how to get eth0 up on startup in slackware?


What should I do to get eth0 up at startup?

Typing something like
Code:
ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.0.255 up
every time i reboot is tiresome.

Is there another way?

I'm using Slackware 10.2

I don't think you need to reconfigure (ie use ifconfig) each reboot. Ifconfig should be used automatically when you boot the machine to setup all network interfaces, if they are configured correctly, that is.

Can't you simply use 'ifup' to get eth0 up and running (in case it is down)?

You can fill in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf with the appropriate values of your network, or you can use
Code:
netconfig
to do the job.
