I coming back to Linux after many years on Mac and Windows.
I am trying to install MCE on a Lenovo X201 laptop. I downloaded the dvd image and started the installation of Linux MCE. I got Kubuntu 8.10 installed. Then when I wnated to install MCE I discovered that I do not have a connection to my router. I digged on the internet for a solution. I edited my /etc/network interfaces file and now it looks like this:
iface l0 inet loopback
iface pan0 inet dhcp
I also made an edit on /etc/resolv.conf and now it looks like this:
### Hetzner Online AG installimage
Another edit I made was on /etc/dhcp3/dhcpclient.conf: the line
#prepend domain-name-servers 192.168.2.254;
is exactly as in the quote.
I ran sudo service networking restart and the ping to 192.168.2.254 fails successfully.
