No, that's weird. In Network settings, there should now be 3 entries: eth0 (sungem), eth1 (pegasus) and loopback (internal). Ensure that both eth1 and loopback are enabled (check the boxes).
boot_wb you are such a nice person. What would I do without your help.
I slowly get the feeling that I am too stupid to handle MOS. I like this OS so much but it seems to me that you must be a specialist to handle it. There is something totally weird with my system.
I overlooked the following post.caver99
on a pc download and burn ubuntu for mac and see if the network works on it as its free and only uses a cd.
@caver99: I am sorry for overlooking it. Thank you very much.
I tried this last night. And allthough I could not make the "Lubuntu" (I think this is the PowerPC Ubuntu?) LIVE CD boot properly something very interesting happened during my experiments.
I looked into my router configuration:
1. the mac mini was displayed as client (hostname: lubuntu) connected to the mac mini etthernet port.
2. the mac mini was displayed as a client (hostname: lubuntu) connected to the Belkin
Than I tried again with MOS Boot CD:
1. connected to mac mini ethernet port -> no client dispayed in router configuration
2. connected to Belkin -> no client displayed in router configuration
The same happens with my installed MOS version.
Strange things to happen:
1. I can not ping localhost, allthough the loopback is enabled and localhost is defined in the host prefs.
2. With the Belkin I tried both ways (dhcp and static ip) but the router does not notice any connection. I deactivated the sungem_eth.device.
Oh man, feeling really stupid at this point and I don't know how to go on. Does anyone have an idea?
