I've just installed Redhat 8.0 and each time it boot I got the same problem. It says "Determining IP information for eth0... failed; no link present. Check cable?". When my system his fully loaded I just have to do a "ifup eth0 in a shell and it work after 2 or 3 times. I change my module "tulip" to be autoclean and restart the network and its still doing the same thing.
my eth0 is hooked up on a cable modem
network-script: bootproto: DHCP
in my var/log/message:
Its sending DHCPREQUEST multiple times before dropping.
then like i told before.. when I'm in my shell.. I do ifup eth0 and it work...
I just dont understand hehe..
I'm thinking to re-compile the kernel.
Do anybody have an other option?
