There is a patch for /sbin/dhclient-script in the above Bugzilla
thread, but if you are not familiar with the patch utility, you can
modify it yourself. As root, edit /sbin/dhclient-script and change ALL references to /dev/shm/sysconfig/ to /dev/.sysconfig/network/.
The files were moved!
Hi, I also have the problem of connecting to my router but not to internet.
I did change manually as root /sbin/dhclient-script
replacing all the references to
saved, restarted, deleted my wireless connection on network manager, set it again from scratch and voila!!!
Before this change, I was able to do:
su dhcpcd wlan0 and getting access to internet for some time. Something I remeber as well on 11.1 that made me move to WICD instead of NM. But this change did the trick!
I added 11.2-test, refreshed zypper, installed dhcp, dhcp-client, dhcpcd. I cleared the manual route I added (/sbin/route), I erased /etc/resolv.conf, and rebooted computer. Upon reboot, /etc/resolv.conf only contained a dozen comments (no “nameserver” line, should have had one). And no default route was on the list (should have had one). Did I miss a step?
Turn this into “dhclient”? I’m using the default install, so I presume that means I am NOT using dhclient. However, I’m still having issues with /etc/resolv.conf not getting the correct values (it is NOT even being modified at all) and I am not getting a default route (gw) added to my machine. All other GNU or WIN boxes are working just fine (wireless and wired). I’m still having a problem, even though it would appear as though I’m not using dhclient, but the ‘default’ dhcpcd. What should I do?
I had a feeling you weren’t hit by the original issue. I think it unlikely that using dhclient will help.
If you are using DHCP, then it should set IP address, default route, optionally hostname and the name servers. Does configuring network statically work? Check the log files when it starts to see if you obtain response from DHCP server.
Probably better to start a new thread, if you don’t solve it yourself access to DHCP server.
