Anyway, now I can't use the network. And apt-get seems to
not function well without a network connection.
I tried modifying the standard
/etc/network/interfaces file to say that eth0 can use
dhcp but when I enable it there is no DHCP response.
(another ubuntu machine I have has a DHCP IP address so
I know there is a server on the network).
I've tried downloading the wpasupplicant package (networkmanager
depends on it) and installing from a flash drive.
gdebi says "Dependency is not satisfiable: libc6). When
I used Synaptic Package Manager it says libc6 is installed. I
suspect that someone can't find libc6 status over the network.
I tried modifying /etc/apt/sources.list to include the
deb file://localhost/media/disk-1 gusty main restricted
. This is where I have the wpasupplicant package. Doesn't
seem to find it.
So I am looking for ideas. Thanks
