This on a Vostro 1220 Laptop w/ Intel 5300 wireless:
A.I have long boot up time.I think it's because of the eth0 network search which I don't use.I have an intel wireless 5300 card running.How can I speed up the boot time, i.e. disable or change the eth0 at boot, the searching?
B:When I restart or shutdown, the screen flashes repeatedly and gets some garbled colors along the top before finally rebooting looks like windows ME or something).This vostro has an intel x4500HD vid chipset in it.
C.How do I get into gnome configuration editor to turn on Metacity compositing? Alt-F2 and run gconf-editor doesn't do it. I don't do compiz, but need compositing.
D.I need to install Chromium Browser as it sync my bookmarks.I have RPMforge enabled btw also...how can I do that? I.e. rpm repo for chromium?
This will help me get off to a running start so I can get up to speed on CentOS..
I have set 'ONBOOT=no' in interface script '/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:2' but my interface bring up at boot time, what is the problem , I have checked it 3 or 4 diff os/machine but the same issue. Can anyone please help me to disable virtual IP's at boot time that network script make it up every boot time.
I use centos 5.3, the problem is my network is not starting when the machine is restarted everytime, i checked everything in the network scripts, and logs which is indicating dat everything is initialising at boot time, wat and wer will b the problem.
I have a wired connection going to my router, which is encrypted with WPA2-PSK. That works fine. I hooked up a WUSB54G v4 (Linksys USB Wireless Adapter), and used ndiswrapper to install the drivers from Vista to make it compatible with WPA2. Also configured the /etc/network/interfaces with the wpasupplicant lingo to make it all work. So if I do that, my eth0 will not work anymore. Also on a side note my network manager stops with displaying in the top panel. Not a problem I can run /etc/init.d/networking (re)start and dhclient eth0 (wlan0) and all the other commands that are necessary to make it work.
Back to the problem, so I hook up wlan0 with the settings and eth0 stops working. I want to use the wlan0 solely for the purpose of my media server. The eth0 is there for my internet and that is it .
I boot linux off a USB stick on many different computers with different hardware. How can I determine in a script which devices eth0, eth1, wlan0 exist and which hardware devices they apply too? Sometimes a wireless card is wlan0, other times it is eth1 or even eth3! The proc/net/dev file does not inidicate which hardware is installed.
I have no telephone connection at home, so I use my cellphone to connect to the internet. Network manager reports this interface as a "wired connection", usb0, using the cdc_ether driver.I also have a router at home, so I can connect my netbook to my desktop wirelessly. My desktop computer connects to the router via ethernet connection, and network manager reports it as eth0.
When I had Ubuntu 8.04 installed on my desktop, I could use my phone, via usb0 interface, to connect to the internet at the same time as using the router on eth0. But now I have 10.04 on the computer, and it won't let me use both interfaces at the same time: I have to unconnect the router before I can use usb0.
I'm using Opensuse 11.4 updated from 11.3, update from 11.2 updated from. I'm mounting at boot time (in fstab) some shares from an opensuse 11.2 server. Mounting worked fine in 11.2, 11.3 and also in 11.4 but suddenly (maybe an automatic update?) It stopped working.... sometimes.
Sometimes they are mounted properly but sometimes they aren't. When mount fails I get a log error: "rpc.statd is not runninf but is required for remote locking. Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local or start statd"
If I run manually (as root) mount -a the shares mount properly always, so I thought it was a problem of timing (the service starting late) so I tried to get a script to run after the network initialitation, the script does: "mount -a". But it doesn't work either.
I have 2 LAN ports. one from the motherboard (on board) and the other from a lan card i bought a few days back. one is use for browsing the net, the other for a media player. problem is i cant connect to both the eth0 and eth1 at the same time. i have to disconnect one of them to connect to the other. and this really gets irritating as it doesnt always work as flawlessly as it should. what am i doing wrong?
I am trying to get networking up on an old PII which I have successfully installed with FC4. There is a link and activity on the onboard interface because I see the indicator lights. The controller is a 3Com PCI 3c905 Boomerang 100baseTx @ 0xdc80.The only message returned by dmesg about eth0 is "Dropping NETIF_F_SG since no checksum feature."The driver module, 3c59x, is loaded as well as the mii module that depends on it.There is something about "unknown parameter`irq'" in the dmesg text regarding the driver.I noticed that eth0 is sharing an IRQ with the UHCI Host Controller.That should not be a problem, but it should not be necessary. And I could do away with USB if this is a conflict and that is the easiest way to solve it.When I drop to console at runlevel 3, and call dhclient, which is installed, I get a message telling me there is no reply to the dhcp request.I don't think the problem is on the router/switch side.
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've got fedora 11 set up to use network time protocol to sync my laptop's date & time when I'm on-line. The question is simple really, I've added a local universality's time server (what is public) and it's live. but it's added to the end of the default time servers what come with fedora. How do I get fedora to just use the local time server, is it a case of removing the default time servers for fedora, but there is a box what says advanced options which are. sync system clock before starting service ???? & use Local time source (( is that the same as the local ntp server that I've got set up ))Hope some body can help me with the network time protocol part of Date/Time settings.
In the right upper corner of your screen,you can see if you have a network connection or not.Most of the time I do not have one according to Networkmanager (?).So I have to enable my wired connection manually.I already tried a lot to change my settings so I would have a network connection at boot,but it doesn't seem to work....Firefox is in Offline modus when I logon..
When I log onto my Ubuntu 9.04 boot I am disconnected from the internet, on my windows 7 boot It works just fine, I have attempted disabling networking, power cycling the modem and router, and re-enabling networking, no dice though. hovering over the connection icon tells me that there is no network connection.
Opening the edit connections window tells me that there a wired connection called Auto eth0 that is set to never, and that is all that I can find. I hunted for other forums on this and found a few but none with a successful resolution.
So far as my knowledge goes, /etc/network/interfaces is supposed to contain a list of all the available interfaces. But my /etc/network/interfaces looks like this,auto loiface lo inet loopbackBut I have a perfectly working eth0 connection. Why does not it appear here?
Should I be able to see eth0 in the Network Connections control program that ships with Kubuntu?Its not there. See screen-shot.eth0 definitely exists and I can access the Internet no probs but it doesn't show in the above.
Upgraded To Ubuntu 10.04 The Other Day. And when I first installed it everything worked great except for my sound card which I fixed. But there was no problem with connecting to my Router via an Ethernet cable. Then I updated the video card drivers, restarted my PC and it wouldn't connect. It would try over around 1-2 mins then tell me its disconnected. No green light activity on the router / network card either.
I've reinstalled fresh copies of Ubuntu a couple of times now, Hoping to get the default settings back. But nothing has worked since.
I looked around the net and found quite a few people had this problem on previous versions of Ubuntu but it would seem most of there fixes were for there Version, so it hasn't helped me.
Heres some info:
I've tried all the various things from dhclient to ifup/ifdown etc etc.
Trying to get the wired nic working so I can troubleshoot the wireless. I cannot get any kind of network activity. Been searching so I will post a little information that seems to be common with my situation.
lshw -C network

I have recently upgraded the ubuntu desktop edition from 8.04 to 10.04. after upgrading i cannot show my eth0 nic interface in the System > Preferences > Network connections----- wired tab. and i also not getting network indication in the top of the panel beside the date time indication. but i can access network and using internet with that lan card. i cant understad my eth0 is connected or unpluged..
Since I installed ubuntu 10.04 I dont see my eth0 card in System->Preferences->Network _connections. Everything works fine but it puzzles me. In ifconfig iI just see the eth0, networking seems to be working fine, but it keeps puzzling me. Adding theinterface is no solution: add it and it doesnt show again
I am using BSNL broadband ISP and I am able to get network on windows os but not on my ubuntu.( I have a dual boot). I see Auto eth0 connected from the notification but when i am pinging [URL]... it says unknown host.
I tried for two days to install ubuntu server to my computer from a cd. Whenever I tried burning to a CD-RW (using two programs at highest and lowest speeds), my cd always said it had corrupt files. So I setup a virtualbox harddisk that was setup tonuse my slave harddisk and installed ubuntu server in virtualbox successfully. Now when I boot my server, it won't connect to my network. Long story short, I have taken lo out of my interfaces and tried resetting my dhcp ip address by releasing and renewing it using dhclient. I have realized that eth0 doesn't exist (it shows up in windows). I think that all I need to do is add eth0 to ubuntu...
