I installed Kanotix to my hard drive and even though the live cd had no problem with ethonet connection, the installed version does not detect the connection, so I cannot log in to KDE.
I googled and did some searches and finally found in Rute the command line instructions for connecting to eth0. I used;
/sbin/ifconfig lo down
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 down
/sbin/ifconfig lo 127.0.0.3
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 192.168.3.100 broadcast 192.168.1.255 netmask 255.255.255.0
/sbin/route add -net 127.0.0.0 netmask 255.0.0.0 lo
/sbin/route add -net 192.168.3.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 eth0
/sbin/route add default gw 192.168.3.254 eth0
Then I was able to log in to KDE, use the network card config, and get online.
My problem is that every time that I log in, I get the same thing, I can't get into KDE until I do the whole /sbin/config thing all over again.
Would some kind soul out there in the ether please tell me what I am doing wrong?
