Same prob


hi there, i got the same problem as Ryanitus had..

i installed Mandrake 9.0 and im new on linux

everytime i want to set p the ethernet card this error returns:

Determining IP information for eth0... failed.
Can't locate object method show via package Jetzt aktivieren (perhaps you forgot to load Jetzt aktivieren?) at /usr/lib/libDrakX/ugtk.pm line 70.

dunno what linx 70 means..

help would be nice.. my desk has some corners less since i have linux =

Greets, KarbideN

Well, try the GUI (drakconf) and make sure the card is properly installed and that all modules are loaded.

That should work. If it doesn't unload the eth modules (rmmod) and using the GUI install the card and configure it...

I see the problem. run drakconf (or netconf) to set up the defaults of eth0. Then do it again. if it still fails do ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.2 and then ifconfig eth0 up


if nothing else works check teh config files:

/etc/hosts should include two lines:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.1.2 MY_PC_NAME (note: 192.168.1.2 is your IP)

/etc/sysconfig/network should say something like:
NETWORKING=yes
FORWARD_IPV4=false
HOSTNAME=MY_PC_NAME
DOMAINNAME=localdomain
GATEWAY=192.168.1.1

The ifconfig thingy should work anyway. try (when eth0 is down) ifconfig -a and see what returns in the eth0 entry.

Well, I'm not very handy with Windows' console but if you could give me the network info of the PC I could try and help you. First: the subnet mask? you need to be sure they match.

The IP, well, I usually try not to use the x.x.x.1 because it is one of the special ones (like x.x.x.255). But since you use it...

You need to make sure that the network cable works, because for what I saw here you are not connecting to anything here... How many PCs are there on the network (it could be two machines with the same IP)

Do you use a german version?? Anyway, the most important thing you want to check is that the cable works (there are special devices for that) and that you switch (hub or whatever you have) is working correctly. If you are using a special device such as a Router or a radio modem with many ports you might want to restart it after connecting the cable because those things have a way to remember the mac address of the machine connected.

To sum up, make sure that the settings between both computers match, like subnet mask and gateway and DNS (if you have any of those). Make sure there is no confilct with the IP and chek the hardware (cable, switch, router, whatever).

well..

yes, i use a german version, i am german

some info's about the network.. its a windows network.. 192.168.0.1 is a win xp machine with inet, every other PC on this lan uses dhcp.. get addresses automatically.. that works well with windows but i can't ping 192.168.0.1 .. if i get a con to that machine, everythings fine...
subnet mask is 255.255.255.0

the cable works.. im sure cause im only now.. i'm running windows at the moment on the same machine and i'm online through 192.168.0.1

hope that helps helping me

Ok, if every otehr machine is under dhcp why not this one??? DHCP ensures that there is no conflict with the IP. Anyway, I was doing some testing in my network and the only thing I can think right now is an IP conflict...

Check your dhcp configuration to verify what address range it's using and try using on of the addresses out of that range.

Anyway, the best way to ensure that there will be no IP conflict is the dhcp... from mdk you can configure it easyly using drakconf (draknet) and set it to dhcp/boot, then restart the network connection.

Well, I'm kinda out of ideas...

although. have you tried using an IP out of the DHCP's rannge??? because that erros seems like IP conflict.

BTW, do what I said on my last post and when you ping Leave it pinging for a minute... if nothing happends then you can move on. But sometimes it takes a while to start pinging... you know, with the broadcast and all that crap.
