Installation problems with NW 2004s test-drive

74 Views

Hi

I'm installing N4S testdrive on a Dell notebook under openSUSE 10.2 with wireless connection. I mention the wireless part because I suspect by wlan0 settings may have something to do with it, but then, I'm not sure and need some advice.

When first installed, I checked with startsap n4shost and stopsap n4shost, and all seemed fine. When rebooted, I got on startsap n4shost:

<i>Warning: Could not found virtuell host in ifconfig list</i>

OK, checked a few settings, and ammended network config to look like

inspiron:/ # cat /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth-id-00:19:b9:57:a3:08
BOOTPROTO='static'
BROADCAST=''
ETHTOOL_OPTIONS=''
IFPLUGD_PRIORITY='20'
IPADDR='192.168.155.1'
MTU=''
NAME='Dell BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX'
NETMASK='255.255.255.0'
NETWORK=''
REMOTE_IPADDR=''
STARTMODE='ifplugd'
UNIQUE='rBUF.HQwXbECfpC4'
USERCONTROL='no'
_nm_name='bus-pci-0000:08:00.0'

Then when I started/stopped, I got same cryptic message when trying to stop (yes, starting looked OK) and <i>Waiting for cleanup of resources</i> took a lot longer than I've experienced with NW4 under RH9.

So I think it might be my inexperience with setting up a non-fixed IP address for my WiFi connection, as I can start N4S when on-line (sometimes). Also <i>ping n4shost</i> fails. I feel I should get it to work first, but not sure where to start.

Hope some kind soul(s) can help.

Thanks

Phil
