I have just installed Centos 7 on VMware as a quest on Windows. Surprisingly centos 7 does not install the network (i.e. no internet) after install (unlike previous versions of centos). I have gone through the centos forum and have not been able to find an answer. When I try
DEVICE TYPE STATE CONNECTION lo loopback unmanaged --
I have tried several other commands and they take me nowhere. I copied the following rpm packages from the installation iso image:
NetworkManager-1.0.6-27.e17.i686.rpm NetworkManager-config-routing-rules-1.0.6-27.e17.i686.rpm NetworkManager-server-1.0.6-27.e17.i686.rpm NetworkManager-devel-1.0.6-27.e17.i686.rpm
I installed these with
rpm -Vuh "package"
The first three showed an indication of being installed. The fourth did not install due to dependencies.
gives the same result.
gives command not found. I am really stuck. I see the same question here enter link description here posted on 13th January 2017, 22 views, no reply. Please help, how can I setup an internet connection?
