View Full Version : dhcp problem

12-06-2004, 10:30 PM
i am using version 3.4 installed to HD.I have to run the network card configuration every time i boot up to enable dhcp.Is there a way this can be done automatically on boot.On the start up screen it does show dhcp as starting, it says (backgrounding) after it.Any help appreciated.Thanks.

What type of internet connection are you on? I have dsl and mine would not stick either after a shutdown. This post helped me to fix it:


This is what was done to this file: Edited /etc/init.d/knoppix-autoconfig
comment out line that reads: pump -i $DEVICE >/dev/null 2>&1 &
and add line : /etc/init.d/networking restart

So it should look like this:

broadcasting for IP.${NORMAL}"
trap 2 3 11
#pump -i $DEVICE >/dev/null 2>&1 &
/etc/init.d/networking restart
trap "" 2 3 11
sleep 1
echo " ${BLUE}(Backgrounding)${NORMAL}"

Hope this helps.
