Description William Johnson 2001-08-05 18:41:39 UTC
Description of Problem:
On booting when attempting to activate eth0 it times out on my network
How Reproducible:

Does it from home on my cable modem, no problem on my work machine.

Actual Results:

ifup fails.

Expected Results:

link up on my machine...

Additional Information:

Increasing the sleep value in network-functions (check_link_down routine)
fixes the problem.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-05 20:40:51 UTC
Fixed in 6.11-1.

Comment 2 Alejandro Gonzalez Hernandez - Imoq 2001-08-07 02:26:04 UTC
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.

Comment 3 William Johnson 2001-08-07 13:15:29 UTC
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.,

Comment 4 Alejandro Gonzalez Hernandez - Imoq 2001-08-07 20:31:32 UTC
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 
linux now.

I am waiting for the rawhide packages.

I also tried

rpm -e pump

and no luck, still the same problems.

Thanks for your suggestions.
