I am running Mandriva 2005 LE and my network does not auto-start with the computer.
I have tryed hundreds of times to check and uncheck "start network on boot" on Mandrake Control Center. I also have already reconfigured my internet duzens of times to no vail. I also googled without sucess.
Now the wierd thing: On boot time I can see the message: "bringing up eth0 interface ..... [OK]"
So I imagine, eth0 should be up, right?
Here is my ifconfig after boot:
[root@Lapa felipe]# ifconfig

inet end.: 127.0.0.1 Masc:255.0.0.0

TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
As you can see eth0 is not functioning after boot. Going to mandrake control center and reconfigure my internet will bring eth0 up, but just until reboot.
So, what command should I use on the command line to get eth0 up?
Is there a proper init file to put it?
Any other suggestions?
My internet is Cable with non-real fixed IP. The configuration is right cos it works once Mandrake Control Center brings eth0 up.
