[Debian Woody] Network down after compiling new kernel
perhaps this is a newbie-question, but I have been using Linux for a short time.
In Debian 3.0 r2 I downloaded the kernel-sources for kernel 2.6.7 and made the configuration via 'make menuconfig' for my specific hardware and requirements.
After 'make clean bzImage modules modules_install' I copied the new kernel-image to the /boot - folder, added the new kernel to /etc/lilo.conf and installed the new boot-configuration via '/sbin/lilo -C /etc/lilo.conf'
When I start the new kernel, my two network-devices (a NIC with rtl8139-chipset and a wlan-card with a prism2.5-chipset) are found by the drivers.
By running the command 'ifconfig' I can only see the loopback-device up and running.
When starting the old kernel 2.4.18, the eth0-device is started automatically and gets the configuration via DHCP.
But with the new kernel no device is set up at boot-time automatically.
Is there any config-file I have forgotten to change?
With ifconfig I can manually set up the device eth0, but after booting up the system the device is down
