I’m trying to configure OpenSuSE 11.2 with Open vSwitch, and I’m having trouble getting various interfaces to come up automatically when I have bootmode set to “none.” startmode is set to auto (or on - tried both), and bootmode set to none, with no IP address assigned in the file. At boot time, I get the message that it’s bringing up eth0, for example, but when I log in and check, the interface is not up. Also, if I try “ifup eth0”, I get the following output:
xen-users:~ # ifup eth0
eth0 device: Intel Corporation 82566DM-2 Gigabit Network Connection (rev 02)
but the interface is not brought up. Can someone point me in the direction of why SuSE is saying that it’s bringing up the interface successfully, but is actually not bringing it up?
