    Problem getting an IP address


    Sometimes when booting up my Linux machine won't get a valid IP address. Currently the only way i know of to rectify this is to remove the network card from the setup (via YaST) and re-add it. It then works perfectly.

    Is there an easier solution? Some quicker way to re-register the PC on the network?

    Sounds like you're using DHCP.. When you have a valid config, copy down the details, and then enter them as a static config instead.
    200mhz Pentium 1 with MMX, 128mb RAM, 10gb Seagate HDD. Beastly.

    Or simply try

    # rcnetwork restart

    .. but it's not really persistent solution.
