Need help with new installed system (11.1).
Yesterday after the install I updated system with you, and after that
seems) I am having trouble with networking.
This morning reports came, that there was no Internet, and after a
I ended up with only one network card.
Config is like this:
- 8169 on mobo (Gbit) for internal 192.168.0.254 fixed address, eth0
- 8139 PCI (10/100) for Internet on dhcp, eth1
This morning when I looked in the system I could see them both with
ifconfig, but the internal network was not pingable.
After a reboot I can only see eth1, and in dmesg I found this:
eth0 renamed to eth1 by udevd
Now with ifconfig I do no longer see eth0. Ran yast, there are still 2
networkdevices in the config, but eth0 shows no MAC-address.
Letting yast reconfigure and start the network does not help.
How can I get eth0 back to life?
It is quite urgent, there is also mail flowing in and out of this
This is very likely https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=546575
See http://en.opensuse.org/Bugs:Most_Annoying_Bugs_11.2 section
Very interesting to see this issue on a plain openSUSE 11.1. Please add
your experience to the bug 546575. Even or in particular if you're
still on 11.1.
Coming back on this one, Lars, because I just experienced this again this
afternoon. Losing network connectivity, while nothing has been updated.
Don't think this is the same bug as you have.
It appears, that the driver r8169 is losing the hardware. I cannot ping
from this network adapter, but according to the system, everything is up
and running (ifconfig ok, no mention of "link down" or so in messages).
I have found this page, that mentions problems with this adapter and board:
I am running kernel 184.108.40.206-0.1-default x86_64, openSUSE 11.1 on this
I do not get a kernel panic, but lose all contact with the network on this
adapter, and the only way to get it running again is shutdown the system,
taking all the power away, even have to unplug the network cable.
The rpm mentioned in the novell-page seems to be built against another
kernel, and I did not test, but I think it will not work with what I have.
Is somebody aware of this bug, are there patched sources of this module so
that I can build it myself, or is someone working on this for 11.1 (and
11.2, of course)?
Or do I have to report this in bugzilla?
We might even need some log files. See http://en.opensuse.org/Bugs/YaST
section "I reported a YaST2 bug, and now I am asked to "attach y2logs".
What does that mean, and how do I do that?"
Also a tar ball of /etc/udev/ might be of use.
