destination network unreachable (Fc4 clean text installation )???


I tried to install FC4 from text mode by enter default gateway address , deselect dhcp and enter statics ip address. But when installation finish , i can't even ping default gateway.

However, if i issue the command
`ifconfig eth0 netmaks default up`

I can then ping the default gateway, but still get to internet but a destination unreachable.

ifconfig eth0 show me nothing wrong in ip and netmask.
I also look up /etc/sys-config/ifcfg-eth0 nothing abnormaly there either.

Can anyone give me any suggestion?

ps: there is no problem on network coz i use different hard disk to run debian and work fine on statics IP.

Have you added the dns ip addresses to your /etc/resolv.conf file? If not, add them and try again.

Do you have a line in your ifcfg-eth0 file 'ONBOOT=yes' I believe that should cause the interface to be active after a boot, without the need for the manual ifconfg command.

Hope this helps.

network unreachable

do you have a default route when you type ROUTE

if not add one:

route add default gw eth0

or what your default IP is. will most likely cover it

ok, i was very silly that i plug the cable in the wrong cat5 socket (i have 2 NIC)... So problem solve:P

But what i don't understand is how can i even ping the gateway address when the wrongly interface was never configured during installation?
