Network connection worked on my IBM ThinkPAd but did not work on Dave Bauer's EEPC.

With latest snapshot I mean: Soas1-200903232259.iso 23-Mar-2009 19:12 432M

@caroline: did you try that one? The eeepc issue might be something else - a driver issue.

I tested on: http://download.sugarlabs.org/soas/snapshots/2/Soas2-200905241902.iso

Isn't the March 23rd snapshot pretty old?

This occurs when using a boot helper with an older kernel version than on the snapshot itself. I'm not sure, why this prevents network from working, but it can be fixed if you create your own boot helper using the script in our SoaS GIT repo:

http://git.sugarlabs.org/projects/soas/repos/mainline/blobs/master/boot-helper-creator.sh

And here's how to call it: sh boot-helper-creator.sh Soas2-200905311344.iso

For final releases, we'll of course provide the boot helpers, so that this is only the recommended solution for snapshots!

Should I be able to do this from my mac terminal?

Replying to CarolineM:

Very unlikely Mac OS X is a BSD compliant unix (called Darwin) there are many similarities, but also many differences with GNU linux – I'm sure I've used a wrong name somewhere and offended a whole generation, apologies i so ;-)
