Linux Mint 7 Gloria XFCE Networking Problem

I followed this tutorial to fix the IPV6 error, ... aunty.html, but when I got to the

$ifconfig eth0 step

this is what I got this

josh@joshua-eee ~ $ $ifconfig eth0
bash: eth0: command not found

Heres the results of ifconfig

lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr: Mask:
RX packets:374 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:374 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:26988 (26.9 KB) TX bytes:26988 (26.9 KB)

pan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr ee:39:a8:9a:f5:c6
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:64 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:15262 (15.2 KB)

pan0:avahi Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr ee:39:a8:9a:f5:c6
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:

Im trying connect via ethernet now, but will later do it through wireless.



Those are the results when I did locate ifconfig.

Im kinda lost on the rest.


I posted it at the official forum:

The support there is a little slow, so Im gonna see if I can get some support over here.

$ and the command line

I can't see the tutorial you are using (clicking on the link gives me a "not found" page), but the reason you are getting "bash: eth0: command not found" is because you are prefixing the ifconfig with "$". This tells the shell to substitute the value of the environment variable "ifconfig", which presumably doesn't exist, with the result that the shell just sees the line " eth0", tries to find the command "eth0" to run, and fails.

In this case, the "$" in the tutorial is presumably the command prompt, and should not be included. Try again without the leading "$".
