I appreciate the work that has gone into SystemRescueCd and I'm playing a little bit with the basic networking tools (even though the auto DHCP setup works fine). I want to be able to show my fellow LUG members how to setup their own interface if their distro fails to do it or they just prefer to. So I was working on this page using the commands there:
http://www.sysresccd.org/Sysresccd-Netw ... s-on-linux
Fairly familiar with the traditional ifconfig commands but not the iproute2 and since I read that ifconfig is deprecated, I thought it was a good time to learn the newer iproute2 equivalents. I got stuck though. I was able to add the interface but when I tried to add the default gateway I kept getting this error:
RTNETLINK answers: No such process
I figured out that the eth0 interface though set, was not "up" by using "ip address show". But I had no idea how to do this using iproute2 commands so I fell back to the old:
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 up
Then when I added the default route it worked fine.
I know I don't have to use the new command but I'm sure there must be the equivalent to bring the interface eth0 up. Does anybody know what that is?
I spent about 20 minutes trying to search on google and couldn't come up with anything. It's also hard obviously to search the phrase "ip address" since you get a deluge of people wanting to know how to figure out their IP address.
Thanks in advance!
