When I enable DHCP in rc.conf, my little Netgear router gives an IP address to my Arch Linux machine - and also supplies the DNS value. When I try to manually set things, it seems my DNS values are not working.
My AL box can ping itself, at both 127.0.0.1 and 192.168.0.99. It can ping my Windows box at 192.168.0.23. It can also ping my netgear router at 192.168.0.1.
I tried putting "alias eth0 pcnet32" in my modules.conf, and now it generated a warning during bootup, something about modules.conf having a newer timestamp than a kernel lib.
I added my ISP's DNS address to my resolv.conf:
I'm not sure how to add the second DNS address.
I'm actually running Arch Linux inside VMWare4, and documenting all the steps it takes to get AL running inside VM4, so other people can try it out easily. A blind-leading-the-blind type guide.
I fixed it.
I need to change:
in my rc.conf file.
Well I'll be sure to put that in my How-To.
