what does ifconfig return?
So I installed PHLAK (the Professional Hacker's Linux Assault Kit) to my hard drive. When I was running it from CD, everything ran without a hitch. When I installed it to my hard drive, networking stopped working. Someone help me out here. If anyone can help, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

ifconfig with no parameters returns nothing...device not recognized or some such nonsense...which seems to suggest that I do not have an active ethernet device...
If I run ifconfig eth0, it returns showing the number of packets received and transmitted...if I run the command again after a few minutes, it shows a different number...so I'm assuming my NIC card is still transmitting and receiving...
I am not, by any means, a Linux guru...so I'm pretty sure I'm just missing something insignificant...
I just can't understand why it would work when running from the CD, but when installed to the hard drive, it doesn't work anymore...
If I runI get the following output:Code:/sbin/ifconfig eth0
As you can see, the inet addr: part shows my ip address as being 192.168.6.128.Code:vmware@vmware-bavm:~$ /sbin/ifconfig eth0 eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:29:C7:D5:8C inet addr:192.168.6.128 Bcast:192.168.6.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::20c:29ff:fec7:d58c/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:71 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:77 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:44070 (43.0 KiB) TX bytes:6878 (6.7 KiB) Interrupt:18 Base address:0x1400
If you run that command, do you get an "inet addr" on that field?
I get no ip address when I run ifconfig...
I attempted to "arp -s (network address) (physical address)"
but I got "network unreachable"
I then noticed that my physical address under the ifconfig does not match my actual hardware address.
When I run from the CD, it runs eth1 instead of eth0, and has the proper IP, Broadcast, Subnet, and default gateway, and also the proper hardware address.
What "magic button" sort of command should I use to fix this?!
Do you happen to have more than one network adapter installed on your pc?
try to force your nic to get an ip address:
If that doesn't work, I'm thinking perhaps that your network card driver might not be loading at boottime.Code:/sbin/dhclient eth1
Can you post the result of the comand?Code:lsmod
This should show what drivers are loaded.
