eth0:link is not ready problem


Hi,

I am havind deep trouble with a bunch of our newly arrived Optiplex 330 as it can't run Centos 5.2 property.

The installation works fine, but when it boots up, it can't be connected to the network. I am getting error saying " link is not ready" when doing system-config-network. I check lspci and it can detect the network controller no problem. The light next to the cable is also on as well.

Does anyone know how I can fix this problem?

We should have bought just one and see if it works before buying more, and now we are stuck.

Could someone please kindly give any suggestion? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,
Pete

Open a terminal and try this:

cd /etc/init.d
sudo ./networking stop
you will be asked to supply you password.
sudo ./networking start


I'm not that familiar with Centos so you may have to enter a different command like net or network.

Also look over the network setup while in X-windows.

One other command is sudo ifconfig eth0 up and then try the networking as above.

As soon as you get the ethernet working make sure you get all the latest updates.

Good Luck
John
