I tried to upgrade the image today, but it failed (generated an unbootable image) so I reverted to the previous one - could that have anything to do with it?

<Mexandrew>
Good afternoon, everyone. I am having some issues with Ubuntu 12.04, recently updated. This computer is an LTSP server that used to have 2 Ethernet interfaces. eth0 being the integrated Gigabit Ethernet, and eth1 being a PCI 10/100 card. eth0 was connected to a network hub where all the clients are connected, while eth1 was connected to the main network for internet access and management through RDP. The issue is that recently, if you plugged both ether
23:11
net cables at the same time, you'd lose internet access and the thin clients would not boot.
23:11
Now, eth1 wasn't properly detecting when you plugged in the cable after the HD drives were replaced, so it was removed, and a USB WIFI dongle was added. However, if I plug a cable into eth0, I still lose internet access from the wifi.
23:11
(Accept my apology if this isn't the right place to ask.)
23:18
<championofcyrodi>
Mexandrew: check your routing tables
23:20
<vagrantc>
Mexandrew: that sounds like you might need to configure network manager

Mexandrew: you probably need to configure /etc/network/interfaces so that network-manager doesn't take control of the interfaces that you have a static configuration for
23:25
<Mexandrew>
vagrantc: What should I type in there to achieve that? (Again, I apologize for my lack of knowledge, I am not that experienced and last time I installed this ltsp server it didn't give me this sort of trouble. Happens with the liveCD, even)

23:31
<Mexandrew>
I've disabled Network Manager for eth0 through its .conf file
23:32
Looking up how to set a static IP address through /etc/network/interfaces
23:33mealstrom has joined IRC (mealstrom!~Thunderbi@109.86.153.34)
23:34
<vagrantc>
if your eth1 was just having troubles with network manager, and not actually broken, you could probably leave that managed in network-manager and just specify the static ip for eth0
23:34
or just set both up in interfaces, and remove network-manager entirely...
23:35
<Mexandrew>
Oh, I removed that card, and replaced it with the wifi dongle, which is managed. Left it that way, specifying that eth0 is to be unmanaged.
23:36
Now I just gotta find out if the manual setup worked...
23:36
<vagrantc>
what ip addresses?
23:36
iface eth0 inet static
23:37
address 192.168.67.1
23:37
netmask 255.255.255.0
23:37
would be the default for ltsp ... although i think ubuntu still uses 192.168.0.254 or something
23:37
oh, and "auto etho"
23:38
<Mexandrew>
iface eth0 inet static
23:38
address 192.168.75.1
23:38
gateway 192.168.75.1
23:38
netmask 255.255.255.0
23:38
network 192.168.75.0
23:38
broadcast 192.168.75.255
23:38
Do I need the auto eth0 line?
23:38
<vagrantc>
you probably don't want the gateway ... your gateway is through wireless, isn't it?
23:38
having two "default routes" is going to cause many headaches
23:39
i'd also leave out broadcast and network
23:39
"auto eth0" is definitely needed if you want the interface to come up automatically ... although "allow-hotplug eth0" can also work in some cases.
23:39
<Mexandrew>
Gotcha. And yes, I suppose I don't need those. Now that I think about it...
23:40
PERHAPS setting the gateway in network managed for that connection is what has been killing it all this time, though, the issue still happenbed with the system before I removed the working installation and replaced it with this fresh install on a RAID array
23:41
<vagrantc>
also, specifying itself as the default gateway doesn't really work :)
23:43
<Mexandrew>
Hadn't had problems with it before, then again, I installed this system two years ago for the first time, fixed it two months ago before the HD died and I had to replace it with the last working install
23:43
BRB, rebooting, lost network manager
23:44
<vagrantc>
you may have been relying on bugs that were since fixed

<Mexandrew>
I've returned. On Network Manager, seems I have to specify a gateway
23:48
vagrantc, as far as I remember, setting itself as a gateway has worked so far without trouble.
23:48syrius has joined IRC (syrius!~syrius@thunder.stormtek.net)
23:48
<Mexandrew>
There, set it without a gateway. Testing
23:49
Seems connection is still alive, checking thin clients
23:51
<vagrantc>
maybe it has some special meaning when specified as a gateway to itself ...

<Mexandrew>
Probably the meaning of killing internet, heh... Upon using network manager, setting up the static IPv4 address without a gateway, it worked
23:57
Which means, I am quite retarded, and you deserve all my kudos.
23:58
vagrantc, Thank you so much for your help. It's greatly appreciated, since I built this LTSP system practically on a dare, knowing nothing about LTSP and very, very little about Linux back then.
