I've done this without success early in the troubleshooting,
unfortunately it did not work even after i made a few guess changes to
/etc/network/interfaces, like commenting out the hostname line.
Another weird thing is when i boot with or without the cable line
plugged in the init process stalls at "configuring network
interfaces..." for about 40 seconds, then everything boots fine. As i
recall this was only after installing etherconf for the first time; or
was it after building the new kernel image with support for the realtek
NICs? Anyway, it's not much of a problem at all, what's 40 seconds? But
mayhaps it's an indication of something that could give me more ideas.
