loss of internet with sabayon linux


Hi,

I installed the latest version of Sabayon linux (Very impressed, some wonderful eye candy). I can no longer get onto the internet, I have shut down and started again but to no avail. I am told there is something wrong with the network manager but I don't know what. I have two network cards which may confuse the issue.

Second question, how to I permanently put a directory into my path? I tried export PATH=$PATH:/directory but that only seems to work until I log in again.

Regards

Mat

With two network cards your internet connection may be on eth1 or eth0. Try /sbin/ifconfig to check if any network interface is bound to an ip address. If not, put this in /etc/network/interfaces

iface eth0 inet dhcp

For your second question, if you place that export in a file called .profile (note the ".") in your home directory, that export will be executed every login.

Given that information, you should create a file with a full path of:

/home/mat/.profile

Put in that file the export statement that you know works. Yes, this should load that export automatically whenever you login so you won't have to run the export manually.

Sabayon complains about not finding libdbus, could this the the root of our problem?

The thing with the .profiles folder worked a treat, I can now compile fortran 95 programs!!!

The thing with the network thing was there was no folder called network in /etc and the command iface threw up an error.

I did notice on the boot up that libdbus was causing problems as was r1000, which couldn't be found. Does this shed more light on the problem?
