Configuring IP in Knoppix
Basically here is my problem; I cannot connect to the internet in knoppix. I need the net to send myself some files (yes I have tried to mount a USB device and can't get it to mount for the life of me). Everytime I try and manually set the IP it says:
"The action you requested needs root privileges...blah blah Please enter roots PSW.
'/etc/lisarc'; chmod 644 '/etc/listarc'; rm -f
*BTW what does that message mean?*:confused:
I thought ok I'll just set it in the root shell by using:
# ifconfig ethX 126.96.36.199
# ifconfig ethX netmask 255.255.255.0
# echo nameserver 188.8.131.52 >> /etc/resolv.conf
# route add default gw 184.108.40.206
that didn't work either, so I browsed this form and found this link that had ways to set the IP and or get the net to work
none of those work either. I notice after I use the root shell and I go back to Konqueror, it never has the appropriate IPs saved...and when i try to set them in konqueror it gives me the message about privileges.
Look, I'm not completely a newbie at linux but its my first time using Knoppix. If you guys have suggestions or know what I'm possibly doing wrong let me know, your help is much appreciated.:p
