About eight months ago I installed SuSE 9.0 Pro on a friend's XP
machine on a newly added hard drive as dual boot, with linux default.
My friend is *not* what you would call computer literate. I directed
him to some beginning linux courses on the web and gave him my 9.0
manuals to read/referrrence. He has slowly become about 75 per cent
linux user, booting windoz only for streaming media that we cannot
seem to make work in linux.
A couple of days ago, he booted windoz for an hour and returned to
linux to find that he could not access the net. Previous he had had
no problems accessing his cable connection thru a router.
I ran ifconfig and it only showed lo, so I ran 'rcnetwork start' and
ifconfig showed lo and eth0. Access to the net was restored.
I ran yast2 to check that network was enabled in runlevels 2,3,5. It
Rebooted to see if the network would start normally and again, the
network did not start. rcnetwork start restored net access.
Knoppix and the SuSE 9.2 Live CD both provide net access w/o user
intervention. I do not know what else to check, suggestions welcome.
