Mdv2009: Intranet works but internet stopped working
I was working with Mdv2009 for 2-3 days but all of a sudden the internet stopped working properly. It was weird because direct connectivity worked, the same settings of proxy, DNS, IP and mask worked till then and still work in Windows! Even more baffling was that urpmi worked but when I tried the same with same proxy setup from command line ftp it doesn't work!
Can anyone help me with any suggestions please?
if you get an ip address answer you do not have the dns problem you seem to have.
if you get the mandriva page you do not have a physical/router connection problem.
If you did not get an ip address in test 1 you may have a file, /etc/resolv.conf, with a nameserver entry that is wrong/does not match windows entry.
for discussion of maintenance of this file which is subject to automatic overwriting during updates and reboots.
Again as I said, urpmi works beautifully, sites mentioned as ftp.something get connected, files downloaded and installed. The same cannot be done from command line, I can't explain why.
I am planning to do a reinstall and if the problem continues, I'll get back to 2008.0pwk. The same Mdv2009 works at home flawlessly, hence I am even more baffled. x-(
