I have a fedora 14 server here who's ethernet interface seems to take
just a bit too long to establish a link.
Whenever it starts it is inaccessible over the network, which is a real
pain for a server. I have to go over with the monitor and keyboard,
crawl under the desk...
When I try to restart the network interface with "service network
restart" I get something that looks like :
Bringing up interface eth0:
Determining IP information for eth0...[big number] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP):
eth0: link is not ready.....
[big number] e1000e: eth0 NIC Link is Up 1000 Mbps Full Duplex...
Which sounds to me like a timeout was just a bit too short.
If I try a few times in a row suddenly it works.
