Auditor Live CD ethernet


I recently downloaded the newest version of Auditor and tried to load it up in my vmware like I did with my knoppix cd. But unlike my knoppix cd when I check the network hardware with ifconfig all it shows for divices is "lo". I have a gigabit ethernet card, could that be why it doesnt see it????

If so is there a way to make it work??

Knoppix worked fine and I figured auditor would as well.

Perhaps the default kernel for this Auditor doesn't support your ethernet or didn't know how to detect it. If you know the module it uses, try loading it and configuring your eth device from there.

Well, yeah. When you have a LiveCD that pretty much just enables all support and with a DVD that can be packed full of 5GB of data on it.. you pretty much end up with everything..

I've done the latest version of Slackware once at around 300MB.. and there are floppy versions around as well.. sure their limited but work great as rescue floppies with minimal tools to fix what you need to fix..

wow, on a floppy disc, thats small, is LINT a linux on a floppy? cuase I have used that to reset admin passwords before and is on a floppy but I dont remember if it said anything about linux when it was loading.

yea I remember old installs of I think it was freebsd when i first learned it back in the 90's and it was like 298mb for minimul install or something like that which I though was pretty amazing since I was used to windoze eating my hardrive

Looked for an hour

I hope you've got it fixed now , seeing the time lapse in the reply here, but for others who are experiencing this now.. Yeah I had the same problem with Auditor, I couldnt get onto my network. Everything on the outside looked good.. My Eth card had been registered successfully by 4 other liveCDs and debian, so I knew it was good with linux.. The module for my pci eth card (3com Ethlink III, which happens to use module 3c59x) was showing up in lsmod, other liveCDs were booting into my network with no problem, and I couldnt figure out what the heck was going on..
I couldnt bring my interface up, said it didnt exist.the same thing was happening to me,
ifconfig would only show my loopback interface. It wasnt until I saw the boot message that says Auditor isnt going to detect my network settings as-per requested on boot commandline. Nice. Now I wasnt able to find the boot command to detect it, if anyone can help out there, much appreciated, but I did figure out how to create eth0 and send actually activate my network connectivity. this is for dhcp, and I was using a 2wire Gateway and SBC DSL. You dont need anything setup on other computers (unless you want to route through a firewall or another box for IP Fwding) And this is all assuming your hardware is compatible, you've already had the box online on a *nix liveCD of some sort and the drivers for the card are listed in lsmod.
edit /etc/network/interfaces to include the following :

#eth0 interface
iface eth0 inet dhcp

it took me awhile to figure this out, with all of the ifup and ifdowns saying eth0 was either busy or not configured or unknown interface, I was having me a good ole time.. so add that line to the interfaces file. now execute

ifconfig eth0 up
pump -i eth0
ping google.com

thats it. you should be able to ping other computers on your network and get online now.
Hope that helps anyone who has this wonderful tool and would like to actually use it on the given network.
