NIC boot problem?


Im currently not on any network as far as my NIC is concerned and I belive that has something to do with it but hopefully there is a workaround. The problem is when I boot up it hangs for awhile on the "Bringing up interface eth0" part it takes quite sometime then says failed no ip address found then continues the rest of the boot process. Is there anyway around to make it check this part quicker?

It looks your nic is wrongly configured. If you don't need network at all, you can turn it off. But in other cases it's good to find out why. First look into /var/log/boot.log and look for errors/complains about your nic.

All it says in that file is " Determining IP information for eth0...
Jun 17 19:20:11 localhost ifup: failed."Jun 17 19:20:11 localhost network: Bringing up interface eth0: failed"

Is there a way to give my nic an IP even though Im not on a network?

It tries to get IP from DHCP server. Do you use DHCP?

Yes I think I do I remember seeing some question like that during install. So when I install as long as I dont choose this option I shouldnt have this problem is that what you are saying?

You don't have to reinstall. It's not a very big problem and you can change this setting from your system.
Try
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.1
