Hey all. Please bear with me, I'm sorta new to Linux.
I'm having some trouble with various things getting this Ubunutu install to do what I need it to do. I'm hoping I can get a little advice here, as this has been kickin' my butt all day. Basically, here's the short story.
In /etc/network/interfaces I have this:
Reason being, I want to have VirtualBox run off the bridge that's attached to one card (eth1), and have my host, Ubuntu, run off another. (eth0)
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# An entry for eth0 is no longer needed
iface eth0 inet dhcp
# Create the bridge (with the regular IP address of the host)
iface br0 inet dhcp
# bridge_fd 2.5
On reboots it does fine, creates br0 and attaches it to eth1 and everything gets an ip. The problem though, I have to run /etc/init.d/networking restart to get connectivity??
So, I did some googling around and found this:
And it looked like what I needed, so I tried it, but it still does the same thing, I log in and have no internet, do the restart and I do.
It is baffling me. Between this a couple other things I've been at it for a couple days now.
Any advice appreciated.
Oh, anothing quick thing while you're here - when Ubuntu is loading up (grub i guess?) it hangs for a minute, which is a new thing - and also after I log in it hangs for even longer on that pale screen before loading everything up. This wasn't happening until recently. How can I watch what services etc that it's loading up instead of the graphical, to perhaps find what it's hanging on?
