Re: VMWARE ethernet + sound



There is a known problem with the Lance PCnet 'virtual interface' and the media detect functionality of Redhat/Fedora ...

Add this to your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethx :

check_link_down() {
	return 1;
}

A good place is just after your BOOTPROTO=dhcp line. This information is in the VMware knowledge base by the way.

It may be a good idea to use 'PEERDNS=yes' in the ifcfg-ethx file too, as that will allow dhcp to get DNSinformation via DHCP if possible..

Cheers,
Michael
