slackware not running rc.inet1 at boot?


Problem with setting up the eth0 interface in slackware 9.0.

I have run the netconfig program, and when that failed I edited the rc.inet1 script manually, but still slackware will not configure the eth0 interface at boot automatically. I have to do ifconfig and add the default gateway each time manually!

Any ideas whats going on?

Also, how can I make my own scripts execute at boot?

Is rc.inet1 executable? Is it actually called upon from one of the other scripts like say rc.M for instance?

Well it was an interesting resolution in the end.
Yes it was called from rc.M, inside an if construct can't remember the exact syntax....
Anyway I comented out the if part, and the next time it ran it came back saying eth0 device not found!!
Then I was told I could run custom scripts from rc.local, so I did this:

modprobe 3c59x
ifconfig eth0 netmask
route add default gw

and added that script to the rc.local file.

Now everything runs smoothly

But cheers for the feedback!

PS: yea it was executable to start with too
