eth0 port activation failed during boot
I installed FC4 on my PC. Everything seemed to be fine until rebooted. I got the following error message during boot:
determing IP info for eth0
ping: icmp open socket: permission denied
However, I was able to activate eth0 once I login in as root by using neat or running ifup eth0. Then everything was OK, I could ping and went online. I spent quite some time to research this problem online but went in vain. Every time I booted Linux, I got this message and had to manually setup network. This is my ifcfg-eth0 looks like:
$ cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
HWADDR=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx # replaced hex with xx
I had my firewall enabled with www and ssh as trusted services and eth0 as trusted device. I know there should be a way to enable eth0 during boot process rather than do it manually, requiring root privilege. Any idea/suggestion? Thanks a lot.
