Thread: No internet after install of openSUSE 12.3

  1. #1

    Default No internet after install of openSUSE 12.3

    I just installed openSUSE 12.3.

    All seems to be fine besides one thing, I do not have an internet connection.

    (I type this from the same pc, which is thank god dual boot)

    I do not have a clue were to start, to solve this.

    I did of course look around, so clicked the network icon.

    It says I need to start the network manager, but I don't know how.

    Does anybody know a step by step guide to set up, and or check, the internet connection on openSUSE ?

    I did try a few things, but then I get screens which wants me to provide a user name and password.
    I am 99% sure I never needed a username and password, not on windows nor on Linux.

    My provider is upc which is not listed in yast, ( I am from the Netherlands, cable internet wired )

    With earlier installs of openSUSE, I used to get a screen, which asked me if I was connected to the internet, this did not happen during this install.

    Wouldn't it be an idea to ask this in the Dutch section (in Dutch of course), because there are probably more UCP cable users there.

    And of course you saying you have no internet connection is a sort of end-user's conclusion. The first question is what happed that you jumped to that conclusion?

    As a system manager, you should first check if your NIC is up and has an IP address:
    Code:
    /sbin/ifconfig -a
    Then if you have a default router:
    Code:
    netstat -rn
    When yes, then if you can reach a system on the internet using it's IP address
    Code:
    ping -c1 130.57.66.6
    When this works try with a host.domainname:
    Code:
    ping -c1 forums.opensuse.org
    When that fails check your DNS server configuration:
    Code:
    grep -v ^# /etc/resolv.conf
    Post the result here and do not forget the CODE tags around them

    I saw the same on 2 of 3 openSUSE GNU/Linux installs which I noted here: https://forums.opensuse.org/english/...-hardware.html

    But in truth it was easy to fix. I simply went to Yast > Network Devices and Network Settings (?) and tuned the ethernet device (in one case I simply accepted the settings already in place). I then closed the YaS Network Settings (?) application, and I had Internet access via our home LAN.

    Hi all. My first post on here, and only created the account for this issue without realising that there were many posts already on here. To be honest I think its a bit short sighted to not have easy access to enable network manager on a new bulid, especially as it will be many peoples first experience with SuSe and without the internet your basically stuck.

    Anyway, after just doing an arch install I did remember that you need to start and enable it.

    Code:
    # systemctl start networkmanager.service
    # systemctl enable networkmanager.service
    The above starts the service and enables it as recurrent service for each reboot respectively. Having dabbled with Suse many years ago (have a 7.0 box which I found in the loft). Used Mac's since 2005 I'm only just back to finding the love hate relationship that we have with Linux. Great once you find your way around, way more hastle than a Mac, but so much more rewarding!

    Anyway: Have Lots Of Fun!

    There was a post in the mailing list about this, but I can't find it now to quote

    The gist of it was this was a mistake that crept in toward the end that was missed. Preparing a GNU/Linux release is very complex and it is most unfortunate this happened. I think to help as volunteers we need to find a way to get the news out about the simple fix.
