Thread: Internet worked during Live KDE, but not after installation

  1. #1

    Default Internet worked during Live KDE, but not after installation

    It seems that every linux distro I try works great during the LiveCD (in my case, USB stick) but after installation on my hard drive, some kind of distro-specific problem occurs.. I am not using a virtual machine, I want to install a solid linux distro onto my Alienware M14x as the primary operating system.

    So this is about openSUSE 13.1, I used the Live KDE version for a few days and everything worked fine. After I install to my hard drive (with a little difficulty about "allocating space" or something), it doesn't recognize that I have any network interfaces at all.. so after looking around the internet and my computer, i open network settings inside the control panel and it turns out YAST has no control over the network (as it showed in a warning dialog), and gave some instructions I didn't understand.. so i researched that too, and after switching it to "ifup" and rebooting, it still doesn't work.. so I look in the tray and clicked the "network management" icon, it says "network manager isnt running, please start it" (or something).. so I did more research to figure out how to start "network manager".. so i opened a terminal and got root access (i needed to be root for some reason) and typed "service NetworkManager start" and got the network manager to start, and only my ethernet port showed up. I still have no idea how to enable my wireless card.. when I open the "manage connection", all of the tabs are grayed out.. except VPN, and Wired is now available after starting networkManager. How do I make my wireless work again?

    I don't want this OS to be a constant project like Mageia was.. with constant posting of log files, executing shell commands, editing config files and other nonsense. I just want stuff to work, out of the box.

    With your wired connection
    Install rfkill (it's in Packman) see this: https://forums.opensuse.org/blogs/ca...ion-guide-149/

    Then post the result of
    Code:

    Do you have "kernel-firmware" installed? That's needed for the intel wifi to work.

    Is NetworkManager actually activated? YaST->Network Devices->Network Settings->Global Options.

    There are two mutually excluyent (?) network configuration modes in
    openSUSE. If you tell YaST that you are going to use ifup, then network
    manager is disabled, you have to do all the configuration in yast.

    To use network manager, you have to tell yast that the network will be
    user managed, so that it disables ifup and the network manager icon appears.

    ^mutually exclusive

    Whether I have the radiobox in "Global Options" set to Network Manager or Traditional ifup doesn't matter.. neither setting works. The only thing I did after installation of openSUSE was install VirtualBox stuff (through YAST because the RPM from virtualbox.org didn't work).. I checked all of the virtualbox checkboxes in the software installation utility and pressed "Apply". When I tried to copy my virtual machine (via USB) onto the computer, I got an error that said "filesystem exfat is not recognized" (or something).. I tried to research the error and find out how to make it recognize exfat, and noticed the internet wasn't working anymore.

    It sounds like I am going to have to dedicate an afternoon to JUST TO MAKE THE INTERNET WORK AGAIN.. I am almost tempted to dig up the Windows 7 DVD and install that.. almost.

    I'll post the other requested command output when I have the time (I have to copy it to a text file and transfer it via USB drive to post it).. maybe I should reinstall openSUSE and hope for better luck next time? I wish stuff would work like it's supposed to without me having to execute shell commands, analyze output and spelunk through menus and config files, double check driver configuration and other such nonsense.. or worry about what I install breaking basic system functions LIKE INTERNET.

    My Alienware is my workhorse, it's and crippled right now. I'm getting sick of using this Macbook, I need a powerful system


    openSUSE is still awesome! Thanks to all who have contributed to this thread so far, I appreciate the support.

    That's complicated. Easiest is to reformat that stick in Windows as
    plain FAT, or NTFS. The new format "exfat" (look it up in the wikipedia)
    is not currently supported in Linux; I think there is some experimental
    support, as that format is heavily proprietary and protected. Microsoft
    does not want other people to use it, specially for free. They want
    royalties, and that is not going to happen in the Linux world.

    Did you try the suggestion about kernel-firmware?

    That kind of thing (luck) happens with Windows, but seldom in Linux.
    Unless you choose different options, you get the same result.

    Linux is free and gratis, but you pay with extra work. Just live with it
    and enjoy... ;-)

    When you find what the problem was, you can create a bugzilla entry so
    that the issue is solved in the future automatically.
