eth0: link down problem
As a newbie on linux I am pretty proud that I already have linux running, apache, samba, dhcp are all up.. Yet I now came accross something that I do not understand.
I had everything running and now, suddenly the ethernet cad is not working anymore
What I notice:
- When I plug in the cable, there is no light turning on (nor on the linux server, nor on the hub connected to it)
- in the system log I see:
> eth0: Realtek rtl8139 `....
> eth0: identified ....
> 8139cp: 10/100 pci ethernet driver 1.2
> eth0: Link down
Any suggestions ?
Can I just remove and 'reinstall' the network drivers ? How ?
Please help, I am totally stuck here...
