    Default Wake on Lan(WOL) in opensuse 12.2

    Hi guys,

    I am using Opensuse XFCE 12.2 with XFCE desktop environment and I want to wake the system through WOL(wake on lan) and I have no problem with hardware settings i.e BIOS and I am able to wake ubuntu with the same hardware.But I am not able to do it in OpenSUSE 12.2.Can anyone help regarding this?.





    thanks in advance.

    As you only say you are "not able to do it"" but do not explain what you tried, it is a bit difficult to help. But did you use ethtools to check your NIC on what it is able to do and what is switched on?

    I have checked with ethtool and it supports 'pumdg' and 'g' is enabled.

    Thanks.

    This is a bit in the dark for me (I hope more knowledgable people will take over ), but I wrestled a few times with WOL. Mostly the systems were not able to do this even if the NIC could. But as you say that on at least one other Linux it functions with that particular system, that does not seem to be the case here.

    I only succeeded in waking up a system that was sleeping, but on the same system it does not work when I try to wake it from system off. Maybe you can ret if you caan wake it up from sleeping. Just to gather more info.

    I have used it with 12.2 and it works fine here.

    So, in addition to the support, you should tell us what you've done (step
    by step) to get it working, what happens when you try, and what tools
    you're using to try waking a system up - and what power state the device
    is in when you try to wake it up.

    Actually I am using wakeonlan tool in ubuntu and pass the MAC address to it "wakeonlan <MACADDRESS>"
    And I have enabled WOL in BIOS also.

    On openSUSE 12.3 (and previous versions) I just use the package wol and
    fire up
    Code:
    wol 78:2B:CB:9E:E7:94 # or other MAC address for other systems
    from my notebook to start my PC which acts as a server at home when it
    is powered off.
