View Full Version : [ubuntu] \etc\network\interfaces doesn't exist

October 22nd, 2008, 12:43 PM
as the topic says, if I type nano etc/network/interfaces , nothing is there. It just says "new file"

If I try make my own one, it wont write as it says "File name or directory doesn't exist"

I've tried reinstalling, no luck.

Ifconfig reports my network working fine, and i'm able to ping other computers.

PLEASE help as this is seriously frustrating me!

edit : I got the slashes wrong in the heading. My bad.

That's because you need to type:

sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
Note the extra slash before the "etc"

I love you.
Marry me.

THANKS! You don't understand how confused I was! Working 100% yesterday, and then all of a sudden not!
