I managed to get 12.0.4 Cloud Server with MAAS installed. I have no GUI, and I like it that way I am learning a lot.
But now I'm running into several issues. I want to be able to make my IP static but that's just part of the issue, following the help document doesn't help. I try to go to
etc/network/interfaces and it says it doesn't exist. I have made it as far as
etc/network but it wont go to interfaces, even though
ls shows it is there.
Now, how do I do multiple lines of something? Right now I'm with the
ethtool it says to do this: I want to be clear, I actually have
Changes made with the ethtool command are temporary and will be lost after a reboot. If you would like to retain settings, simply add the desired ethtool command to a pre-up statement in the interface configuration file /etc/network/interfaces. The following is an example of how the interface identified as eth0 could be permanently configured with a port speed of 1000Mb/s running in full duplex mode. auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static pre-up /sbin/ethtool -s eth0 speed 1000 duplex full
What does that mean pre-up statement? When I try to type this in, it never works
auto eth0 retuns me with an error saying
no command auto found. This is something similar to what I have to do to get static going.
I just can't seem to find anything on this subject matter anywhere. Even like the most basics of Linux help.
