Description lethalwp 2001-08-13 09:29:31 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010808

Description of problem:
using ifup eth0 tells me: "Check your cable" instead of using dhcp to
assing some ip

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.1.netconf to setup the interface
2.ifup it;  same problem at boot process

Additional info:

in the ifup script:
    echo -n $"Determining IP information for ${DEVICE}..."
#    if check_link_down ${DEVICE}; then
#       echo $" failed; no link present.  Check cable?"
#       ip link set down ${DEVICE} >/dev/null 2>&1
#       exit 1
#    fi

i had to remark those to make it work
else i had "check the cable"
using 8139too module, on a home-compiled 2.4.6 of the kernel.org
