Problem keeping network alive
Hi all

Im running SuSE 7.1 kernel 2.2.18. I have compiled a kernel with only the basics, for server, i.e no module support,only the network and varius hardware. I am having though problems keeping the ethernet alive since it stays on for a while and then it goes of and takes ages to re-activate. Please can some one tell me if there are other packages in the system that deactivate the network module and how can i see when the modules are enabled and when disabled. Also i have disabled all the green functions of the system bios and still have the same problem. I suspect its something in the kernel but dont really know what it is. Like when you let it on the kde login screen and after some time the screen goes black, guess that is cause somewhere there is another power saving module enabled, which affects the network as well.

Thanks for any help.
