How do I set eth0 to connect on boot?
I'm currently running 10.04 LTS server on a TS130 ThinkServer. Unfortunately because I have the new 82579LM gigabit network card, in order to connect I had to compile the module separately and modprobe it to enable eth0.
Because I'm using this as a remote server on a static IP, I routinely need to SSH to it, but whenever it needs to be reset, I must run
after logging in locally on the box, or else it cannot connect to the internet.
Is there anyway I can automate the box to auto-connect eth0 by running dhclient as root on startup?
