How to configure NIC cards in FC7


Hi guys,

I usually configure NIC's on my fedore systems by typing netconfig once i have net-tools installed which can be easily done by yum.

I have upgraded one of my systems with Fedora Core 7 and it doesn't seem to accept this command even though net-tools is installed.

I've also tried /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 but it says access denied.

Any help?

thanks in advanced.

use system-config-network

You should be able to edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 manually as root if you really need to.

it should come with a default installation unless you go for a very very minimal installation.

You can use `yum provides` to find out what provides a file... for example:

Code:
# yum provides system-config-network
Loading "downloadonly" plugin
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
Loading "protectbase" plugin
Determining fastest mirrors
0 packages excluded due to repository protections



system-config-network.noarch             1.3.96-1.fc6           fedora          
Matched from:
system-config-network



system-config-network.noarch             1.3.96-1.fc6           installed       
Matched from:
Provides-match: system-config-network
which means that system-config-network is provided by system-config-network
RedHat/Fedora has quite a few system-config-* packages/utilities that are very handy

Same place as above, just hit the DNS tab. More than likely, it is an issue with your isp's (or whatever DNS the machine is set to) DNS rather than a Linux issue.
