I booted an OS from a live CD. The OS boots successfully but eth0 fails to start. I checked
lspci, it outputs these Ethernet card details:
(Broadcom Netextreme II BCM5716 GBabyte ethernet)
ifconfig -a returns only the loopback interfaces
sit0. The output of
dmesg | grep -I 'eth' is:
"Netfront : initializing network ethernet driver"
When I run
service network restart I get:
"Obtaining IP for lo [FAILED] WARNING: Deprecated config gile /etc/modprobe.conf , all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/ Device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization [FAILED]"
The output of
MII-tool -v is:
No MII interface found.
I was also able to find the kernel module
bnx2.ko. I did
lsmod lists it. I am not sure what exactly is the issue or how to debug this problem. Any assistance or pointers will be helpful.
