Description Joshua J. Drake 2001-08-16 15:49:56 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98)

Description of problem:
When booting I am unable to get lo and eth0 up.  The lo interface shows up 
but the system does not setup a route for it.  

I am using a custom kernel so this may be the problem.

I added some Networking options to the custom kernel and it changed the 
behavior.  Now lo works fine but I am unable to get an IP on eth0 using 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1a. boot machine w/o netlink socket in the kernel


1b. boot machine w/netlink socket in the kernel

Actual Results:  In 1a lo came up w/o a route and eth0 came up fine.  
In 1b lo came up fine and eth0 cannot get IP using pump.

Expected Results:  Both interfaces should have came up fine.

Additional info:

Like I said, I am using a custom kernel.  Its version 2.4.8 and it is 
tuned to my hardware..

I have enabled both and pump still fails to get an IP.  When attempting to do so
it says "Operation failed."
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-20 00:28:52 EDT
Oh, that's a different issue. That will be fixed in initscripts-6.21-1; in the
meantime, use dhcpcd.
