Resarting Network on Knoppix live


I have installed the drivers for my wireless card using ndiwrapper, but how can I resart the network interface without rebooting because if I do then every thing is lost since I am using the live dvd version...

you need to open a shell, like Konsole and type...

service network restart

see how you go,
Regards, Glenn

OK then, try to take it down then back up again.

your web/network device could be eth0, ra0, etc. if you type

ifconfig what does it say? Just use that, but not lo

ifdown ppp0

then up...

ifup ppp0

When you do this the system should pick up any changes to the config, as well as nameservers.

Cheers, Glenn

ps. you need to be root.

Well that's why it's not working.

This has been a problem with live cd's.

You might try to use the network-settings in the "configure my computer", you may also get the option of restarting the network there(kde).

I hope that helps, btw how are you posting these massages? I mean sometimes no message is a good thing with linux.

You might also get it working by starting a new session, logout and log back in (x11-windows).

regards, Glenn

ps. My if config looks like this...

glenn@GamesBox:~$ ifconfig (04-10 23:48)
zsh: correct 'ifconfig' to '_ifconfig' [nyae]?
zsh: command not found: ifconfig
glenn@GamesBox:~$ su (05-10 00:04)

When I loggout, it logs out but back in automatically. And I get the same problem. I guess i am going to have to do a full install one day to fully test it out (not now tough ill just put the cd on the shelf 4 now).

I dont understand what u mean by how I am posting the messages... do u mean here on the forum?? if thats the case, I am just using a different computer...
