1  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Help: Only root can use internet on: July 20, 2007, 19:17:12 PM
Hello and thank you for your detailed suggestions, Talisien!!!!

I did what you suggested but, unfortunately, that did not solve the problem  Undecided  As the normal user I can do


(or use any other IP address of the form aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd) with success, but if I try

 ping www.anywhere.xyz

(for example www.heise.de) it fails ("unknown host www.anywhere.xyz" as I recall). But if I then do

 sudo ping www.anywhere.xyz

I have success  Shocked  The same goes for running the links text-browser or also for firefox: www-pages can only be called up when running the programs with sudo, but when run as the normal user pages can only be accessed when the IP address is given as the URL.

So actually everything works perfectly, but only for the root user (that is, for sudo executions). And if I know the IP address, then everything also works for the normal user.

I had hopes that the rp-pppoe.so entry in pppoe.conf file would do the trick, but it was in vain. Any other suggestions  Huh?

I have also tried running the adsl-setup script several times but the result is always the same.

Since you are able to access the internet as an ordinary user using IP numbers the problem seems to be with DNS permissions...

Is your user a member of the dialout group?
Thanks for the reply. As I also supposed, the problem seems to be with DNS permissions. My user is a member of the dialout group. I downloaded the "links" program (so the package manager works) and am using it now to write this post (I started it with "sudo links"). As I stated: the root user can ping addresses such as www.whatever.xxx so I think everything has been configured correctly except for the normal user and his permissions. So what do I change to permit my normal user to use the DNS services?

This problem has not happened on any of my other installed Linux distros that I can currently use (Ubuntu, PCLinuxOS, KateOS, etc). So I know that the ADSL modem and the network card can work together without any special configuration work (after all, I got them to work together in these other distros without having to do much of anything other than to run their network or pppoe setup scripts).

Thanks again for the reply,

I posted this in the German forum but there does not seem to be much action over there. Here is my problem:

I have a DSL modem that is connected to my ethernet card. After installing Pardus 2007.2 I ran (as root user) adsl-setup. No problems occurred and I could then (as root) ping internet addresses such as www.heise.de without any problem. When I try to ping as my normal user I get nothing. When I ping an IP address as the normal user, it works! As a result I cannot use Firefox unless I know the IP address of the site I wish to visit!!

I am writing this from another Linux distro that I happen to have on my computer. I also tried to duplicate in Pardus the various configuration files (in /etc/ppp) that this distro uses but that did not change anything. My guess is that some sort of permissions need to be set somewhere, but I am not expert enough to find the solution.

Please help me as Pardus seems to be an otherwise excellent distro that I would like to use regularly.

Thanks in advance,

5  International Pardus Users / German / [gelöst]DSL: nur root ?!? on: July 18, 2007, 16:23:31 PM
Ich habe mit "sudo adsl-setup" meine DSL-Verbindung eingerichtet. Ich baue eine Verbindung mit "sudo adsl-start" auf und bekomme eine Erfolgsmeldung. Nur kann ich als Otto Normaluser nichts damit machen: Firefox kann keine WWW-Seiten finden, ping tut auch nichts. Als root aber kann ich pingen (und wahrscheinlich surfen -- ich habe das aber wegen Sicherheitsrisikos nicht probiert).

Mit dem Net Manager habe ich meine NIC-Karte eingerichtet. Aber dann sagt er (nachdem ich das Kästchen anklicke), dass er keine Adresse für die Karte bekommt. Ich habe DHCP aktiviert und Default und Automatic (für DNS) probiert.

Ich benutze Alice-DSL mit einem DSL-modem. Die Verbindung ist zwischen meiner NIC-Karte und dem Modem.

Kann jemand mir helfen Huh?
