    Hello and Welcome.
    It might be a good idea to tell people what you have tried and what has failed. Which Desktop are you using? I've not heard of Xpud so I haven't a clue. Where is the booting stopping at?

    System specs could be useful also. The more info the more likely you are to get help.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Mike, thanks for the reply --- The desktop is a gateway GT5670 -- The boot is a success and all four tabs are functioning -- when firefox is opened it does not connect to internet -- tried manual connecting by selecting DHCP (I believe that's correct) but system does not go on line -- papa50

    Issue 43 - xpud - Wired Net Issue - xPUD is a fast booting small Linux consists web browser, media player and easy-to-use interface - Google Project Hosting

    Open a terminal I guess. Post the output of the terminal command I will give you, and copy and paste what terminal spits out in a text editor, (whatever xpud uses), copy it to usb in xpud. Plug the usb into the computer you are posting from. Copy and paste the text doc readout inbetween code tags in your next post

    I googled xpud. Binary comaptible with Fedora and Ubuntu huh. Strange to me but that is nothing new to this uneducated biker. Anyhows. Here is the command. Copy and paste it into a terminal and lets see what xpud spits out.

    Code:
    sudo echo uname: && uname -a -m -p && echo lspci: && lspci && echo lsusb: && lsusb && echo lsmod: && lsmod && echo ifconfig: && ifconfig && echo ifconfig -a: && ifconfig -a && echo iwconfig: && iwconfig && echo resolv.conf: && cat /etc/resolv.conf && echo route: && route -n
    Hit enter and copy and paste readout into text editor like I mentioned earlier.

    also

    Code:
    sudo ip addr show
    also

    Code:
    sudo ip link show
    In case you need to open and post the text file and you are using Windows right now

    EditPad Lite - Free Text Editor for Windows


    By the way. To make learning Linux easier for you. In Xpud make a new text document. Any commands we teach you you should put in that document. Name it something Like Useful Commands.

    Save it for reference later, For the commands I gave. Give it a title inside the text file to describe what they do like

    #######Wireless and Wired info commands########

    It'll save you some time later on.

    Disclaimer: I don't know anything about Xpud but hopefully Linux is Linux.

    Roky. I hope you don't mind but I undeleted your post. It's still relevant and you spent a bit of time on it. PM any admin if you still wish to delete it also I think you may delete it again if you want.

    Don't pay attention to the Biker with his panties in a wad while he throws his toys while having a hissy fit,

    Greetings and Happy Trails to you papa50. Hopefully with a little luck we will get you connected. You picked a hard distro though for trouble shooting.
    Not a lot of Documentation on Xpud. Seems relatively new.
