So I've tried to install a PCI card, I've installed a VIA VT6105 PCI based
network card and SAME ISSUE.
- FF can reach network
- ping works
- yum doesn't work
- gnome's network icon show no network.
I think it's a Fedora's bug, because different network, different modules, same
Please FIX this or help me to have a normal situation.
the fact that ping/browser works suggests the driver is fine, so my thinking is
that this must be a problem in the gui tools.
system-config-network says it is "active" !!!
(In reply to comment #11)
> system-config-network says it is "active" !!!
yes it is, but can be that says it is active but forget to change something?
what is the output of (as root):
That should be:
[root@b-52 ~]# /sbin/mii-tool eth0
eth0: negotiated 100baseTx-FD flow-control, link ok
[root@b-52 ~]# /sbin/ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
Supported ports: [ TP MII ]
Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
Advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
Supports Wake-on: pumbg
Current message level: 0x00000001 (1)
Link detected: yes
Changing back the hostname from b-52 to localhost.localdomain yum works!
gnome's network icon still not working.
I've a _fresh_ Fedora Core 4 final version installed.
I've changed the default network configuration -> dns -> hostname from
"localhost.localdomain" to "b-52" and yum stop working.
Browser and ping work.
Switching to another network (from integreted nforce4 to VIA VT6105) same results.
Backing to "localhost.localdomain" let yum to work.
when I say yum stop working I want to say that cannot reach repositary, it stops
like in the image attached.
The only way is to hit ctrl-c and terminate the process.
Ok now yum works, don't know why, also with b-52 hostname, it is very slow on
retrieve informations about repositaries, but it works.
Gnome's network icon works after entering eht0 as I have read here
