Description of Problem:
On booting when attempting to activate eth0 it times out on my network
Does it from home on my cable modem, no problem on my work machine.
link up on my machine...
Increasing the sleep value in network-functions (check_link_down routine)
fixes the problem.
Fixed in 6.11-1.
I have exactly the same error with my cablemodem.
Increasing the sleep value doesn't make a difference (I even put "sleep 180").
I am waiting for the new package to show up in rawhide, to see if it fixes the
problem for me.
Does your cable modem have a "PC" light? if it's lit, you may want to just use
dhcpcd by itself, just to make sure that you can get an IP address etc.,
Yes, my modem has the PC light, and it gets on. Actually, right now I am using
windows 2000 (shame on me) with the same configuration, I used Seawolf with no
problems, but I upgraded to roswell, and I have no internet connection from
I am waiting for the rawhide packages.
I also tried
rpm -e pump
and no luck, still the same problems.
Thanks for your suggestions.
