Hello. I'm trying to setup a static IP for my machine that is running "Damn Small Linux" (a variation of Knoppix). When I go into /etc/network/interfaces, I added a static eth0 card as follows...
# Ethernet Card
iface eth0 inet static
When I restart and run ifconfig, it seems to show up for a moment with no IP address set. Then if I run ifconfig again it goes away and I am left with only "lo" set up.
I can run "ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.4" correctly and it gives me an IP address which I can use to ping other machines. Is there anything else I am missing? Thank you in advance.
