RE: [opensuse] eth* connection status via cli

Thank you, Per Jessen, and others, for your suggestions. The link
connection status is shown with 'ethtool', however that tool is not
part of the Rescue session on the install DVD. The command 'ip addr
show' has 'state DOWN' even with the nics cabled and connected to the
network.
Definitely getting closer to a solution.

Unfortunately there are multiple methods to check the link status and
different drivers use different mehods and some cannot check the link
status at all. The program ifplugstatus I suggested uses all all known
methods for the check.

It does, yet that command is not available when running in Rescue mode
from a DVD.

Best regards,

James
