network manager for some reason doesnt appear, if i manually find it all it does is tell me about my connection that is setup through gnome, i dont know how to actually activate it!

hmm...can you please expand on editing that file

Standard configuration for wired dhcp interface, would have an entry in /etc/network/interfaces like this:

Code:
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
Please read the "interfaces" man page, and perhaps google for a tutorial on the web.

Cheers,

I do not think that will work for wireless evo. Wireless requies some sort of manager or you can manually use the iwconfig command to get it going.

If you have the most recent version of iwconfig you can connect to almost any kind of network. You can use iwconfig --help to get all the options but the most of the time you would do something like this assuming your wireless card is eth1 and your wireless is named tacos :P
Code:
 
iwconfig eth1 essid "TACOS" 
iwconfig eth1 key <-- This should be the passkey or the hex key from line 1 
iwconfig channel 11 <--- this may not be needed but needs to be the right channel if you use it. 
you would then need to setup dhcp somehow if you have dhcpcd you can just do dhcpcd eth1

NOTE:This is no permanent and will not auto configure when you reboot so making a script that you can run as root would be helpful.

Correct it won't work for wireless, but I don't recall the OP saying they had wireless. Anyway, the equivalent entry in /etc/network/interfaces for wireless with wep would look something like:

Code:
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
wireless_key abcd123456 # Use this format for hex
#wireless_key s:foobar # Use this format with the "s:" for ascii
wireless_essid mynetwork
wireless_mode managed
Basically the lines starting with "wireless_" are passed to iwconfig, so that you don't have to run it manually.

Cheers,

Evo2.

PS. Oops, the OP did specify wireless: my bad.

As has been suggested, you can try wicd since it has no desktop dependencies.

Additionally, it seems there is a wicd compatible e17 module that you can enable within e17. Did you try?

It does not have the name WCID (or WICD), just look for something network related. Do you know how to search for and enable modules in e17?

Yes post #19 or google and you will find pages like

http://watchwolf.fr/wiki/doku.php?id=exalt

Edit: Ok, not sure where you got your e17 packages from, but did you install a package called emodule-net?

I've always wondered why they don't include E17 with mainstream distros. It used to look *bloody* awesome when I tried it back in '96 or '97.

WOW

totally awesome!
I made a script that takes a ubuntu-mini-remix-9.10.iso and makes it into a working e17 Livecd thats installable!

Holy S^%$!
I didn't think it would work...but it did!

However, when booting the cd at desktop you gotta click a few buttons to set up e17 how you want
then it pops up great!

so, anyway I'm writing the short How-To and will post it in General directly
if any e17 experts please post as I know little about it overall...

you will need a runinng 9.10 hd install or a livecd with access to a 3+ GB free space
and the script and mini=-remix iso(150MB)
and an internet connection, of course
and it will copy your existing /etc/apt folder to the livecd squashfs, so have your repos setup too

anyway, gotta go finish it....
