I am brand new to linux and am unable to connect to the internet in Fedora 19. When I type
ifconfig I get:
lo: flags=73 mtu 65536 inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0 inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128 scopeid 0x10 loop txqueuelen 0 (Local Loopback) RX packets 150 bytes 12792 (12.4 KiB) RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 150 bytes 12792 (12.4 KiB) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0 p9p1: flags=4163 mtu 1500 inet6 fe80::96de:80ff:fe2d:8274 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x20 ether 94:de:80:2d:82:74 txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet) RX packets 85 bytes 11964 (11.6 KiB) RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 0 bytes 0 (0.0 B) TX errors 0 dropped 94 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0
Also when I type
netstat I get:
Active Internet connections (w/o servers) Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State Active UNIX domain sockets (w/o servers)
I have tried to find what I can do to connect to the internet and I have been unsuccessful. I am using a wired connection through a router. I can ping 127.0.0.1 but cannot ping out.
When I open /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts ifcfg-profile_1-1 I get this
TYPE=Ethernet BOOTPROTO=dhcp DEFROUTE=yes PEERDNS=yes PEERROUTES=yes IPV4_FAILURE_FATAL=no IPV6INIT=yes IPV6_AUTOCONF=yes IPV6_DEFROUTE=yes IPV6_PEERDNS=yes IPV6_PEERROUTES=yes IPV6_FAILURE_FATAL=no NAME="Profile 1" UUID=d5d3e20c-6ef1-4e11-bf40-0cf5a7c6b463 ONBOOT=yes
Since PEERRDNS=yes what server information am I putting in the /etc/resolve.conf since mine is blank? Also in my network-scripts file I have ifcfg-lo and ifcfg-profile_1 and ifcfg-profile_1-1
When I type sudo dhclient p9p1 -v I get dhclient (2039) is already running -and exiting. this version of USC dhcp is based on the release available on FTP.isc.org. features have been added and other changes have been made to the base software release in order to make it work better with this distribution.
