It looks like the ifupdown package was removed during the upgrade.
Reinstall it and the network should come back after "ifup eth0".
Sven, thanks, cannot fetch over the network, but found ifupdown deb
file on a Squeeze CD. I think it's on an XFCE install CD (Squeeze),
Method 1: But Plugging in a USB CD-ROM isn't recognised on this (not
quite working) Squeeze installation, so cannot copy the ifupdown deb
onto the machine to install it ifupdown. (This may be a symptom of
USB problems; the documentation regarding this upgrade sequence warned
Method 2: Also found a Squeeze XFCE boot CD, which I have managed to
boot from and, in 'Rescue' mode, have assembled the RAID1 and have a
shell in my incomplete Squeeze root filesystem. But I cannot seem to
change directory to the installation CD; I had hoped to copy the
ifupdown-xxx.deb file to the root, /, on the partially-working Squeeze
system, and then reboot the partially-working Squeeze and simply
install ifupdown from /. But I cannot see or browse the filesystem on
the XFCE installation CD. From this shell, I cannot seem to run mc,
either. ls does list the top level directories that I'd expect to
see, so I do seem to be running the shell in the correct filesystem.
Method 3: There doesn't seem to be any trace of the Lenny ifupdown (in
case that might be re-installable) on the machine - for example,
/var/cache/apt is empty.
In summary, I've 2 CDs with ifupdown.deb on; the partial-Squeeze
system doesn't see a USB CD-ROM, but booting from an XFCE install CD
works, and I can run a rescue shell. Is there some way I might copy
ifupdown.deb from that onto the partial-Squeeze filesystem?
