Ethernet works in Live mode but not in Installed mode

Ethernet works in Live mode but not in Installed mode

Subject says it all: No ethernet problems in live mode, but ethernet does not work at all in installed mode.

I've tried 'ifconfig eth0 up' - to no avail!

Any suggestions would be appreciated

The following worked for me (solution from another thread in these forums)


edit /etc/network/interfaces & add the lines

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Then reboot & it works!! (at least for me)
I'm using Elive 1.9.14 unstable

I'm suffering from the same problem. Adding the above mentioned lines merely caused my install to hopelessly hang on reboot. I'm using a one year old HP Media Center PC with a 64 bit AMD processor.

My installation is on an old HP Pavilion 7940 with 256 kB ram and a 1.0 gHz Intel Pentium III CPU (as reported by 'cpuinfo').

Again, I'm using Elive 1.9.14 unstable




Do the lines you added follow (with no blank lines) the ones already in 'interfaces'? And do they start in column 1? Sometimes things like that can be important.

Here's what my file looks like:

[me ~]$ cat /proc/version
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
auto lo
# added 1 Nov jad
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
[me ~]$




BY-the-way, I couldn't get the install to put '/home' on a separate partition. By any chance have you been successful doing that? I've posted this problem in another forum.

FOr some reason the 'cut-and-paste' deleted the '#' at the beginning of comment lines and didn't put in some of the newlines.

sorry

I had this problem on my old dell latitude laptop using pcmcia card. My solution was to delete the /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules file and reboot. The file was regenerated with no problems since.
