Hello, everyone, !!

My Fedora 10 setup doesn't activate eth0 network device automatically even I selected at,

eth0
[V]  Activate device when computer starts.

Up to now, I have to [Activate] eth0 manually each time through GUI [Network Configuration]  after bootup.   Is there any good way to make it activate by writing something ?  

such as on

/etc/rc.d/rc.local     file or else

Thanks for your help.

OK, try these:
# /sbin/chkconfig NetworkManager off
# /sbin/chkconfig network on
# /sbin/service NetworkManager stop
# /sbin/service network restart

Open in new window

Fedora 10 was the first where the network service is disabled by default and they used NetworkManager instead.

HTH,
Dan

1) chkconfig network on
2) echo NETWORKING=yes >> /etc/sysconfig/network
3) echo ONBOOT=yes >> /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

Just a side note, Fedora 10 has been end of life for a few years now (almost 4 years).  You should really upgrade to a more modern operating system.

CentOS6 would be closest 1:1 replacement of F10 for today.

Hi !   everyone,  Dan Craciun,  gheist,   savone,

Thank you very much of your comments.     I will consider upgrading to Fedora [13,or14,or15] sometime.  

 So before Fedora 10, Network service was the default, after Fedora 10 NetworkManager is getting the default and NetworkManager is taking the main control in newer versions.   Do I understand correctly?     This is due to a new kind of network, WiFi wlan0, right?    


Your scripts sound good.    One moment, I will test them.  


[root@biwa ~]# /sbin/chkconfig --list|grep network
error reading info for service net.eth0: No such file or directory
network              0:off      1:off      2:on      3:on      4:on      5:on      6:off
[root@biwa ~]#


After running one of your scripts, [  2:on      3:on      4:on      5:on  ] appear.   What do they means ?       Bye now.

Thank you everyone, it worked out all fine.      In the case of  gheist's suggestion, the file netowork got appended, NETWORKING=yes; AND  the file /ifcfg-eth0 got appended ONBOOT=yes.    

They made the network service start automatically.

You can use CentOS to run whatever you run on Fedora 10 and be secure and modern for today....
