I cannot seem to create a tun device using ifconfig, even though the module is loaded, and the node tun is present in /dev/net and appears to have correct access permissions, trying to use nstx which requires the tun device. Only thing I can think of is adding an alias, but not sure where, since there is no /etc/modprobe.conf or /etc/modules.conf in SUSE 11.3.
I am currently trying to get my server box to recognize my Samsung epic 4g (sprint) which is rooted and has usb tether enabled. It works perfectly and effortlessly on my ubuntu desktop box, but I hook it up to my server box and ifconfig does not find a usb0 device like my desktop does. I am running 10.4.1 on both desk and server box.
I'm trying to install a Linux driver for my wireless network card (D-Link DWL-G510) on my Red Hat Linux 7.1 machine with a 220.127.116.11 kernel. I downloaded the serial monkey driver from the sourceforge site and was able to successfully compile the rt73 module and load it into the kernel. The problem now is that everytime I issue the command ifconfig wlan0 up it keeps returning with the following error message: wlan0: unknown interface: No such device.
I'm at a loss as to what to do here. I specifed wlan0 as the alias for the rt73 module in the modules.conf and also tried to load the driver with the command modprobe rt73 ifname=wlan0 (this specifies the interface name according to the instructions packaged in the driver), but the error message still keeps coming up.
Is there something else I need to do in Linux to configure the wlan0 part or is the module not recognizing the wireless network card? It would be quite strange if it is the later since all information from the Internet is indicating this is the linux driver I should be using for mentioned wireless card.
I am running UNR on an Asus T91MT and everything was working great until an update yesterday, my OS froze while updating and I had to do a hard reboot. Since, I have not been able to get wireless, and lshw does not even recognize the presence of a wireless device on the system.
running FC 11 on a 64 bit machine.having trouble with cd/dvd. when ever I put a cd or dvd in the tray and try to load images, I can not find the cd/dvd device. just want to load cd/dvd and click on icon and open the files/images.
The case is that I've got 2 harddisks. On the one windows xp(slave) - and on the other one ubuntu (master). During the boot I get these errors... "Gave up waiting for boot device" "Boot args(cat /proc/cmdline)" "Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; 1s , dev)" "/dev/disk/by-uuid/f96603ce - does not exist"
These problems occured because of this: After using ubuntu I tried to reset my bios, because else it couldn't have found the disk with xp. And I didn't disconnect the disk with xp while resetting the bios. And now the system can't find the disk with xp any more when booting. Is there a way to finding the disk..? And I'm in doubt about IF I've resetted the bios at all. I miss a manual for PCCHIPS M851. May be it can take 20 minutes for the bios to be resetted? The shop where I bought the motherboard doesn't exist any more... and don't know the manufacturer. Could I damage the motherboard if I tried rebooting lots of times to get it work?
I thought I'd give Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal??) a try on an old Dell Latitude D600 I had lying around. Install went great. Everything seems to run nice and slick.. except one thing.. the wireless is giving me the old "Device not ready (firmware missing)" So I can only use my lappy on a leash.
It's a pretty common Broadcom NIC... and I've tried running the System / Administration / Additional Drivers and nothing comes up.
It seems to me I need a driver someplace...I don't know where or how to get it installed.
I've been testing Squeeze to determine whether KDE4 is finally suitable for my primary machine. Everything seems to be working fine except for detection of IDE devices. My CD/DVD drive no longer automounts and the reason seems to be that no device is being created. My Lenny system detects the drive as /dev/hda, but no such device exists in Squeeze. During boot, Squeeze appears to detect the drive as /dev/sr0 (according to dmesg), but in fact that device does not exist either.I'm actually running the Lenny kernel, as I am unable to compile my Ralink wireless driver (rt2860sta) using the Squeeze kernel. Also, for inquiring minds, I use removable HDD drive bays on my systems to simplify testing.
I was having issues with the mic or line in on my onboard sound card, while trying to get my tvtuner patched in, later I gave OSS a try, I could not get it to work and decided to go back to Alsa, now my soundcard is not functioning.I have followed quite a few different guides, one of which is the sticky, please forgive me for not remembering which guides. I'm going nuts over this.As you can see below it looks like it is still using the oss driver.

i have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my computer, which is HP 4710s ProBook.I've installed it with wubi and everything seem to be working just fine, except for my wireless.It is showing me: device not ready(firmware missing).
The problem after couple installations (10.10 --> 10.04 --> 10.10 --> 10.04-3) is that system goes to "busybox" after complaining about missing root device. I already have come to conclusion that this problem could be solved by telling the system that the root device is at sda1. However, I'm not able to start grub (by pressing "ESC") at boot before problems start. I'm able to start live-cd and I tried to install "over" the old one (same partitions without format, same username). No luck.
And in the busybox /proc/modules is empty for example. And the grub has worked with previous installations.
I've got an LVM2 VG containing 1 LV running on SLES11 SP1.
I have an entry in /etc/fstab to remount them at boot:
Code: /dev/myVG/ibmLV /opt/IBM ext3 defaults 0 0 Whenever I reboot the whole VG disappears and I find the following in /var/log/boot.msg: Code: <notice -- Apr 15 12:35:55.954677000> boot.localfs start Waiting for /dev/myVG/ibmLV . no more events
Recently, I wiped my existing install of Ubuntu 10.10 and reinstalled it over. That went smoothly, except for one little snag. Now when I try to connect to the Internet, up on the top when I click the little network icon, under Wireless Networks, instead of showing the networks I can connect to, it says:
"Device Not Ready (Firmware Missing)" So I move the little wireless switch on my laptop, and then it says:
"Wireless Disabled" What did I do, and how do I fix it?
where the various ........ represent the relevant addresses. This is necessary because my ISP only recognizes one computer - my first one. The above works fine, I simply copy and paste the above from a text document, but I would like to know which files I can alter/create so that all the above is achieved automatically when I boot my second computer.
I am trying to manually set up a number of static IPv6 addresses to one of the physical network interfaces on my 8.04server box.
I tried to use the "ip" utility like that:/ip addr add [myIPv6addr] dev eth0 label eth0:0
which was accepted by ip (no errors) and the IP address was correctly assigned to eth0. But using "ip addr show" I do not see any reference to the label I defined and "ip addr show dev eth0 label eth0:0" does not come back with anything (empty output).
This seems to contradict the information I found on the ip manpage and I wonder if this is a bug or a misconfiguration on my side. Did anyone successfully used the label functionality with ip?
I manage to get Ethernet over Firewire working between my Windows XP desktop and my Ubuntu 10.10 laptop.However, I am getting tired of having to manually issue the ifconfig command every time.How can I automate it so that the command is done at bootup?
I am working with ubuntu and my eth0 connection was up and working fine untill some days back when all of a sudden it seemed to disapper. I was able to access the net through it before. But now it has vanished and i donno when. i tried ifconfig eth0 up but no use. The result of cat /etc/network/interfaces is as follows
I have seen this in fedora 8/9 systems :- when I configure the eth0 card and give it a ip address using the ifconfig command from the terminal window and then check out the card from the network config GUI subsequently, it doesnot reflect the ip address as configured through the ifconfig command. However, the ifconfig command continues to show the new ip address as usual. If I need to change the ip address of the eth0 interface which should be the prefered mechanism - the ifconfig command or the GUI. Ofcourse I understand that, for the ifconfig command mechanism a line would have to be added to the rc. Local file so that the change is effective on every subsequent bootup.
I have a command that I run to renew my mobile broadband connection. It works from the terminal, but not in my crontab. My connection usually drops out after being connected for a week or so. So I tried to make a cron job to check the connection every 15 minutes (when there is an IP address on interface ppp0, then it is connected, so if there is nothing, I restart network-manager and it reconnects)
works from my terminal, but not when run as a cron job. If the schedule the above script to run every 15 minutes, it restarts network manager every 15 minutes, so I think ifconfig isn't working from cron. Is there some caveat about ifconfig in cron?
I'm a relatively inexperienced with Linux, coming from a Windows background, and I struggling to solve a troublesome issue attempting to set a static ip address to a Live Debian USB Key. I know it is possible to utilise the 'ifconfig' function to set a static ip address and use 'route' to set the gateway, e.g.
ifconfig eth0 10.0.0.40 up route add default gw 10.0.0.130 eth0
..however in both cases I need to explicitly set the 'eth0' to point at the appropriate adapter. However, this is where my problem is...
I'm creating a persistent USB key using the Debian Live CD, I'm going to create an image and then duplicate that image to a load of other USB keys. Again, not a problem as such but there are cases where I need to specify a static IP address and gateway rather than using DCHP.
And here's where problem raises its head.
Because I've created the key on another machine it has allocated 'eth0' to a specific MAC Address (assigned in /etc/udev/70-persistent-net.rules) but when I place it into machine with a different network adapter it is assigning to 'eth1' (and this increments up).
a) call 'ifconfig' and 'route' without having to identify the adapter or
b) change the script that is creating '/etc/udev/70-persistent-net.rules' so it overwrites the 'eth0' entry with the only applicavle network adapter for the current hardware.
