I use netconfig and select the option to automatically optain all my addressed. I then try running network restart and nothing happens so I log out and log back in. Before anything loads I get the Error: "Could not look up internet address for local host. This will prevent Gnome from operating correctly.. It is possible to correct this by adding local host to the file /etc/hosts.
I have a couple questions about this:
1) I get a bunch of different ip numbers from various differnt spots. When using windows programs show that I am viewing things from the address 22.214.171.124. When i run ifconfig it shows my local host address as 127.0.0.1 and subnet address as 255.0.0.0 and I find a network IP of 10.0.5.32 using belarc advisor on my system...WHAT ARE ALL THESE numbers?
2) Is there a small program that I can download to set up these settings? I have to put it on some sort of disk then reboot to linux to install it.
3) Is it possible that my network card is still not working correctly even if it says it is activated?
This is really starting to get to be a pain in the @$$.
