    if-up is not bringing up my devices


    H'Ok, so...

    I have multiple NICs. One is my connect interface that has a static IP, and the others just look pretty.

    Upon boot, I get the following message several times:
    Code:
    if-up.d/mountnfs [device__]: lock /var/run/network/mountnfs exist, not mounting
    Where device is all but my connect NIC.

    After boot, if I run "ifconfig", only my lo and connect NIC show up. If i run "ifconfig -a", all of my devices are there. I want all my devices to be up at boot though. If I run ifconfig <device__> up, the device will come up and work fine. I want it to work at boot with if-up though.

    The /etc/networks/interfaces file should be fine, as it is the same that I used in my 8.04 machine, but regardless here it is:
    Code:
    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
    
    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    
    # The primary network interface
    auto connect
    iface connect inet static
        address 192.168.x.y
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        network 192.168.x.0
        broadcast 192.168.x.255
        gateway 192.168.x.1
    
    # Bring up sniff interfaces
    auto device0 device1 device2 device3 device4
    iface device0 inet manual
    iface device1 inet manual
    iface device2 inet manual
    iface device3 inet manual
    iface device4 inet manual
    Any suggestions or requests for further debug information?

    move the file /var/run/network/mountnfs to say /var/run/network/mountnfs.test and then reboot and see. Also what does the file mountnfs contains ??
    Only if I could understand the man pages

    The file /var/run/network/mountnfs does not exist at any point that I have been able to determine. The program may create it as a lock/semaphore and then almost immediately delete it, but as far as I can see, it does not exist.

    Where would I find the configuration of eth? Are you talking about the interfaces file?

    Have you had an unclean shutdown before?
    Quite possibly. If unclean shutdown is the problem, how would I fix it so that it worked again? An unclean shutdown may have happened, and may just happen again.

    May be you will find yours in the same palce or may be not.
    Find the configuration file of the ethernet and post it here only of the one not working. Also try restarting the network service
