Novel Linux Desktop 9
Hi Friends,
Its been long time after my last post. Now got some free time from busy office schedule. Novel Linux Desktop (NLD) is new linux distro targettted for coprporate users. I tried it in our office and found that it has good mix of power and flexibility. It has everything a desktop user will need. With YAST2, the configuration was very easy. Hardware detection the worst part of the linux is made very simple in this distribution(I was surprised to see whne we plug our flash ram into USB port is was automatically detected and files were show in browser instataneously). I am die hard fan of Red Hat but now I am also thinking of using it. So my desktop will now have RH9, NLD and Windows XP. I will advice linux users and linux newbies to give try to this distro.

C code to find out network interfaces and mac address in Redhat Linux
Saturday, January 15, 2005
i needed mac address of network interface in linux for my program. Many people advised me to look into the code of ifconfig. But is is very vast i was finding spme small function that will do my work. Previously I was reading some files in /proc file system to get this id, but in Redhat linux 9.0 I was not able to find the interface file. So I searched the internet and here is the code


using namespace std;

int main()
struct ifreq ifr;
struct if_nameindex* if_name;
unsigned char* mac;
int sd;
int i = 0;

/* get socket descriptor */
if(sd == -1)
{ cerr << "Socket Error" << endl; exit(1);}

/* get all network interface names */
if_name = if_nameindex();

while( (if_name[i].if_index != 0) && (if_name[i].if_name != NULL) )
/* write the name of the interface to the ifreq struct */
memcpy(&ifr.ifr_name, if_name[i].if_name, IFNAMSIZ);

/* get hardware address */
if (ioctl(sd, SIOCGIFHWADDR, &ifr) < 0)
{ cerr << "ioctl Error: SIOCGIFHWADDR" << endl; exit(1); }

mac = (unsigned char*) &ifr.ifr_hwaddr.sa_data;

/cout << if_name[i].if_name << endl;

/* display MAC */
printf("%02X:%02X:%02X:%02X:%02X:%02Xn", mac[0],mac[1],mac[2],mac[3],mac[4],mac[5]);

/* free memory allocated by if_nameindex() */
return 0;
