    eth0 not working

    Hi guys, new to Kali linux. Booting from USB.

    When I use the ifconfig command, eth0 does not show up. I get lo and wlan0, but no eth0.

    I connected an ethernet cable, and still no interface showing up for ethernet so the only way I can actually connect to the internet right now is with WiFi.

    Anybody know how to solve this problem?

    Post output of : lspci -v

    Look for the ethernet interface and see the driver used by kernel.

    Package linux-headers-generic is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package 'linux-headers-generic' has no installation candidate

    For the first step try:

    Code:
    apt-get install -y linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    if you get any problems installing the headers, please add these entries to your sources.list file:

    Code:
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib
    then execute the following command:

    Code:
    apt-get update
    once you have the headers installed, try to install the latest version of compat-drivers from here

    i can't get my eth0 working on the kali side of my macbook pro. here are the outputs:
    EDIT~ here is my ifconfig output (if needed):

    Kernel driver in use: tg3


    i am assuming i don't have this driver installed. so I found it here (for the BCM57765): http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethe...me_desktop.php

    I am attempting to install this according to the directions given above, but without success. :/

    i was also trying to modify the kali instructions for the nvidia driver as well: http://docs.kali.org/general-use/ins...-on-kali-linux

    but now I am just all messed up. Can someone point me in the right direction? I have the driver sitting on my desktop

    I was trying to use:


    apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic linux-headers-`uname -r`
    wget http://linuxwireless.org/download/co...-03-pc.tar.bz2
    tar jxf compat-wireless-2012-07-03-pc.tar.bz2
    cd compat-wireless-2012-07-03-pc
    ./scripts/driver-select alx
    make
    make install
    modprobe alx
    reboot

    but it wasn't/isn't working for me sorry for my "noob-ness"
