Question network not starting automatically? 

Forum: Xircom PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter Issues

I am running RH 6.1 using D.H's wonderful pcmcia driver. My laptop boots fine. the only "strange" msg's during boot are the "normal" FAILED for pcmcia and a "cant yp_bind/domain not bound" error when "listentin for NIS domain server". I understand that the first msg is as expected; the second one seems like a problem to me.

But when I log in I get "network unreachable"; if i then
run netconfig with args of
then the net is fine until I reboot.

I tried manually setting the above values in the /etc/pcmcia/network.opts file but the results were very simalar... including the "cant yp_bind" error during boot. Instead of a "network unreachible" msg from the ping, i get a "no route to host"... which makes it sound like I put the wrong value into the network.opts file... but I compaired it to the value i gave netconfig() and they were both the same (.3)...

Ideas? thanks
