eth0 not found > suse


Actually my nic is found, BUT heres my actual situation.

I move around a lot with my notebook, joining networks with dhcp/static ips, while at other times I'm standalone.

What I usually do is disable my nic at boot time (boots up faster). Then if I want to joing a network I do a

# ifconfig eth0 up <cause I've set it to dhcp by default>

otherwise I manually select an ip as needed

right now if I try to do either I get the following


# ifconfig eth0 196.3.0.1
eth0:Error fetching interface information: Device eth0 not found


I had a similar problem with hardware not being detected at boot, with my usb. I made a script file in my init.d which modprobe the usb and thus activated the kernel module.
I suspect the solution my be along these lines?

I don't know if this will help or not, but when I first installed 9.1 it didn't install the dchp daemon. That made it look like eth0 was configured correctly, but it didn't work.

Turns out I had to fire up YaST and manually install dhcpd to get it to work.

Perhaps you have a similar problem?

yep yast detects it for me.

Actually I put back the hardware icon in the tasktray. When I open it, I browse to the network and on the last tab there is the command.

modprobe natsemi

That hardware icon is rather usefull; I'll look at the dhcp daemon.
