ifup eth1

Recommended Posts

When i installed fc6 it used my PCI NIC wich was defined as eth0, but after install i changed to my nforce on-board lan card wich is defined as eth1.


Now, every time I boot linux i have to type "ifup eth1" to get an ip from DHCP and be connected to internet. How can I fix this so it happens automagically? :) This is BTW a question I've been wondering for years so please help me someone.

you could add the line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local


that file is parsed on every boot




vi /etc/rc.d/rc.local


and add your line in there, save the file reboot and test




as root type




and edit your network card so that it starts on every boot


see attached screenshot.
