Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 109703
Error in /sbin/ifup
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:40:21 EDT
Description of problem:
When booting up, at the "Bringing up interface eth0" point an
error is produced ... something along the lines:
"Failed - no link - check cable?"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from standard Fedora v. 1 install
eth0 can be brought up by commenting out lines 274-278
What network adapter?
I also encountered this problem. My network card (from hwconf):
desc: "3Com Corporation|3c900B-TPO [Etherlink XL TPO]"
I discussed this on linux.redhat:
I was helped in the diagnosis. The ultimate explanation was that a
program called mii-tool was not working right with my ethernet driver.
Yes, I also have a 3C900B-TPO.
Couldn't quite follow everything in the aforementioned linux.redhat
thread, but commenting out lines 274-278 does get the connection up
and running. Thanks!
