Bringing up interface eth0 [FAILED]
Posted on 2004-08-13
I just installed Redhat Enterprise Linux WS on my laptop. At startup, the screen stalls at this line...
"Bringing up interface eth0"
...then after about 45 seconds it gives me a "[FAILED]" status and then continues with the rest of the startup without any further problems. Why does it do this? My laptop is not connected to a network. I would like to somehow bypass this test or disable whatever is causing this delay b/c I'm working with Oracle and I need to frequently test/configure database parameters and bounce the server to see the effect of my changes -- I cannot afford to wait so long for each startup.
Any help would be apppreciated. Thanks for your time!
