RedHat Alpha 6.2 eth0 "delaying initialization" problem
I recently installed RedHat 6.2 Alpha on an old DEC Multia. The install went fine *with some tweaking*. I know that the kernel I am using had the correct modules to utilize the onboard NIC as I installed the OS over FTP. However, after booting from the installtion (rather than setup media) when running service network start/ifup eth0 loopback is brought up and I then recieve the following error:
Delaying eth0 initialization.
eth0 is never brought up, and running service network start results in the expected [FAILED] error.
I have googled this a bit and seen some old mailing lists on the subject, but no definitative answer. The Multia does have 2 PCMCIA slots, however the ethernet card is a built in 10baseT.
Also, I have statically configured eth0 and the config is correct.
