    Installed K no etho


    Once that I installed Knoppix to my hard drive, it would no longer connect to the internet, nor would it let me log on to KDE, due to lack of internet connection.

    I can make it work by using the command line;

    /sbin/ifconfig lo down
    /sbin/ifconfig eth0 down
    /sbin/ifconfig lo 127.0.0.3
    /sbin/ifconfig eth0 192.168.3.100 broadcast 192.168.1.255 netmask 255.255.255.0
    /sbin/route add -net 127.0.0.0 netmask 255.0.0.0 lo
    /sbin/route add -net 192.168.3.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 eth0
    /sbin/route add default gw 192.168.3.254 eth0
    hostname localhost.localdomain

    Then I can log into KDE and by using netcardconfig, log on to the internet. The problem is that I have to do this each and every time that I reboot! There has to be a better way and I am hoping that someone can point me to it.

    Thanks, zoey

    You just need to add all those commands to the /etc/init.d/local file.

    Thanks. I should have said that I am running Kanotix/Knoppix and it has /etc/init.d, but no /etc/init.d/local, or am I just not understanding the correct way to type it in? That is certainly a possibility.

    /etc/init.d is a directory which has all the initscripts that could be used. /etc/init.d/local is a file, you should have it.

    Knoppix is based on Debian, that's why.

    I found /etc/network/interfaces, which looks like the file that I want, at least it starts out;

    iface lo inet loopback

    and that is how the debian file is described in rute.
    I added all the information and also went to the /etc/network/options file and changed ip_forward=no to ip_forward=yes, but I still can't log on to kde without re-entering all of the imformation from my first post.

    There has got to be a way to do this and I would appreciate some more suggestions to help me find it!

    Thanks, zoey
