SDB:Replacing Your ADSL Configuration

Şuraya atla: kullan, ara

Version: 8.0


You want to replace your ADSL configuration with a new one.


  1. Start your SuSE Linux system and login as a normal user.
  2. Open a terminal emulation like, for example, konsole in KDE (icon of monitor with a shell).
  3. Enter the command "su -".
  4. Enter the root password when prompted to do so. Note that no output (asterisks or similar) is displayed on the screen while you enter the password.
  5. Execute the command "rm /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-dsl*".
  6. Once that the device configuration is deleted, use the following command to delete your provider's configuration:
    "rm /etc/sysconfig/network/providers/*"
  7. Proceed to configure anew your Internet connection by way of YaST.


If you have configured additional connections via ISDN and/or analog modem, too, the step number 6 would also delete their provider configuration. To avoid this, delete separately each provider file(s) in the directory "/etc/sysconfig/network/providers".

You want to delete the ADSL configuration, but YaST2 does not allow you to do this.


The configuration has to be deleted manually.

To do this, start the konsole (monitor with shell in the quick start bar).

If you are a normal user, login as root in the konsole by entering:

su -

Then enter the root password when prompted to do so.

Enter the following commands:

rm /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-dsl*

rm /etc/sysconfig/network/providers/dsl-provider*

By doing this, all the existing ADSL providers will be deleted.

If you have configured several providers but you only want to delete one of them, replace the asterisk at the end of the command with a number.

When doing so, make sure that the count starts with zero, i.e., that the fist provider is configured in the file dsl-provider0. <keyword>80,dsl,manually,delete,provider,new,completely,adsl,replace</keyword>
