hi, I installed studio64 with the DHCP network option which worked perfectly with Suse, but I can't get Internet access after the installation. My network card is detected, but when eth0 is trying to receive the data from DHCP it fails every time. I tried it with a Debian live CD and it worked all right, so there may be something special to Studio64 that let's it fail. Help appreciated, thanks.

hi, i got this a few times,

In step 4) you made a typo: It should be linux-headers-2.6......headers, not heards Try again. Let's see if it works. Yes, you're getting closer

thank you again pablo for your help. i'm getting closer! haha. I modified the make file to my linux kernel (i think) and then 'sudo rmmod r8169' ok, then i type: sudo make clean module It goes good, until half way through where it states: make[1] entering directory '/home/mychael/r8168-8.008.00/src' make -c /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.21-1-multimedia-amd64/ SUBDIR=/src modules make[2] entering directory '/usr/src/linux-heards-2.6.21-1-multimedia-amd64' scripts/makefile.build:17 /src/makefile: no such file or directory make [3] *** no rule to make target '/src/makefile'.

sudo apt-get install package

Hi Mychael, 0) Insert the DVD and update the package list. sudo apt-get update 1) Install make and gcc: sudo apt-get install make sudo apt-get install gcc 2) Install kernel sources sudo apt-get install linux-kbuild-2.6(TAB) (it should autocomplete to something like ...2.6.21-multimedia.....) sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6(TAB+TAB) (two options I guess, install both) TAB autocompletes when there is only one possibility. If there is more than one, it lists all the possible options to complete the command, the second time you press it. To edit a file you'd better use gedit instead of vi. Don't forget sudo: sudo gedit /path/to/the/system-file-you-want-to-edit Cheers Pablo

pablo thanks for your help.

pablo thanks for your help. I did: 1. Install make and gcc apt-get install make apt-get install gcc But then this is where I ran into problems, 2. Install kernel souces apt-get install linux-kbuild-2.6.18 apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.18-6 apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.18-6-686 I know you said use tab to auto complete, so what i did was type "sudo apt-get install " (key). the tab key showed me a list of directories. lol. what am i doing wrong? i'm sorry. also i found out when i "vi" into a document, i don't know how to exit it. thank you, Mychael

Hi Icepot,I don't really

Hi Icepot, I don't really know if Gabriel's tutorial can help you but let's hope so. Just two notes: 1) To install packages you have to be administrator. "apt-get install package" doesn't work from a user terminal. Type "sudo" (with no quotes) before apt-get install. The same applies when you need to edit a system file, for example when "vi /etc/..." you need "sudo vi /etc/...". 2) The linux kernel version in the 64studio DVD is not the one in the tutorial. To install the kbuild and headers suggested, use TAB to autocomplete to get the correct version. You can always launch synaptic, make sure that you have the 64studio DVD inserted and the cdrom repository selected. You'll see all the available packages. To check your ethernet device model, type in a terminal: lspci | grep Ethernet "lspci" lists all the pci devices and "grep" filters the lines with "Ethernet" word written in them I hope this helps Pablo

I found this

I found this article: Installing Realtek RTL8111 (R8168) on Debian Linux and I think that it might help me. However, I did exactly what it said and I ran into problems. Mainly I didn't know what the flip I was doing, and some of the directories didn't exist. So if anyone could help me to install this I would greatly appreciate it. I'm very new to linux, this is actually my first distro in over 10 years.

Mine works by connecting the router to the PC, and it will connect automatically. What network hardware do you use?

I am having the same

I am having the same problem. I cannot connected to internet. I am wired into the router. It used to be that the Connection Information wouldn't find anything, but then somehow i got it to connect but not to my router. When I use the command: ifdown eth1 ifup eth1 it will: DHCPDISCOVER on eht1 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 5 DHCPDISCOVER on eht1 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 7 DHCPDISCOVER on eht1 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 12 DHCPDISCOVER on eht1 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 18 DHCPDISCOVER on eht1 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 12 DHCPDISCOVER on eht1 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 7 No DHCPOFFERS received. No working leases in pesistnet database - sleeping. BUT then in the GUI it says established connection and it doesnt work. In fact i get a completely useless ip adress as it is nothing close to what my router gives off for working ip's.

eth0

Most times eth0 is an firewire to ehernet interface, as the firewire gets enumerated first. My (only) network card is eth2 for instance. Hope it helps
