Which installers have you looked at?

Any familiarity with the Xebian Project??

It uses the Debian installer for a Sid install (I successfully installed it to metal the one time I tried). You can hit that code tab and see their configuration.

I tried getting a Sid build/iso from a Debian live-build setup. Someone else did the heavy lifting to set up a Debian stable system. But the build process would always fail. Maybe you can spot the tweak needed to get Sid to successfully build.

Hey PackRat, I also remember you from the BunsenLabs forums and what about the BL installer and do you think it will work for Vsido?

That's the Debian installer. In theory you should be able to build a Sid distro with the Debian live-build system, but me and another user couldn't get to work. But the Xebian team is using the Debian installer so we just didn't know the trick to make it work.

Fluxbox on dual monitors -

link to image

link to image

Wife has been working from home for about a year due to the plague. At her office, she uses dual monitors so went out and got a second monitor a couple months ago. Unfortunately, fluxbox does not support different workspaces on different monitors (that I'm aware of; if this can be done please share!). However, the toolbar and iconbar can span the monitors in a dual monitor setup:

Code: [Select]
Fluxbox Menu --> Configure --> Toolbar --> On Head --> All Heads.
Other than having to look to the right to see the clock and system tray not a whole lot of difference for me.

That is Mount Ararat; I think the view is from Armenia.

There are Samsung phone ,two Samsung tablets and an iPhone 8 plus several other items when the grand children are here, all have no problem

Are they connected to the wireless service provided by your cell phone service? That wifi is usually different from the wifi provided by your isp/ router. I have Verizon cell service that the phones and ipad use. The wireless on my router that the computers use, I set up myself; the isp is Atlantic Broadband.

I don't know why both won't work at the same time but if both are connected neither of them works, I have to take the WiFi card out to get the wired one to connect to the internet.

That sounds like a BIOS issue. How old is this computer, and what brand/model.

^ this; good question.

Gordon, I am assuming you have a physical router in your home and are set up something like:

Computer ---> Router ---> Modem ---> Internet.

Someone with a similar issue did not actually have the hardware, his isp only allowed the modem and controlled the rest.

That was nice of them.....not!

When you get your wired network back up and running, you can run this command from a terminal:

Code: [Select]
ip route | grep default
That will give results similar to:

Code: [Select]
default via dev wlan0
That ip address is your router/gateway. Don't actually post the results, but once you have that ip address and your wireless card recognized, it's straightforward to set up the wireless network. What brand is the modem? You can check their site for the model number and there should be a step-by-step How To. Or at least the operators manual.

My router is provided by SKY

So the router is owned by your internet provider? You may need to get with them about setting up a wireless connection.

I hashed out the wlp2s0 to get onto the net, although I don't know if I needed to

So you could set up a wireless network on your router?

Unless ceni is also depracated now. May need to go with NetworkManager and nm-applet.

@gordon - how many network cards do you have attached to this computer? You are showing both the older eth0 and newer enp2s15 designations in your /etc/network/interfaces file. Usually not done that way.

Post the current output of "lspci" and "ip addr".

Not sure what happened to you.

Should you go the reinstall route, get both network cards installed and connect with the wired ethernet. Boot the live image and see if lspci at least finds both cards. I don't know if the kernel will be new enough for the wifi card to work. If everything is working you can reinstall and the upgrade should get the newer kernel that will have support for your wifi.

That's the wifi card.
Does lspci no longer see your eternet card - this one

Code: [Select]
02:0f.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8110SC/8169SC Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10)
That wifi card may be messing you up - bad card or something.

1. Remove that wifi card and make sure the ethernet card is properly seated
2. Edit you /etc/network/interfaces file so that only the loopback interface remains. The file will look like:

Code: [Select]
# The loopback network interface
auto lo                         
iface lo inet loopback

3. Reboot (you may or may not have internet/network) and re-run ceni with the wired interface and see if you get your internet/networking back.

ip addr not even finding enp2s15 now

It only shows the loopback interface?

Does -

Code: [Select]
recognize the ethernet card being there?

If you remove the fenvi card, do you get your ethernet back? You may have a bad card messing everything up.
