    network problem 10.04 ==> 12.04

    I did the upgrade and it went sort of well
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2068666.

    I did some searching on the problem but apparently can't find the right terms. I'm sure I'm not the only one having this problem.

    This is the error message I get at boot:

    • waiting for network configuration ...
    • waiting up to 60 more seconds for network configuration
    • booting system without full network configuration


    When I tried the live CD everything worked OK. I'm using a Dell 1420n and ran Ubuntu on this box since 7.04 with very few problems.

    Here is my network card info from lspci:
    09:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM5906M Fast Ethernet PCI Express (rev 02)
    0c:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)
    ifconfig yields:

    I am multibooting with Mint 13 and Ubuntu 10.04 and having no problems with either.

    I can connect with either WiFi or ethernet cable and things work but I have the boot error. It just takes longer to boot with Ubuntu on the hard drive than with the live CD.

    About time to give it a bump I guess.

    I tried the solution you provided in the link. No luck. In fact it totally messed up my internet connection. Mint 13 works on the same computer so I know it's not a hardware problem. Guess I'll try it again later, just to see how it works out.

    i had this happen to me when i setup a system from the mini.iso
    i know i googed the message text, dont recall what i did to fix it

    you can edit the script that waits for that
    /etc/init/failsafe.conf

    Code:
        30        # waiting on it to start.
        31        $PLYMOUTH message --text="Waiting for network configuration..." || :
        32        sleep 40
        33    
        34        $PLYMOUTH message --text="Waiting up to 60 more seconds for network configuration..." || :
        35        sleep 59
        36        $PLYMOUTH message --text="Booting system without full network configuration..." || :
        37    
        38        # give user 1 second to see this message since plymouth will go
    comment out the bold lines (put a # symbol at the start of the line)

    Booted this morning and everything works fine. I have no idea what happened, if it was an update or what.
