I just updated a solid 9.0 setup to 9.1 and am having a very odd problem. When I boot the system, I get the following errors in the boot log:

If I go to YAST, the network device is all nicely setup. All I have to do is click Finish and everything works fine...until the next reboot when the process starts all over.

The system is a vanilla Intel motherboard with a single builtin ethernet adapter (which makes the bus-pci and eth-id entries kind of odd).

Any ideas?

Thanks,
mike.



Before going into YaST, check if the ethernet module is loaded. If not loaded try "rcnetwork restart". The bus-pci etc. entries are OK, see
/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth-id-00:0c:f1:6d:25:31, the 20-0 is the 20 second timeout value countdown for the interface to become active.

Regards
Sid.
