I added two gigs of ram to a workstation running debian lenny
and when I booted the machine I had no network connectivity.
ifconfig returned a similar IP address: 169.254.*.* and the following
is now in syslog:
kernel: skge eth2: enabling interface
NetworkManager: <info> eth2: Device is fully-supported using driver 'skge'
NetworkManager: <info> nm_device_init(): waiting for device's worker
thread to start
NetworkManager: <info> nm_device_init(): device's worker thread started,
NetworkManager: <info> Now managing wired Ethernet (802.3) device 'eth2'.
NetworkManager: <info> Deactivating device eth2.
I upgraded the kernel to 2.6.25-2-amd64, but this hasn't helped and
running dhclient returns
>No DHCPOFFERS received
>No working leases in persistent database - sleeping.
Aside from the problem with eth2, everything else seems to be
working correctly. I'm fairly certain that the new RAM chips are
exactly the same as the existing ones and when I remove them,
eth2 picks up the correct IP address. I would be very grateful
for any help or suggestions.
Thanks in advance,
