Help-Lost connection to internet

Hi all newbie here that needs a little help. I am running unbuntu 6.06LTS (Dapper) on a dell i8200 laptop. Installed to HD and all went well. I have a wireless linksys PCMCIA card that was detected and installed. Internet access was fine. I did a upgrade using the upgrade program in ubuntu. After upgrading i was still able to use and access the internet via firefox and read emails. Fired the computer back up this morning and no internet access and no mail reading. I no longer can access the internet. I noticed in the network settings that i only had lo and eth0. I reinstalled ubuntu hoping to correct the issue, still nothing. Tried using static and put my settings in still nothing. switched back to DHCP still nothing.Any advice.

Internet connect

I have recently installed Ubuntu 6.10 on my laptop. I partitioned my hard drive so as to be able to boot either Linux or Windows and now have both OS' running well on my laptop. I am unable, however, to connect to the internet through Ubuntu because I haven't a clue about configuring my modem. This post, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=201127&highlight=sagem, seems to make a bit of sense to me yet is nowhere near being basic and thus I can't understand fully what I am supposed to do. I am yet to find the basic instructions for setting up an internet connection on any of the Linux forums, web sites etc.What is a 'shell'?, for instance.Do the commands mentioned in the above site have to be entered in to the 'terminal'?I have the necessary Sagem 'eagle-usb' download on the Ubuntu desktop yet have no idea about installing that or anything else on Linux. I have tried to install the drivers etc that comprise the eagle-usb download yet am getting absolutely nowhere. Is everything re downloading installing files etc always so difficult? If so, I am extremely disappointed with the 'user friendly' OS.

Sun Java

I have in the past installed Java on Ubuntu by using "java-package" and basically following the procedure set out for Debian. However, recently i got myself a new laptop and when i've tried to go through the process i found that the packages have changed. Is there a description of installation process. I really need 1.5.Also maybe somebody knows. Now that Sun GPL'ed Java, maybe debian package will follow... q;-)

Ubuntu, Veritas Backup Exec and you...

I've been meaning to post this for about a month now and am just finally finding the time. I had such a time getting this installed that I thought someone migh benefit from my searches.I needed to get our linux servers (running Ubuntu 6.06) into our nightly backups. We had them doing manual copies of certain things to a windows machine and backing up that, but obviously, that's not optimal. The problem is, the backup software we were using (Veritas BackupExec 10) is only supported on Suze and RedHat, so their technical support couldn't help me.Here is a step by step of what needs to be done:

  • #change the port Webmin listens on (because ralus uses 10000) to port 10101
  • nano /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf
  • #create a beoper group and make root a member
  • groupadd beoper
  • adduser root beoper
  • #mount the cdrom:
  • mount /dev/cdrom /cdrom
  • #copy all the installation files to a "ralus" dir in home
  • cp /cdrom/RALUS/linux/pkgs/linux/* ~/ralus/
  • #install rpms:
  • ~/ralus/VRTSralus-10.00.5484-0.i368.rpm
  • ~/ralus/VRTSvxmsa-4.2.1-211.i368.rpm
  • #install the c++ library neede by ralus
  • apt-get install libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2
  • #extract files from the tar archive:
  • tar -xvf ~/ralus/ralus.tar
  • #copy the initialization file:
  • cp ~/ralus/VRTSralus.init /etc/init.d/
  • # make it executable:
  • chmod a+x /etc/init.d/VRTSralus.init
  • # start the remote agent
  • /etc/init.d/VRTSralus.init start
  • # to get packages online
  • http://ubuntu.cs.mtsu.edu/packages/misc/
  • get vrtsralus && vrtsvxmsa

Installing Kubuntu 6.06 Dapper on Acer Travelmate 2420

I just joined the Ubuntux community and this is my first message. So, "hi!" to everybody.   I just bought my new laptop which is -as you see- Acer Travelmate 2420. For people who are thinking of a bargain price, it has a very good value of USD 600. It has built-in wi-fi capability with 1.9 GHz Intel Centrino. Mine has the ipw2200 wireless chipset, some of the notebooks in this series has Atheros chipset.   Regarding the notebook, it has pre-installed Linux options, but I couldn't find one in my country [Turkiye]. Accepting the EULA does not matter, since it is preinstalled, you have to pay the price [ridiculous but it is a "take it or leave it" situation]. Knowing that I paid the price and the hard disk will be "fdisk"ed in a couple of minutes, I accepted the EULA and written the four recovery cd's. Note that Acer does not give the recovery cd's but you make them when you boot. I put the cd's in my case thinking that in the future I may need them somehow [when selling my notebook].

Install app don't run

Hello everybody, I am new with Ubuntu, I used to work with Fedora and Knoppix, I know taht ubuntu is some similar to Knoppix so I tried it. I have a HP nx9010 laptop.I boot from Live CD 6.10, it takes some time but finaly the desktop appears. Then I tried the Install icon on the desktop, the CD tray started to work, and it went for two hours until nothing happened, no other window nor screen appeared, display was frizzed and the CD-ROM was not being read at all. I had to manually reset. Then I tried to install from the System menu, the same problem, it went a couple of hours reading CD-ROM and then nothing. I had to say taht I had Mandrake 10, Redhat 9, Fedora Core 2 and 5 and Knoppix installed on that laptop, so I know it can handle linux.Thanks for the advice
