    Problem found after installation


    Hi folks,

    OpenBSD 4.1 amd64
    Install on CD

    Just finished installing OBSD. On reboot OBSD started but encountering following problems;


    1)
    Unable to connect Internet

    # ping -c3 yahoo.com
    hanging here

    # ping -c3 192.168.0.10
    Code:
    ....
    3 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100.0% packet loss
    192.168.0.10 is the IP of this box on the router.

    # ifconfig
    Code:
    lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 33192
    	groups: lo
    	inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000

    can you ping your router?

    if you don't have a connection to the internet you wouldn't be able to cvsup so no point in trying that like you did

    Hi onlinebacon,

    I solved my problem 1). The solution is quite simple and straight forward.

    Just ran;
    # dhclient nfe0

    then
    # ping -c3 yahoo.com
    Code:
    .....
    3 packet transmitted, 3 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
    # ping -c3 google.com
    Code:
    .....
    3 packet transmitted, 3 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
    Internet connected. That is all.

    I found "nfe0" by running;
    # ifconfig
    Code:
    ....
    nfe0: flags=8843......
    ....
    My remaining problem is where to get "cvsup-16.1hp0-no_x11.tgz" for amd64.

    The problem probably is that Modula-3 is not supported on all platforms, and that is the language cvsup is written in. They only have packages for the supported platforms.

    Fortunatly there is a C-port of cvsup, csup. You should be able to find the csup-20060318.tgz package on your mirror.
