Due to some other conflicts, I disabled/stopped NetworkManager in Fedora 15.
Now, for network configuration I used system-config-network-gui to config & enable Ethernet interface.
Problem is, when the system starts, the Ethernet does not become enabled. Although in configuration through system-config-network I specifically checked:
"Activate device when computer starts"
"Allow all users to enable and disable the device"
and cleared "Controlled by NetworkManager"
I double checked the config file "/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0" to see if the configurations are saved correctly and onboot is enabled. And they look OK.
So, Why does it still not become enabled automatically on boot?
