The source isn't with me this week. While trying to get Ati's drivers to work (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=457707
) I did do some updating from within aptitude. So now I am running sarge, with more and more packages coming from etch.
Well somehow the dhcp-client broke. I've tried purging it, reinsatlling it, didn't help
I had my network up and running, without problems, then after a reboot, dhclient fails to find my network:
gives me something like:
Sending on Socket/fallback/fallback-net
DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 8
uli526x: eth0 Nic Link is Down
DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 16
No DHCPOFFERS received
No working leases in persistent database
Failed to bring up eth0
I assume that during a packet update, some config got rewritten, which is now blocking dhclient. I know that the network works (dhcp under windows is still working), I don't really want to assign a static ip. I am runngin etch's kernel, 188.8.131.52 (I think) and have done so before, so I know it shouldn't be a driver issue with uli526x, although at one point I read something about "loosing to many clicks...maybe a driver ist blocking interrupts..." on the console...
Any suggestions, are welcome!
