I'm Having Trouble Running Kudzu.


I'm trying to run Kudzu to see if it will actually recognize my ethernet card but it is saying I can't run it because of my access (can't remember the exact error). How can I get rights to change this? I'm the only user on this machine shouldn't I have full rights? Any help would be appreciated.

You need to be root. What distro are you using? As far as I know, every distro requires you to have a root account and a user account.

I am root, i even go in and type su - and then my password and it still doesn't allow me to run it. As for the distro I don't have any clue. Where can I find it? I'm a fairly new and havn't played around too much yet. Trying to get the internet hooked up first...

If you're root you should certainly be able to run kudzu.
What's the result of ...
# id

What's the result of ...
# uname -a

-or-

# cat /proc/version

Also, how about ...

# cat /etc/modules.conf

-or-

# dmesg | grep eth0

and finally ...

# lsmod

-and-

# ifconfig

I'm sure the apt has a dhcp based network, so prob the simplest thing to do would be, at the command line run "netconfig" and just select dhcp address assignment. That should produce
ip information for eth0 when you run ifconfig the next time ...
unless you have a broadband router with a firewall between you and the rest of the apt network.

You've got eth0 configured with the local loopback address 127.0.0.1 ... that's what the "lo" interface is for. So just run
netconfig and select "[ ] Use dynamic IP configuration (BOOTP/DHCP) " save and you should get the ip info from the
dhcp server for you apt's network.
