no network connection - just ran a installation suse13.1 - no wifi connection


Hi, this is my first post here.

I just finished installing Suse13.1 on my computer.
There is no network connection established either LAN or Wifi.
I suspect there are a few drivers missing, but how do i determinate them?

furthermore my Graphiccard (GeForce GTX 770) seems also to need a special treatment, because it does not show a life sign.

if you need some systemoutput, please leave a comment.

Nevermind,

Welcome to LQ.

In the BIOS, first make sure that IOMMU is enabled.

This should help you:

http://www.ehow.com/how_7705109_enable-iommu-bios.html

The GeForce GTX 770 needs a Linux X64 Nvidia driver from here:

Hi,

i have executed it, as described.
The only difference is, my Mainboard doensnt run BIOS but UEFI.

There is no network connection established right now.


Edit: I just tried to create a new user and the command "adduser" isnt known by the system - is something wrong with my installation?

Nevermind

Nevermind,

When I say BIOS, I take that to also include UEFI for the purposes of this problem.

Basically you need to gain access to Startup, regardless of whether you are using UEFI or BIOS and search for wherever the motherboard manufacturer has hidden IOMMU.

You have probably already disabled Secure Boot and Fast Startup.


1. Reboot the computer and note the key specified to access or enter "Setup" in the initial boot message displayed when the computer first boots.


2. Reboot the computer and immediately press and hold down the keyboard key or keys specified in the initial boot message. Note the navigation keys specified in the BIOS setup screen that appears. Usually the keys specified are the "Up," "Down," "Left," and "Right" arrow keys to move the cursor, "Page Up" and "Page Down" to highlight a selection in a list, the "Tab" key to move horizontally through settings, and the "Enter" key to select a highlighted setting.


3. Navigate through each BIOS screen using the "arrow" keys and find the "IOMMU," "I/O Memory Management Unit," or "Intel ® VT-d"setting (usually located under the "Advanced" or "Chipset/Northbridge/Tylersburg IOH/Intel VT for Directed I/O Configuration"settings menu). Move the cursor over the setting selection box using the "arrow" keys and press the "Page Up" or "Page Down" or specified key to select "Enabled."


4. Press the "F10" key or navigate to the "Exit" menu using the "arrow" keys and move the cursor to the "Save and Exit" item and press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Yes" selection when confirmation to save settings is presented and press the "Enter" key to save the setting.


Good hunting!

I wasnt aware it makes no different.

Thanks for the detailed description, as is to be found on the website.

I have already executed these steps as described. - there is no change im unable to ping my router or any other source.


---------------


The GPU driver is downloaded, but there is a error message displayed if i try to install it.

"There is no specialized application for diles of the type shell script (application/x-shellscript). The file can be opened in a more generic application as file type pain text document, or you can try to install a specialized application for file type shell script."

i have tryed to install someting proposed, but there is the internet problem still in my way..

Nevermind,

Please open Terminal, then type each of these commands separately. Press the Enter key after each command.

Code:
lspci

lsusb

ifconfig -a  
   
iwconfig 
                                 
rfkill list all 

sudo lshw -C network
Then copy and paste the output in your reply.

Click on “Go Advanced” and put the output in code tags (see # at top of message)

suse dose things with the nvidia driver SO DIFFERENTLY than other os's that there are SPECIAL suse only instructions
on the nvidia web site


you REALLY DO NEED!!! to fallow the instructions on the wiki !!!!!
https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA


using the *.run is called The Hard Way
you normally WANT to use "yast" or "zypper" and install the nvidia RPM's !!!

Nevermind,

Sorry, I am not used to using openSUSE.

Please follow JohnVV's advice regarding the nvidia graphics.

I also need:
Code:
su
ifconfig
In the meantime, please read up on Broadcom drivers on this LQ “Sticky” by frankbell:

beachboy2,

here is the output, and some additional information i found in the documentation from your post earlier.

some additional output for determinating which driver i need to install i recognized the system couldnt see my Wifi chipset.

Nevermind,

Thanks for that info.

Here is what I have so far.

Your ethernet controller is Broadcom BCM57781.

08:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM57781 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe [14e4:16b1] (rev 10)

Kernel driver in use: tg3

Kernel modules: tg3

You need to go here to download Broadcom Ethernet NIC NetLink Drivers Download Linux (tg3):
https://www.broadcom.com/support/eth...etlink_k57.php

You probably need to download the GPG key as well (bottom of page):
https://www.broadcom.com/support/eth...oaddrivers.php
Public GPG Key used for signing packages.

Your wifi (formerly wlan0) is now called enp8s0

Have a look at the Broadcom "Sticky" from frankbell for wifi.

I have to go out shortly.

You are on the right track. Good luck.

something everyone is missing

OpenSUSE is VERY!!! GUI !!! CENTRIC!!!

use YAST2 !!!!

on opensuse it is a lot easier to use the GUI than it is to try to do things in the terminal and have to manually restart services in systemv

open the yast GUI
( i use kde and not gnome )
so for kde it is -- "kickoff / computer / yast "

after you type in your root password the system config manager opens

click on "Network Settings"

that pops up a new window

set up the network ( this should auto find everything )
a cable Ethernet connection will "just work " - no need to change anything

wireless
you ? might? have to set up some things

the DEFAULT!!! settings for suse of to use the NON dynamic "network" ( aka "ifup / ifdown" )
for dynamic of WIRELESS you need to use the DESKTOP managers "network-manager"

you set this also in the above gui
by turning off the service in that gui


you might want to read the guides for SUSE


while suse is a rpm based distro
It dose things DIFFERENTLY than ( RedHat) RHEL or Fedora
-- older docs -things are being reorganized
https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Official_documentation

newer docs
https://activedoc.opensuse.org/

@John VV,

Thanks for your informative input.

@Nevermind,

Over to the openSUSE/yast2 specialists.

I am going to stick to the "Bunties", "Minties" and "Debs" with sudo and apt-get, thanks
