    Assigned a static ip and deleted network-manager, eth0 not starting on boot

    Now i have a slight problem, When i reboot i always have to issue an ifup eth0 to make it have any network connectivity.

    This isnt ideal as im going to turn it into a server and will only be accessing it remotely, i can't do that if it boots with eth0 turned off.

    Is there a problem or do i have to do something to make this happen automaticaly?

    If you're defining the interface via /etc/network/interfaces then you need to mark it as 'auto' I think

    Code:
    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
    .
    .
    .
