storage devices), but modprobe wouldn't accept it as a module. So I gather there's a missing step somewhere.

Also, the alternative image is choking on an error, "Debootstrap error: Failed to determine the codename for the release." So I can't even install from a mounted ISO and figure out how to install the driver on the otherwise working system.

How do I make this work? I'd really like to build an Ubuntu system from the ground up instead of relying on the ready-made desktop live CD.

OpenSUSE :: New Install, Pppoe And Gcc Missing?

Mar 12, 2010

I installed openSUSE a couple of weeks ago but didn't use it until 2 days ago. It was the latest version when I installed it.To my surprise there wasn't a gcc or pppoe installed. Or at least there wasn't a command line begging with ppp.I tried to install them both with rpms. I think I got them both, just they don't work very well. In particular rp-pppoe doesn't work at all. It says that there's no modem on eth0, which is very true there's only a eth cable. gcc seems to work but I'm not sure I installed all the dependencies.I can't use yast because of lack of internet. I have to reboot to windows and download rpms.Can you give me a work around? At least for the pppoe then it might fix itself. Can I have some EXACT links to rpms or another solution?

General :: Need A Minimal Server Install

Jan 11, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 7.04 server on a low spec spare machine ( 500MHz, 128 RAM) but fancy a change. Basically would like a non-GUI, command line only interface, running SSH, Samba and a flavor of FTP. FTP must be set up so users only have access to their home directory and not to any other system dirs. In addition I may want to incorporate anonymous ftp login at some point. Any recommendations for both FTP and minimal server software ?

OpenSUSE Network :: Network Login Starter - Set Up A Server - Centralized Username And Password

Jan 21, 2010

I'm new to networks and servers, been using Linux on the desktop for a while now but always relied on the company's IT guy for setting up everyting LAN-based.

Now I want to build up my home LAN, and want to do it with Linux. I've managed to set up LAMP and file share servers.

What I am looking for is information on what I need, and how to set up a server for the following tasks:Centralized Username and Password, that when the user logs into any one of the desktops in the LAN, it uses this for authentication

Something that allows this authentication to be utilized in other servers (file access, web access, router logging, etc.). Something to make it easier for continuing permissions from one service to another. e.g. I have IPCop filtering content, and it has provisions for tracking who is making which request if there is authentication going on. (optionally) to run a script for mounting Samba shares or mapped network drives so from one system to the next. For example, in whatever box somebody logs in, it mounts a server share ("smb://Myserver/users/<username>") to a local folder ("my_user_share").

So;user "fred" ="smb://Myserver/users/fred" and user "wilma" = "smb://Myserver/users/wilma" but both would find their respective one mounted under "~/my_user_share". This would be irrespective of which box they are loggin in with. If the server share location changes (new server/servername), I change it on the server so the next time they log in it points to the right place.

I guess it is similar to Window's Active Directory, though I'm not sure what it's called, how to configure it and what it is and is not capable of doing.

Fedora Servers :: How To Setup Weave Minimal Server

Feb 14, 2011

As I do not want to entrust my firefox data Mozilla's Server and have a server runnig anyway, I wanted to setup a server which provides weave service. I found this and know from different sources of the web that this indeed works: [URL] It is a stripped down Weave server intended for personal use. All in all, it does not sound to complicated. The developer says


You ll need a relatively recent php with sqlite, mbstring and json support, and apache, preferably running ssl. Give it a shot and let me know how it worked for you in the comments. I have Fedora 14. Only problem is that Fedora does not provide a php-sqlite package. For this I found a repo [URL] So I installed php-sqlite (as well as php-pdo, php-cli and php common) with


yum --enablerepo=remi intstall php-sqlite

In consequense all php releted stuff was replayed by remi provided packages. In addition I installed json to get JSON support. The author describes the setup quite easy as follow:



Add the following line to your apache config:

Alias /weave /<path to this folder>/index.php

Restart your apache server. Point your browser at h[URL]. Enter "blah" for the username and garbage for the pwd. Auth will fail, but it will create the db (you can cancel the subsequent request for auth). You should now see a file called weave_db in the directory.

You can create and delete users by running the create_user script.


in about.config, set extensions.weave.serverURL to [URL] You can run it under http, but this is insecure and not recommended.If I disable or set SELinux to permissive mode I can point my browser to [URL] Here starts the trouble. After attemping to login no weave_db is created. I tried even 777 permission in that directory. I can run the create_user script with php and add a user, but the database does not seem to be recognized, I am unable to login into weave service.

Ubuntu Servers :: User Rights With Minimal GUI On Server?

Jan 17, 2011

I am trying to set up a simple home file-server for media and backups, using an old Atom board I had lying around and 1GB memory, so I don't want a full desktop. All goes well with installing server 10.10, using LVM for my data disk. However, I wanted some GUI tools since I am not familiar with the CLI, so I installed gdm, xorg, and gnome-core as suggested in some threads and forums.So far so good, it boots into the Gnome desktop, but I can't get sudo access with anything (synaptic, gkedit, etc.) - always "incorrect password". I am fine from the console; I reset my user password, no luck; I set up another admin user, and that also works in console but not the desktop.I have no idea where to go next and can't find anything that works in the forum

General :: Minimal Installed Server, Put A GUI And VNC Via Command Line?

Apr 14, 2010

Total, total noob here, but I would like to know if this is possible, and maybe some tips on how to do it if it is.I just got myself a dedicated server, and I guess I assumed I could just remote control it via my own screen, much like using vnc or remote desktop, but that wasn't the case.The server has Debian 5.0, a "minimal install" is what they called it, I assume it's just installed and not configured at all.1. Connect to the server, and I guess the only way is via telnet? Since I have no VNC or remote desktop (yeah, microsoft, I know, but I don't know what it's called for Linux/GNU).2. Can I install VNC or somehow "activate" or "open" the GUI via telnet, much like a remote desktop kind of solution? I have used Debian's GUI on my laptop a couple of times, and I'm a total Windows-user, but I can navigate the graphical interface. I'm just COMPLETELY nulled when it comes to command line.So yeah, I guess I'm wondering how the heck I can remote control the server via a GUI, preferably VNC, and if I can install it via telnet or however I'm supposed to connect to the server?
