Is NetworkManager turned on or off at boot?
chkconfig --list NetworkManager

want to post them to the list so we have half a chance at diagnosing.

It is turned on for 2 3 4 5 and off for the rest. I hope that means it's on at boot. It is on this F-9 computer. This is what I see in /var/log/messages. It's not this computer so I have to transfer stuff to keep the thread from breaking. See attachment.

here's my take on it and others may and probably will differ...

chkconfig NetworkManager off
chkconfig network on

The reason is that NetworkManager is mostly prone to starting only when
user logs in and 'network' starts up early as daemon and doesn't require
a user login. There apparently is configuration options to change that
behavior.

I suspect that if you execute those 2 commands, your next startup will
have networking up and running at startup.

I finally found the problem, another artifact of the original livecd install.

   /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

   ONBOOT=no had to be set to yes.

All I changed there was NETMASK to:


   NETMASK=255.255.255.0

Thanks for the help.

Bob
