Re: no internet

Perhaps this link will give you some clues. I use a huawei usb modem with MXlinux and that distro uses the usbnet + cdc_ether drivers. Always hooks up for me with MXlinux 17.

pkg update and upgrade hangup (SOLVED)

Hey there,
After a fresh install of 10.1, i ran pkg update and pkg upgrade. This is the output from the upgrade hangup; pkg: cups-2.1.3_2 conflicts with cups-base-2.0.3_3 (installs files into the same place). Problematic file: /usr/local/bin/cancel So the upgrade did not finish. What to do ?
