lm10.0 gateway is set but when I reboot I have to set the gateway


I have Linux Mandrake 10.0
The gateway is in the /etc/sysconfig/network file and it does not change.
But when I reboot no internet.
so I type
route -n
It shows I don't have a gateway. I check the network file and it is in there.
I do the route add... and setup the gateway every thing works till I reboot.

Any ideas?

thanks
Robert

Eh, it's set by the interface settings...

see /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

etc.

I have tried it in the ifcfg-eth0 file, with the same result.
but if you will look on the web or use the gui to setup the nic you will see
the file i mentioned is the place the gateway is put. /etc/sysconfig/network
GATEWAY=12.105.216.1

ver LM 10.0
thanks

Look on the web?

What does the web have to do with this?

/etc/sysconfig/network is supposed to contain the information the machine needs to establish which LOCAL device is connected to the gateway.

e.g if your primary ethernet nic is called eth0 on a 192.168.0.0 subnet, then it will read like this...

GATEWAY=192.168.0.1
GATEWAYDEV=eth0
NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=MyHOSTNAME.DOMAIN.COM

If the eth0 configuration file differs then the routing is adjusted when the interface is brought up.

eth0 is my web interface
I had the gateway in the eth0
I also searched the web to see if I was setting it up wrong
many documents say to put it there.
I get the same result in both places.
I am not expert enough nor am I here to debate where it goes I just want the problem fixed.
so if I put it in the ifcfg-eth0 file and it does not work what then?

Thanks
Robert

Mandrake is designed so you do all of this in the MCC instead of directly editing the files.

Usually if you are having problems the best thing to do is to eliminate all of the interfaces in the MCC then set them all up again, paying particular attention to how you name the machine (on eth0).

so you are saying that linux mandrake is a gui only system now?
All the systems I have setup. I have not had this problem.
I have never had to set the network cards up with the gui.
Thanks for your time.

Nope... It's your system you can do whatever you want.

But you posted the question, and the answer is that you are fighting how Mandrake is supposed to work, so to speak.

This is akin to the newbie installing TAR files for programs which are available via URPMI, it's counter productive and tends to break things.

The whole point of Mandrake is to attempt to easy things for the user. As such it employs scripts and programs that have certain expectations as far as configuration files, etc.

If you set things up manually you'll often find that things will be set back to an unexpected state when you run certain applications that trigger the same programs and scripts.

You CAN work around this but in effect a) expect to deal with this yourself, b) you'll have to track down and modify those programs and scripts which try to set things back...

This includes, profiles, startup services, etc.

Also RPM/URPM updates will want to set things back.
