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
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 :?
