Once more SiS 900 Ethernet...


Its been a week or two ago when I posted a mail about my problems with my
SiS 900 Ethernet card. Ill repeat them with a view words here:
When booting Linux, the system always stops when saying

Configuring network interfaces: done

(yes, the "done" is here). The same time the following kernel message is

eth0: Media Link Off
eth0: Media Link On 100mbps full-duplex

It stops for about a minute and carries on with the network working.

I got several answers helping come over the problem, but not solving them;
now i just always push "CTRL-C" when the system stops. Some said that its
because there is no network cable connected, but thats not true, it stopt with a
cable connected as well.

Now i found out something interesting (i dont know why i didnt see that
earlier...what a shame!). There is another interface up, called dummy0! Ive never
seen that before...might that be the reason for the troubles??? Here is the
"ifconfig" output:

dummy0  Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:00:00:00:00:00
            UP BROADCAST RUNNING NOARP MTU:1500 Metric:1
            RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
            TX packets:2 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
            collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
            RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:684 (684.0 b)

I hope you can help me, people start askin' "what the hell are ya doin'?"
and i always have to tell them lies...not the best way to demonstrate the power
of (Debian) Linux...

Wenn auch die Sicherheit vor den Menschen bis zu einem gewissen Grade 
eintritt durch eine bestimmte Macht, Störungen zu beseitigen, und 
durch Reichtum, so entspringt doch die reinste Sicherheit aus der 
Ruhe und dem Rückzug aus der Masse. (Epikur)
