openSUSE in a VM - no ip after updating opensuse

Using openSUSE 13.1, I did “zypper up” today and I updated 1600 packages … after finishing this, I did a reboot, now my VM got no more IP.

I restartet the network and I rebooted several times. Any ideas? If you need specific informations, please let me know what and I’ll get those.

Best regards

Where from did you get that many updates?

Please post (paste, not photo) the text resulting from this command:


zypper lr --details

using a code tags block — the ‘#’ button in the forum editor. If you
don’t know how to use code tags, ask and don’t post the command till you
know how to use them.

I noticed my ethernet-adapter was called eth0 before. So I went into yast, Network Settings, and I simply changed the adapter name on my default route. After doing this, I just got my IP.

Update :wink:

I would have done this, but in my VM I can’t use my mouse so copy & paste wasn’t possible here. Without IP no SSH connection possible.

The name should not matter.

But you might have had two conflicting configurations for the same interface (with different names).
This is a known problem when upgrading to 13.1, see the release notes:
https://doc.opensuse.org/release-notes/x86_64/openSUSE/13.1/#sec.131.systemd-networkif

But renaming the interface to the old name is fine too, and should survive future upgrades.

I see.

But in graphical mode, the virtual machine tools should allow pasting
between guest and host.

Anyhow, you probably have incorrect repos defined, because 1600 updates
is not normal for 13.1

If this is a new 13.1 and hadn’t ever been updated, I would easily expect a very large number of updates, because it has been around for so long if the original install is from the original ISO a full system update would almost be a complete system re-install.

You should learn a few basic keystroke combinations because the mouse won’t always work.

If the mouse is not working, keyboard shortcuts should work, eg
The “Windows” shortcuts which normally are supported in many apps
CTL-C copy
CTL-V paste

Or, the “Unix” shortcuts which typically should always work
CTL-INSERT copy
SHIFT-INSERT paste
