eth0 freezes / hangs on boot after upgrade mandrake 10.1 to 10.2 (solved)
Since updating from 10.1 to 10.2 (yesterday), the PC is blocked:
"bring up interface eth0" and then the boot sequence stops .
I wonder if anybody had the same problem
caused by the upgrade?
Solved the problem (press I, do not start eth0)
then the network icon has some new menus and it is possible
to disable eth0 and eth1 at boot time.
Could not tell from var/messages why eth0 was not starting.
Maybe it is this Howl stuffs that are new services, that I may not
need, that were installed? So I disabled these as well.
Now it boots all right
I only have a 56k modem, eth0 is not connected to anything.
I did not have that problem with 10.1.
