|scrubb2000||hitmanwilly, I can't seem to grab an IP from my router.|
|flaccid||what is the name of your ethernet device?|
|scrubb2000||hitmanwilly, but it works fine in XP.|
|scrubb2000||flaccid, ehh, eth0 and eth1. THey're nvidia gigabit lan controllers on an nforce 680i SLI board.|
|hitmanWilly||flaccid, it's a marvell yukon chipset|
|scrubb2000||hitmanwilly, is it for sure?|
I only remember seeing that somewhere...I couldn't find it written in the manual.
|hitmanWilly||scrubb2000, what is the exact name of your mobo?|
|scrubb2000||Asus P5N32-E SLI|
|flaccid||scrubb2000: so which one is connected to the LAN that needs the dhcp addresses?|
|scrubb2000||flaccid, I don't really care...but I have the cable plugged into eth0. Linux sees it, and ifconfig shows it as being "up" but dhclient can't get an IP from my router.|
|scrubb2000||I wonder if there are any known incompatibilities with linux and my netgear router.|
|flaccid||so can you please pastebin the output of sudo dhclient eth0|
best to find out why first..
and there are no incompatibilities. both should follow the dhc protocol
|ubotu||pastebin is a service to post large texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org (be sure to give the URL of your paste - see also the #kubuntu channel topic)|
flaccid, this is for dhclient with no args.
|flaccid||i dont' want that|
also pastebine the output of ifconfig -a
|scrubb2000||Well too bad cause I have to reboot to do it again. =P|
I have that one too...
|flaccid||why do you need to reboot|
|scrubb2000||Dual-boot...I'm in XP right now.|
|hitmanWilly||flaccid, he's on dual boot|
well i need it
to confirm stuff
i would also recommend removing *network*manager*.deb
|scrubb2000||flaccid, here's ifconfig -a: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/16054/|
|flaccid||because networkmanager is shite and it was always not working - putting the iface up but not running dhcp|
and status of networkmanager?
|scrubb2000||I don't have that right now.|
|hitmanWilly||scrubb2000, if its a default install, its probably on there|
