Network must be restarted after boot finishes

Hello,
Something is messed up. I have to manually /etc/rc.d/network restart after every boot to get the network up and running. I realized that I didn't have 8139too in the modules array in rc.conf at first, then added it, but that didn't solve my problem. This is an integrated network device.

Re: Network must be restarted after boot finishes

hmmm you can try changing the timeout in /etc/conf.d/dhcpcd - do you have a slow network/dhcp server that would need more than 10 seconds to determine your address?
I seem to recall others having this issue, but can't recall what the solution was.

Re: Network must be restarted after boot finishes

I use a static address. This is going to be a new server, therefore important I can reboot it remotely and not worry.

Re: Network must be restarted after boot finishes

hmmm... well, maybe you'd want to move the network daemon to the end of the daemons list (and don't background it, if you're doing that)

Re: Network must be restarted after boot finishes

MODULES=(!usbserial !ide-scsi 8139too)

eth0="eth0 192.168.2.202 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.2.255"
INTERFACES=(lo eth0)

gateway="default gw 192.168.2.1"
ROUTES=(gateway)

DAEMONS=(syslog-ng hotplug !pcmcia network @sshd @netfs @crond)

All I really could do is move crond. I guess it is worth a shot, but not a great option in case I ever have network cron job that needs to be run right away. I will try it though.

Re: Network must be restarted after boot finishes

yeah, best bet is to try and read through the rc.sysinit and figure out what isn't there that needs to be there.... I'm really at a loss... sorry

Does anyone think hotplug may have something to do with this?

Re: Network must be restarted after boot finishes

Moving the network daemon before hotplug seems to fix the problem temporarily. I will still try to find out the root of the problem and fix it.

EDIT:

Scratch that. I can only access the box form within my network. It can't see out either.

This is from an ssh session.

[root@stilletto ~]# ping google.com
connect: Network is unreachable
[root@stilletto ~]# /etc/rc.d/network restart && exit
Network is not running.  Try 'network start'

Re: Network must be restarted after boot finishes

mmm - i already suggested in another thread - just cos network is "not running" doesn't mean your interfaces are not up - it can bring you interfaces up fine but the daemon can still fail
