Re: LM sous VirtualBox pas d'acces INTERNET (proxy entrepris

L'adresse que tu ping dois effectivement être google (c'est une IP publique), le fait que ta VM soit en mode NAT ou bridge n'a pas l'air de changer grand chose. Tout dépend de la façon dont le proxy est configuré ou plus exactement tout dépend de la façon dont le proxy authentifie les postes de ton ...

Re: Does Petra RC upgrade to the real thing?

I can tell you, on my computer, the LM 16 KDE RC is as good as a final. It can't get much better than it is. I'm really happy I went early this time. :D Happily running LinuxMint 15 KDE, but am interested in installing the new version 16 RC. Seems the final version will be quite 99% same as the RC.

Re: Can't access internet (DNS problem?)

yep, everything's fine here. Nevertheless, if you experiment again issue with DNS only (meaning every kind of ping works out, but google doesn't works in firefox saying Unknown host) then check around resolvconf.

Check /etc/resolv.conf
Debug tool : nslookup, or dig

Yes XDMCP has been removed from MDM. Consider X11 forwarding, VNC, or even NoMachine to access your remote system.

Add iwlwifi to modprobe 's blacklist : located in /etc/modprobe.d./blacklist.conf

Add this line :
blacklist iwlwifi.

Re: Where is my VPNC?

TIP : to figure out what files a package could have installed , run dpkg -L <package>.

So I figure out about vpnc there's a 'vpnc' executable file, but also 'pcf2vpnc' and cisco-decrypt. Don't know what for by the way.... Hope that's help.

Re: Where is my VPNC?

Hhi

I'll make the assuption you have installed vpnc package. This is a command line only package, don't really know if there's a GUI out there.

So, try this :

sudo vpnc

in a terminal window

Re: "Sorry, user .. is not allowed to execute ... as root"

Ajoute ton user au group sudo (qui n'existe pas sur ton système, voilà qui est bien curieux !), il suffit d'ajouter ceci à la fin de ton fichier /etc/group :

sudo:x:27:fred

Remplace fred par ton username bien entendu.

Et voilà c'est tout, ça devrait rouler tout seul.
