Software :: Fedora Core 6 Won't Connect To Internet Or Update Packages
Mar 8, 2011
I have an old laptop running Fedora Core 6. I need to update it for a project at work. I am using my home network and a hard wired connection. I can ping my router, and ifconfig shows my interface is active and has the right IP address assigned. When I try to open the GUI package updater, it fails to connect. Opening an browser also fails to connect. My firewall is turned off. I suspect a service is not starting, but everything I can think of is running. why layer 3 is working, but my apps won't connect to the Internet?
I use Windows7 on my laptop. I have got the following version of VMware Server installed on it. **VMware Infrastructure Web Access Version 2.0.0 Build 122589** **VMware Server Version 2.0.0 Build 122956** I am running Fedora Core 10 on VMware, but Fedora is not able to connect to the Internet. However, when I try to ping google.com, it works fine. However, if I try to open google.com in mozilla-firefox, it gets stuck at "Connecting to google.com" and then finally times out. Similarly, yum also gets stuck.

I'm trying to do a net install with the latest release of debian - but my ethernet card is not recognized/the drivers are not available because I have a card that requires a linux kernel version of 2.6.35. This is obviously a problem because I can't download any additional packages, and I can't update the version because I'm not able to connect to the internet. I have installed it, but it's only text (which I assume is because I could not install the graphical interface, correct me if I'm blaringly wrong here). So what can I do to install debian on my laptop and be able to use my Intel Centrino Advanced-N 620 network card?
How to update packages from Media Instead of Internet Repository. When I install package using the below command the packages are getting updated from Internet repository. How can I update the packages from media (ex fedora 12 dvd).
I have just installed Fedora 10. After the installation I was able browse the Internet. However, I did a update: yum update and downloaded 287 updates. However, when I rebooted I could no longer connect to the Internet. I went to network manager and looked at the details of my connection. Everything ok there. IP address, DNS, etc. However, I cannot connect. I have windows xp running on the same system. I can still connect, so there is nothing wrong with my Internet connection.I am using Fedora 10 220.127.116.11-170 There is one thing I have noticed when I shutdown is I see this: "Network manager Int PIC disabled" However, this is only displayed for a few seconds before the computer swiches off.
I'm having an interesting problem. I have an AMD quad core and for some reason I can't install x86_64 packages only i686 it originally didn't bother me, but now that i've finally decided to install an ATI graphics card I bought off a friend before i was running fedora but i can't installthe driver for it.
I'm trying out Fedora 14 on an Asus EeePC 1000 netbook.I'd like to install just the basic Gnome interface, its helper applications and Gedit &cI don't want openoffice or evolution &c on this small net book.How would I go about choosing the appropriate packages at install time?If this is documented anywhere, just point me at the page!
During the installation of Debian ( debian-8.2.0-amd64-CD-1.iso ) I couldn't connect to any mirror probably because the internet wasn't configured.
Thus, after the basic installation I wasn't able to install any packages ( trying to install sudo as root prompted me to insert the media disc - the USB drive I used wasn't detected going in an infinite loop ). Judging by the fact that I don't have a window manager installed.
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10. I was unable to connect to the Internet with Firefox or to download packets using command line or Synaptic Package Manager, or run updates. I disabled IPv6 in Firefox and am now able to browse, but I still cannot connect to repositories, I cannot download packages, I cannot run updates either.
I cannot get my wireless Internet device to work without kppp, but the Unbuntu 8.10 installation cd-rom does not include kppp. kppp has lots of dependencie so how do I download the everything I need to my laptop (XP Pro) where my AT&T USBConnect881 wireless device works, burn at cd-rom with the Ububtu packages, take it to other PC, and install it?
im using fedora 14 and i have a slow internet connection. i want 2 install some packages from the fedora 14 dvd instead of downloading from internet using add/remove packages. i tried to edit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo and /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo but it dint work.
I have PC dual boot one for winxp and another for fedora core 13 I installed USB wireless adapter type rtl8187 :
1-In winxp configured properly and I made internet connection broadband type and the internet explorer working fine.
2-In Fedoracore 13 also the USB wireless adapter configured automatically and it show all the wireless station and also I can ping the Gateway address but the internet explorer not working ,I use Mozilla firefox explorer.
I just got an update that installed, and after a reboot I've got one core at 100%. The "you need to restart" icon in the notification tray said "glibc glibc glibc glibc nscd". Now that I look at it, It's switching between both cored. This behavior is consistent over multiple full reboots as well as kexec reboots.
Edit: Strange, just when I finished, the CPU load settled out and now everything is fine. I wonder what was going on. I'm rebooting right now to double check. Edit2: Yep, same issue 100% usage on one core. And it probably will level out soon. I'm not sure what could be causing this. I assume that glibc could be the issue.
I downloaded few updates yesterday and installed them, but i didnt reboot and the wlan worked fine, but after restarting the system it didnt find any wlan connections, so i rebooted, tried rebooting modem and using lan but nothing worked. i know the wlan and lan is working becose my desktop computer and ps3 are working fine. So what should i do? Do i need to do system restore, reinstall or what?
Is my computer model badly supported, as i also had problem with 9.10 install, it complained about bad sectors and crashed, and even low level format didnt find any bad sectors!!
Computer model is: Fujitsu amilo m7400 FB21
Im not sure about the wlan system but its built in and doesnt need any cards. Only problem i have ever had with wlanwas that it couldnt connect password protected wlan.
All of a sudden Update Manager cannot connect to Internet. I just recently fixed a problem I had with playdeb not installing the games due to a internet connection problem (fixed by downloading the script instead of terminal method), this is the only big change I done recently other than downloading documents and pictures.
Here is the detail as to where or why it cannot connect code...
The server connects fine, I can load pages, FTP in, etc. So everything seems good on that end. When I try to use the internet from the Ubuntu box, however, it doesn't seem to want to connect. The internet won't load through firefox, and attempting to update through the repository won't connect. I've tried playing around with refreshing the connection and rebooting and such, but nothing seems to be fixing this. I can't think of what the issue may be as the connection is working, as I can get on the server, but can't seem to get it to connect outward from the actual box.
I Have Installed Ubuntu 10.04 according to the steps mentioned in the following pdf [URL] the problem is after installation i am unable to connect to internet. i have connected internet on LAN but cannot detect it on console. unless i update the system i cannot get GUI.
I have a dial-up connection through PeoplePC and I'm running FC11. In order to get my modem working, I'm told I need to install the wvdial package. To get wvdial, I need wvstreams. I downloaded the source for both on my Windows machine, and transferred the .gz files over to my FC partition.
When I try to ./configure wvstreams, I receive an error about not having a C compiler at $PATH. I'm pretty lost about what I need to do to correct this.
Basically I just want my dial-up to work with FC11
Im having an issue with sudo aptitude install. If i attempt to install anything, it says it will remove all of the packages below. On the other hand,if i use the Synaptic Package Manager, it doesn't remove any packages what is going on here? Any ideas? I have added some karmic repositories, but i dont think that should do anything?
sudo aptitude install libossp-uuid-dev Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done
I have created a virtual machine of a system running Fedora Core 4 and I need to upgrade it to Fedora Core 10. Based on what I have read, it iis possible so I started theupgrade process. I get an error message saying that /dev/hda6 (my root paritition does not exist) even though it does.
Does the installer need to read a label from /etc/fstab? I executed tune2fs -L / /dev/hda6 amd ,and added LABEL=/ for the corresponding entry for fstab. but the FEDORA CORE 10 is still giving the same problems for the installation process. Should I upgrade to an intermediate verson like Fedora Core 7 first?
I installed F12 to a live USB stick. When I boot up the system it says there are several hundred updates available. I've tried to update packages, but when I reboot the updates that claim to have been made do not appear. The system reverts to its original state after reboot.
So is it possible to do this? Can one have persistent packages? (this does seem to work with ubuntu)
Or is F12 on a live USB stick supposed to be pretty much the same thing as having a live (read-only) CD?
What I'd really like to do is have a small version of F12 on a USB stick that has up to date packages I need while dropping the packages I don't need.
I've been a long time ubuntu/debian user, and I decided to give fedora a try. Durng my first set of updates after install, the updater (gpk) seemed to stall on an 'updating libraries' step (it lasted for over 12 hours). Anyway, I force quit the program, restarted the system, and all appears fine. What I wanted to ask is this; is there some way to check the yum log to see if the update completed successfully, or an equivalent to 'apt-get -f install' to fix any broken/partially installed packages.
