I am currently having problems connecting my machine to my university network. When I boot up, the messages in the network section say:

lo - done
ctc0 - failed
ppp - manual

when all is loaded, I try to get smbclient to connect to the network (as my neighbour next door using mandrake does) and I get 'not enough \ characters in service'

I guess that ctc0 is the problem, but I have no idea how to fix it sad.gif I have tried installing all the network components from my install CDs, but nothing changes.

I'm currently running SuSE 8.2 pro with KDE 3.1 on a amd k62-500/384mb ram/20gb HDD (half of which is win98). Linux has recognised my network card.


If anyone could shed any light on this I'd be most grateful!

Cheers

unless you have an IBM S/390, there should be nothing trying to start as ctc0 ... the network device you need is eth0, not ctc0....

I would try the install again...
