Re: Network help for woody/2.4 needed

Thanks all,
I thought I tried that but must have changed something else at the same time.

auto lo eth0
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp

This works fine. You saved me a bunch of time.

I seem to have everything working okay but can't seem to get eth0 to come up automatically on boot. Everything worked fine with 2.2.20 kernel but now with 2.4.18-k6 it won't start without running ifup eth0. I'd really like to get this working the Debian way without hacks or at least understand what is going on.

Here is relevant dmesg, module, and /etc/network/interfaces info. I did play around with the interfaces file, looked at the man pages etc. with no luck. Any help is appreciated.

# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)

# The loopback interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The first network card - this entry was created during the Debian installation
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Needs a line 'auto eth0' in there to make the interface come up
