Mandrake 10 - Network won't start at boot


Hi, I've just installed Mandrake 10. A few minor hitches, but all is well - except for the fact that my network won't start when I boot. If I restart /etc/init.d/network, it says OK, but nothing happens. ifconfig reveals that only the lo (loopback) device is present. To get it to start, I have to run Hardrake's "config tool" on my network card, change the first option from modem to "ADSL", and then click OK for the rest of the questions (since it remembers the values correctly for the rest). Once done, the network is up. How can I begin to debug this? What are the network files involved at bootup?

Thanks!

This sounds more like your NIC module is not loading at startup. Can you post the resulps of lsmod and lspci?

looks like the right module for your card is the 3c59x module and I don't see it in the list, so perhaps a
Code:
modprobe 3c59x
ifup eth0
will suffice to get the card started. Let me know

That works well, thanks. What is the cleanest way to make this permanent?

Fire up a text editor as root and edit your /etc/modprobe.preload file by putting that line in. Enter just the module name and you should have networking on bootup. Someone else had the same problem at almost the exact time as you did. This would be done in /etc/modules.conf if you were running a 2.4 kernel. You'll see this when you read the comments in the file. Surf away!
