I have no solution, but when I set up a server at Hetzner (same setup) I
had simmilar or same problem. I was completely stumped. Whatever I did I
could not get it to work.
I went through loads of different howto's and documentation, but to no
Eventualliy, after having messed around that much that I have probably 8
different kernels I decided to start from scratch.
I believe I did the same thing as I did the first time around, except
this time it actually worked.
I don't have my notes here at the moment, and since I didn't actually
find the root cause I don't expect them to help much anyway..
Sorry I can't be more helpful. But perhaps if you do find the problem,
at least *I* can have some piece of mind :-)
Do let me know how you get on.
