Obtaining IP on boot up fails
Hi I'm using fedora 4 and have just installed in on my COMPAQ Presario V2610AC.
During boot up the attempt to obtain an IP via eth0 fails each time.
I get the following message "Determining IP information for eth0...ping: icmp open socket: Permission denied.
I have a Ethernet Hub connected to a DSL modem. The DSL modelhave my ISP loaginon ian pass word info.
I followed the default Workstation installation.
Why os it failing dure boot up?
However if I use the Network setting to start this device it comes up.
Next weird thing is I can Ping my other computers on the LAN but Firfox canot access the internet
Sorry not too bright,
