Re: problems with networking on boot - ?solved?
Ok - I have solved the problem, but not the reason for it. It seems
there are TWO versions of 'ifconfig' on my system.
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 53516 Jun 27 22:09 /sbin/ifconfig
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 27736 Oct 24 10:29 /usr/bin/ifconfig
>From dpkg -S I determined that /sbin/ifconfig is from the net-tools
package and the /usr/bin/ifconfig is from the inetutils-tools package.
Renaming /usr/bin/ifconfig to /usr/ifconfig-old solves the problem.
The reason I chose /usr/bin/ifconfig to rename is that according to
'apt-cache policy' it only exists in unstable. How I got it installed
at this point is unclear. It may have been during an aptitude
'browsing' session since the description for the package is vague but
'Base utilities for network administration.
