I have a new install and I am quite surprised it just misses networking. That is, NO networking.
ifconfig comes up with inly lo. Nothing else, most primal.
It should use dhcp to connect, bit it fails to create the eth0 interface.
Such a fundamental flaw is one I can't work on. Forget looking in network manager in the desktop, that's still being installed, but it's no help.
I've checked the basic files in etc against karmic.
idella@squeeze:~$ cat /mnt/lucid/etc/network/interfaces
# Used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8). See the interfaces(5) manpage or
# /usr/share/doc/ifupdown/examples for more information.
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
This one had me puzzled. I was attempting to bring it up as a vm, and it just rejected the line
It accepted hotplug eth0, then didn't do it.
idella@squeeze:~$ cat /mnt/lucid/etc/networks
# symbolic names for networks, see networks(5) for more information
idella@squeeze:~$ cat /mnt/lucid/etc/resolv.conf
Any help appreciated.
