Integrated Intel NIC card disappear after rebootin

Link to this post 06 Aug 10

Hi all, I'm absolutely new to Linux... here my issue:

SUSE during setup didn't see my HP Compaq 6000 integrated NIC card (Intel 82567LM chipset)

No problem, I downloaded the driver source from Intel site, and compiled it as a RPM package using rpmbuild.
It worked immediately.

The problem now is that after reboot the nic disappear!
If a try an"ifconfig" I see only the lo interface.

Then simply going in Yast, Network card, use "Network Manager", I see the intel nic in the list, I click "finish" and the NIC is working fine again....:huh:

So it seems there is something missing to automatically start the nic during boot sequence I suppose...

any idea? :unsure:
thanks

It sounds like the card drivers are activated on boot, but your current configuration is not set to have the card automatically call out for a dhcp address. I am not a suse user so I do not know the tools, but http://opensuse.swerdna.org/susenic.html should give you some guidance for setting up your network interface defaults to enable dhcp addressing.
