Hi, Internet is not working in my 64 Studio environment 1.0. The DHCP protocol can't work with the network device card. That's a big problem since I can get any updates to fix it. Thanks.

2.6.21

The kernel in 64 Studio 2.0 is 2.6.21. Please try the 2.0 release and let us know the output of dhclient if DHCP does not work. In 2.0 you will find a desktop applet to manage DHCP connections, which should help.

Hi sirven, To help you we need more info. What hardware are you referring to (model numbers, revision numbers etc.) In the mean time, Dan and Free are on the verge of releasing the next stable version, 2.0 - and this might solve your problems. Please do post your hardware info though. Regards,

I have installed 64 Studio 2.0 and all networking works fine, because of the last Kernel version. A big thank you for your support.

Ok. I'm running on a PC dual processors Intel 2.13 ghz. The motherboard with networking card : Realtek ; RTL-8169SC Gigabit Ethernet I also added a Lacie Firewire card interface, connected to a MOTU 896 Firewire soundcard. A second soundcard made by NI that is the Kore interface USB 2.0, with midi interface and controllers outside. On the same computer, I have installed previously a version of Linux-Ubuntu 7.04 that works perfectly. Thanks

I made some research I have found a user that had the same problem on Fedora. He updated the kernel and is internet connection worked. It might just be the same thing for me. I was wondering which Kernel version will you have installed on 2.0 ?

You may be right. It looks like there is a problem with 32bit builds of the kernel, while 64bit is ok. On the development list there is a discussion going on to correct this, and the RT team is also hard at work to fix it. We'll keep you posted.

Check your console output

Hi Sirven, do you have FireWire on your machine? As 64 Studio supports FireWire networking, it may be that you are activating DHCP on the FireWire interface instead of the Ethernet interface, for example if your FireWire card is grabbing eth0. Try this, in a terminal: # dhclient eth0 # dhclient eth1 Cheers!
