fresh new installatione, after update internet stops working!
« on: August 09, 2007, 05:26:03 am »

Ciao!
I'm a new VectorLinux user,
i moved to this distro from Kubuntu cause Kubuntu was too slow.

Ufter installing the SOHO 5.8 edition, i've update the whole sistem, at the end of it i had the following problems
- grup could not find the splash image (solved by me)
- KDM could not find his image (solved by me)
- internet doesen't work

I come from a Debian system, so i'm not able (and i'm a little bit scarried too) to set up the network by myself...can somebody help me!

Grazie!

do your VL in a LAN? Is there other system in the same network? If yes, can you ping other PC/system?

are you using DHCP or static IP? Check the IP setting....
check the firewall......disable it if can
check "lsmod" and "lspci" to see is the correct NIC modules loaded (not likely the problem but you may double check it)

btw, this problem once happen to me......what I did is reinstall some network related package from gslapt (don't remember the name) and the issue solved. I got mentioned the problem is this forum before they move to new forum. Now it is gone......

i'm using DHCP, but i tryed even static configuration.
Allready disabled the firewall

lspci => i can read my "Ethernet controller" line
lsmod => i don't know what i have to search in that output

i've tried even to reconfigure the whole system using vasm without X in autoconfig bu no way :( :( :(

select the text you want to copy with the left mousebutton. Now, you can paste it with the middle mouse button (wheel) or by pressing both buttons if you have a 12 button mouse.

hihihihi  :D
yes i know!

the problem is that when i submit the form with all that text, the server goes like in stand by (my english is not too good...i don't know very well how to explain), and at the end of these "waiting" period i get redirect with no message on the page with the other posts of the current category, but my reply it's not visible (so i think it has been rejected)

I remember what I did to solve the problem..I reinstall ifplugd from the VL repository.........not remember which version I reinstall......
I found out that there is a ifplugd.conf file in the ifplugd folder have change to ifplugd.conf.bak (this cause my eth0 not auto start at boot time)
if you still cannot connect to network.....maybe you can check your etc/ifplugd folder and have a look yourself.... :P

I had the same problem: My connection was working after the installation, but when I updated the packages of the system from Glasp the connection stopped working. My VL is in a LAN,  there are other systems in the network, but when I ping another PC I get this message:  "Network is unreachable"  I connect via LAN with eth0 card, I just installed this week Vector Linux 5.8 STD and my router and network card are set to use DHCP. I have tried logged in as root:

ifconfig eth0 down
dhcp -k
ifconfig eth0 up
dhcpcd eth0

I also poked around the root VASM for the network and got convinced I had to remove the DNS Server and change my host name to VLG6, simpler.

I can now get online, but I am not sure what I have done to fix it, or what broke it during my first gslapt session.

I now get a message everytime I boot:

"Could not look up internet address for VLG6. This will prevent Xfce from operating properly. It may be possible to correct the problem by adding VLG6 to the file /etc/hosts on your system. "

The Retry button is useless, Continue anyway will get me on and online.

Where in the file do I make the changes. I just need a little bit of hand holding, as I am still "wet behind the ears" on Vector Linux

Thanks.

I fixed the host name problem with Xfce.

In my etc/ifplugd folder, the only thing not commented out (#) is:

INTERFACES= "eth0"

Which appears to be correct. I have the box back online now, I did not know if my case was isolated, or if this is a known problem worth reporting. To tell the truth, I am a little afraid to touch Gslapt package manager again!

Thanks for your help hata_ph.
