I have installed OpenSuse as a VM machine on my Vista box. I cannot get Internet connectivity to the OpenSuse image.
I used the same VM image network configuration as another VM image that I have, which has XP installed on it. The XP image has connectivity. So I’m guessing that there’s some kind of networking config thing I need to do in OpenSuse to get it to find the connection using DHCP.
You’ve got a eth1 listed in there… so you could try running ’ ifconfig eth1 up '. I’d try YaST > Network Settings first… might be the eth card will show up and you can configure it.
Anyway… we’ll resume later
Ps. It just occurred to me that the reason your network card has vanished is because you probably built the vm image on another system or moved the files. When you do this vmware gives the vm a different mac address and your VM is now looking for the previous one… thus no connection.
You should be able to fix this by removing the network configuration in YaST, rebooting and reconfiguring.
