    Default BT3 and VMware - drive sharing & dhcp issues

    hi

    This has probably ben asked before but;

    1. i have booted BT3 into VMWare Workstation, should i be able to see sda1 of mu laptop?

    and

    2. when i run dhcpd eth0 it says the file in /etc/dhcpd.conf so i created a file called, dhcpd.conf and put it into /etc but don't know what to put in the text file, any ideas?

    Thanks

    1) No, if windows is your host it will need sharing and i believe there are options to change in VMware too

    2) Not a clue

    You can configure drive sharing in vmware - there was a thread about this very recently, which I'm sure you'll find quite easily.


    What do you mean by "when i run dhcpd eth0 it says the file in /etc/dhcpd.conf" ?

    If you mean it is telling you it already exists, you can look up the pid of the process (ps -A) and kill it.
    If you cannot work out the pid, just use "killall dhcpcd" and then re-run dhcpcd.
    (Although I would suspect that vmware has already assigned an IP)


    By the way - please use descriptive thread titles, as per the forum rules

    firstly sorry about the thread title, my bad!

    i'll have a look at the vmware sharing thread! thanks!

    lastly; when i run dhcpd eth0, i get the following error:

    can't open /etc/dhcpd.conf. No such file or directory

    So if i create a file called dhcpd.conf and place it in /etc i just don't know what to put into that file?

    a work around for me is manually assigning a IP address and GW.

    Thanks

    if i type ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.109/24 i get the following error:

    SIOCSIFNETMASK: cannot assign requested address

    although i noticed one thing while looking at vmware, down the bottom right hand corner of vmware where you get the little icons, floppy, cd-rom etc, the one that looks like the network card has a red X next to it. I have checked ipconfig on the laptop and it seems to have an ip address for the vm adapter, but if i right click that icon and select "connect" it says:

    failed to connect to virtual device Ethernet0

    any ideas?
