Networking and GUI issues
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 24, 2007
Hello, I am fairly new to the linux world, So I don't know too much jargon. I've had Ubuntu installed for a few months now though, so I'm not a complete novice.
First off, I have an older computer I wish to use as network storage, For unknown reasons Ubuntu server edition wouldn't ever complete installing, So I decided to try other OSes, I went with cAos, because it seemed small and lightweight, and could run Xfce (im not completley comfortable configuring things with the command line alone yet)
First off, after installation I couldn't configure sidekick to install xfce, (i get "Error: failure No more mirrors to try") the wiki (seems i can't link yet..) has a solution but it didn't do the trick for me.
I decided to go ahead and try to set it up with the command line only, got samba installed and configured, and could see and browse the files from a windows machine just fine. Although I was sharing "/" only certain files could be played

I've configured it correctly and ran the make configcheck command and it says nothings wrong, but when I head on over to my servers IP and Port 8088 as assigned in the config it won't let me connect?

Wireless Networking GUI Fedora

Here is how I set up my wireless config using fedora on a T43.
# iwlist scan
I find the right AP in the list, and connect by typing the SSID in the network config manager GUI.
how can I scan for networks with a GUI like windows? In addition i need WPA support. My wireless connection works; But id just like a GUI to scan for networks.
[SOLVED] weird networking issues/long boot time after disabling GDM GUI
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 21, 2011
I have a Debian 5 Linux gateway/router/firewall setup with two nics, eth0 (external) and eth1(internal). Also this
Linux system is behind a Linksys router so eth0 obtains another private 192.168 address before getting out to the internet, fwiw.
I have been setting up DNS (Bind9) and DHCP3-server and have had it all working just fine
(clients can connect to the local 172.16.0.0/16 network and access the internet through the gateway with ip_forwarding between the nics) and I have restarted
several times with zero issues, until now.
However, I just recently disabled GDM GUI to speed up my system and restarted and now am encountering problems -- not that
I think the GDM change relates to it. My method for doing this was to Edit line 1 in the file /etc/X11/default-display-manager
from : /usr/bin/gdm to : false
I rebooted my system and got several problems:
Arch Linux Networking Issues
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 13, 2012
I need some help with Arch Linux and I can't register on the forums as I can't solve the question "What is the output of "date -u +%W$(uname)|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'"?" which I need to in order to register.
(tried "echo "date -u +%W$(uname)|sha256sum|sed's/\W//g'" but it doesn't accept the output in the registration (I've heard it might be broken though))
So I'm asking here.
When I try to connect to my network I type:
iwconfig wlan0 essid "id" key s:word
ip link set wlan0 up
(my essid is not ID and my password is not word, just put those in as I don't want to give my actual pass or ID (also, this command is for connecting to a WEP encrypted router (I know WEP is terrible), my router is only WEP for my Nintendo DS (the old one) and I don't know how to connect to WPA in Arch Linux as of yet (I will figure it out soon though) (just letting you know ))
Then dhcpcd just times out and I can't connect. I don't know what the p
Networking issues with r8169 Gigabit Ethernet on 11.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 25, 2011
I have an issue with my r8169 Gigabit Ethernet card. On windows the card works perfectly but on Ubuntu 11.04 I have issues that it constantly seems to loose connection and then has to go back again. When browsing this is very apparent as very often all sites fail to load and then I have to wait half a minute again before I can resume browsing. Then it works for about a few minutes and stops again.
This is pretty annoying as you can imagine. I googled a bit for related problems and I found some information about dual booting with windows but that does seem to be another problem as in those cases linux failed to have any networking at all. In my case I have networking but it stops and starts all the time.
Looking in dmesg and syslog I very often see these kinds of messages appear:
[ 5.844707] r8169 0000:03:00.0: eth0: link down
[ 5.845136] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready
[ 7.462225] r8169 0000:03:00.0: eth0: link up
pfSense as VirtualBox guest... Host networking issues
- date: November 24, 2013
So this is what I'm trying to do:
1. Set up pfSense as a VirtualBox VM running on my Ubuntu server as the FW/Router.
2. Have the pfSense VM be the DHCP server for my home LAN.
Unfortunately, this doesn't seem possible without setting up a static IP / routing on my Ubuntu host. If I have eth0 (the LAN card) set for DHCP, the boot process will hang waiting for network config since the pfSense VM is not up yet. Eventually it moves on, but eth0 is not configured.
I tried setting up eth0 to be a static IP, etc., and that fixed most of the issue. This is how I configured eth0:
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
Where 192.168.1.1 is the LAN address of the pfSense VM.
But when I try to ping from the Ubuntu host to a website, I get:
:~$ ping google.com

Ubuntu Headless Server with GUI for VNC with no monitor issues
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 10, 2010
I have a Ubuntu Server running 9.10 that I wish to use remotely using VNC.
I have installed GNOME and everything else I need to use VNC to log in remotely. GDM is set up to automatically log into the account on boot, and then lock.
However, when I try to boot without the monitor, to begin with I was getting a 'Ubuntu is using low graphics' error. I've established this is Bulletproof-X kicking in and forcing it to this dialogue.
I've tried deleting the xorg.conf.filesafe, I've tried creating a xorg.conf file containing this

12.04.3 64Bit Bonding and VirtualBox 4.2.2 packet loss and networking issues
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 18, 2014
I have pretty much given up on getting this to work correctly after a few days of trying. I have read all of the docs on Ubuntu bonding and anything I could find in respect of VM's and bonding. I can configure a bond fine and it works albiet with packet drop on the bond and the current active slave. This seems to be related to a bug in the ifenslave implementation when using Mode 6 balance-alb. My biggest problem is that I cannot get my VM's to work correctly on the server when a bond is configured.
My /etc/network/interfaces with both standard (non bond) and Bonding configs. The top part of the config is the standard config for this server. The VM's are set to bridged mode one on each physical nic i.e. eth0
I simply comment or uncomment the config I want to test.
When using the bottom config. I have tried the VM's bridged to bond0 and also directly to eth0 and eth1. When set to the bond0 interface I get significant packet loss and unusable networking. My VM's (1x Zimbra m
Two new networking issues with new core i7 system on a Gigabyte gaex58ud5 m/b
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 15, 2009
I just upgraded the core of one of my boxes from an AMD based Tyan S2915 m/b to an Intel Core i7 based Gigabyte ga-ex58-ud5 m/b. After experiencing some networking problems, I flashed the BIOS up to version f5, but no dice, so I am writing this now.
Problem #1 (and I mentioned this on another thread that I am parting from because there seems to be those who cannot see their network adapters and are dual booting where what I am now seeing is an improper initialization while single booting Linux):
On a cold boot with the TP (twisted pair) RJ-45 jack connected, on the connected tap I come up in 100 Mb/s mode (physically) with ethtool reporting the only physical interface on the tap being FIBRE running at 1000 Mb/s (not reality), so there is a definite break between reality and the mode Linux thinks the adapter is in. I noticed something peculiar in that the tap not connected correctly reported the availability of the TP physical device.
The work-around I stumbled upon is to shut
