View Full Version : eth0 missing after update to FC2
21st May 2004, 10:46 AM
I was updating my FC 1 to FC 2 on my HP Omnibook 6100. After finishing the update and rebooting there was no /dev/eth0 any longer. When I type "ifconfig -a" I can only see the loopback adapter. Before updating the system to fc 2 network was working fine, after the update the device eth0 was lost. What can I do to get back my eth0 device??

Try altering the order the services are started. Some people have found that the NIC does not work if it is started after ACPI. Also note that the networking service should be started AFTER PCMCIA as you are using a laptop.

Full details of the boot process can be found at the following URL:
If you look at the directory /etc/rc.d there are directories for each runlevel, with the graphical environment running in runlevel 5. The scripts inside the directory run in numerical order so all you need to do is change the number for 'network' to one lower than that used for PCMCIA and ACPI.
