Question Mandrake Linux 10 / VMWARE 4.5 / Network issue


Hello,
I'm having problems configuring the network on Mandrake running as guest on vmware on Windows xp. I've tried doing it thru Bridged and NAT modes. I'm currently on a box -> (network) -> router -> inet. scheme.

ifconfig output:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:B0:D0:86:BF:6F
inet addr:130.58.82.106 Bcast:130.58.82.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
EtherTalk Phase 2 addr:2721/20
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:112630 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:94034 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0

lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
EtherTalk Phase 2 addr:0/0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:3924 Metric:1
RX packets:22732 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:22732 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0

cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 output:

DEVICE:eth0
BOOTPROTO:DHCP
NETMASK:255.255.255.0
ONBOOT:yes
HWADDR: 00:0c:29:85:75:2b
MII_NOT_SUPPORYED:no
DHCP_HOSTNAME:192.168.1.1
NEEDHOSTNAME:yes

I setup the eth0 configuration thru 'drakconnect'.

If anyone has a suggestion, I'll appreciate it.

Thanks.

Hehe, the problem is that on startup/afterwards when trying to initialize eth0 it fails.

The only thing I can ping is localhost. Else is network unreachable.

In your ifcfg-ethX file (X is the number of the adapter) add:

MII_NOT_SUPPORTED=yes

I don't remember what MII is but it doesn't work with VMWare and breaks networking.

Thank you, now it works without problems.
By the way, it refers to "Network Hotplugging" if I'm not mistaken.
