Hi all -
I have jsut upgraded from openSUSE 11.1 to 11.2 following these instructions.
After rebooting into 11.2, several things are broken, the most serious of which is that the computer has no network at all.
Wifi is operating normally and connecting to the router, but even with a wired ethernet connection, ping, DNS lookup and all network services (including access to the repositories) are not working.
KDE 4 says that new hardware is detected, and asks to configure the network device “computer.” But, after the message that network manager is controlling the network device and that it should be switched to traditional ifup method, it says that "the package “iw” should be installed. Then it offers to install it, but, without a working network connection, is unable to reach the repositories.
Again, even with a direct ethernet connection the computer is not reaching the network, but the hardware seems to be configured and working properly.
Network access is also not working in gnome or KDE 3.
This is a Lenovo s10e netbook with no cd-rom drive, and I do not have a live USB. How can I get network access working again?
Once I have that I can set about fixing the other broken things in the install.
Thank you all!
