Default Bug#573624: more info

Indeed, I would preferred to use reportbug, but the system cannot be
conected to the internet (whether wirelis or wired).

The output of: "apt-cache show firmware-linux" is found in:
firmware-linux.txt
The output of: "apt-cache show firmware-linux-free" is found in:
firmware-linux-free.txt
The output of: "apt-cache show firmware-linux-nonfree" is found in:
firmware-linux-nonfree.txt
The output of: "apt-cache show firmware-iwlwifi" is found in:
firmware-iwlwifi.txt
The output of ip address show is found in: ip_address_show.txt
The output of "cat proc/devices" (as requested /proc/dev does not exist)
is in: cat__proc_devices.txt
The output of "cat /etc/network/interfaces"is found in:
cat__etc_network_interfaces.txt

Thanks very much for your (quick!) response. Gerber van der Graaf

reportbug can save the report to a file.

I meant /proc/net/dev, but never mind.

wlan0 is present but not running. What happens when you run 'ifconfig
wlan0 up' (include the kernel log messages for this)? What tool(s) are
you trying to use to configure it? What messages do they show or log?

Ben.

Running 'ifconfig wlan0 up' gives: 'wlan: ERROR while getting interface
flags: no such device'. Examining dmesg after this does not give any
output concerning wlan. Let me know if you need some more logging
messages and, if so, where I can find it.

I tried to set-up a connection with network-admin, but there is no
'Connections' tabulator.

I attach the output of /proc/net/dev here.

Running 'ifconfig wlan0 up' gives: 'wlan: ERROR while getting interface
flags: no such device'. Examining dmesg after this does not give any
output concerning wlan. Let me know if you need some more logging
messages and, if so, where I can find it.

I tried to set-up a connection with network-admin, but there is no
'Connections' tabulator.

I attach the output of /proc/net/dev here.

This is nonsense. The files you have sent clearly show that the wlan0
device does exist. It sounds like you typed 'ifconfig wlan up' which is
the wrong name.

So do you still have a problem with the wireless interface, or was this
bug report a mistake?

I say we take off; nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Unfortunately wlan0 still is not active and /proc/net/dev shows the same
output as I have sent before: only 0's at all fields. The
file /proc/net/dev does not show any activity of wlan0 and eth0 device,
even after invoking "ifconfig wlan0 up". Then, only the WIFI led turns
on, further nothing. Maybe the problem might be traced down by the last
line of the dmesg I already sent you before:
[ 90.241294] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready

Quite cumbersome this system does not connect to the internet from the
Debian-Live OS (self build with DH scripts). This keeps me from
installing Debian on this computer. So each time I have to read/send
mails I will have to reboot into Ubuntu using kernel 2.6.31. (Not a pun
intended

Thanks very much for your assistance. I appreciate this very much.
Gerber

No, you will *always* see this message when a wireless device is
initialised because it must be associated with an AP or ad-hoc network
before it can send/receive data.

How are you trying to configure the wireless network?
