I have a new guest install of Debian 126.96.36.199 i386 as a VM in VMware Server 2 Windows XP host. I selected only the "standard System Utilities." After that I installed SSH and VIM. I then changed the repository selection. Finally I ran
apt-get update and rebooted the system. After the reboot the network card does not start automatically. To get it to work, I need to log into the console and type:
ifconfig eth0 up once done I have full network access until I reboot, and then have to run the command again. After a rebuild, I was able to duplicate the problem. How do I get the network to start automatically?
ifconfig before running the fix only lists the local adapter. eth0 is missing from the output.
