Network driver unstable inside VMWare Workstation 11?

Postby nellson » 23 Apr 2015, 18:17

I have used SysRescueCD a lot, but for the first time I am trying the latest .iso on VMware WorkStation 11 in bridged mode, and getting flakey network results?

I tried using net-setup. But in never installed the default gateway. I could ping my DG, but netstat -r only showed my directly connected network.. well.. for a few pings.. then even that disappeared and I got Network Unreachable for any attempt to use the network.

I manually tried using "ifconfig eno16777736 10.42.43.239/23" followed by "route add 0.0.0.0/0 gw 10.42.42.1

And this is my result. I am using the 64 bit linux VM using a 3.x kernel (my selection in VMWare Workstation), I have just not run into this kind of trouble before.

Might I have a setting messed up that is giving rescuecd issues?

Did you stop Networkmanager ?

If you want a manual configuration stop the NetworkManager.
To avoid Networkmanager restart with other Networkservices like ssh remove it from the dafault runlevel.

You can also use NetworkManager and edit the settings in Networkmanager style.

Ahhhh, so that is what is fighting with me.. OK.. I will try that. Thank you!

For a brief moment, I had success and it reverted back to broken, so I bet NM caught up with me and restored what it thought was needed. ;-)

(BTW: This is solved, that did the trick.. not sure if there is a formal way to mark threads solved..)
