cannot connect to the internet after updates were installed
 
Hello,

I had not done updates for quite a while and there seemed to be alot. After I rebooted, I lost my connectivity (wired). I use other OS on same computer with internet access so it is not a hardware issue. I tried to use wicd but got message :
Code:

no module named dbus
Do I add:
Code:

auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp
to
Code:

/etc/network/interfaces
? Not used to using the cli to solve networking issues so would need help with this....

*Looks like there is no
Code:

/etc/network/interfaces
per se.

Thanks in advance...

Are you certain the dbus daemon is running?

Code:

service dbus start

I did:

Code:

/usr/bin/service start service_dbus
chmod: cannot access `/etc/rc.d/rc.service_dbus': No such file or directory
No service_dbus service

I also tried:

Code:

/usr/bin/service start service_wicd
it said wicd started but still no internet...

I'm stumped.

abrinister 08-25-2012 10:35 AM

This means the DBUS service is not called service_dbus. What is the output of

Code:

ls -l /etc/rc.d

Hello Alex,

BTW thanks for your patience, as I still understand so little of what's ''under the hood'' in linux in general...

Here is the result of ls - /etc/rc.d:

I see messagebus listed (systemwide) but should dbus (per-user-login-session message bus) be listed as a separate rc file?

abrinister 08-26-2012 06:30 PM

Not that I know of. I have always thought that dbus was system-wide anyway (hence the daemon).

hello again Alex,


I really don't know what to do next if NetworkConfig gui doesn't start: I don't know the exact commands in Zenwalk to get my wired connection working again. BTW I am using a router and Dynamic IP...

Also the Zenwalk wiki, online manual are down (in English) and one still CANNOT join the Zenwalk forum there is a template error and I had tried to contact the webmaster- but no reply!


(General Error
template->_tpl_load_file(): File ./styles/bo2Soft/template/captcha_qa.html does not exist or is empty

Please notify the board administrator or webmaster: webmaster@tulipe.kergonna.fr)

I will eventually start a new thread for that eventually because being able to join the Zenwalk forum would be helpful as well.

abrinister 08-28-2012 02:16 PM

Have you started DBUS? Is wicd working? Why do you need NetworkManager? Are there errors?

Alex Brinister

slipstream5s 08-28-2012 02:27 PM

Alex,

I wanted to know the EXACT command in the terminal because I am not familiar with Zenwalk or Slackware. I'm more comfortable with Ubuntu derivatives (Debian based) for example.

I guess i will try ''dbus-launch wicd''

and see what happens.

abrinister 08-28-2012 03:15 PM

The command is

Code:

/etc/rc.d/rc.messagebus start
Alex Brinister

slipstream5s 08-29-2012 10:55 AM

Unfortunately, I still couldn't get the network started:

Code:

# /etc/rc.d/rc.messagebus start     
1355 ?        Ss    0:00 dbus-daemon
1625 ?        Ss    0:00 dbus-daemon


I tried to modify /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf by adding use DHCP: yes and the Default Gateway IP and my DHCP hostname but messagebus start command gave new numbers:

Code:

# /etc/rc.d/rc.messagebus start     
1989 ?        Ss    0:00 dbus-daemon
1989 ?        Ss    0:00 dbus-daemon

but still no internet access...

Do you think that any other vital config. file may have gotten scrapped during the updates?

BTW, the Network Gui Panel and Netpkg Gui had both randomly stopped working at some point, don't have a clue why, and those had been nice features...

abrinister 08-29-2012 02:48 PM

Try to restart it

Code:

/etc/rc.d/rc.messagebus restart
Also try to restart the hal daemon

Code:

/etc/rc.d/rc.hald restart

Hello Alex,


I forgot to mention that I had tried to restart and even reload the messagebus; I figured out the possible commands with the tab button. At the time I had just logged out of Zenwalk and no change, but when I rebooted back into Zenwalk, finally!! I had network access again!

So I want to thank you again for your patience. Now I know a tiny bit more about linux in general-and at the same time, less gui dependant; that if all the components are still installed, its likely the services just have to be restarted- don't know if I am wording it right....

I'm still going to open a thread asking about access to Zenwalk forum, in case anyone has any info about it...
