    Bringing up eth0: Drop the subject!


    I use PPPoE (thanks a lot Verizon! yeah...) with my DSL modem, so on boot, "Bringing up interface eth0" always fails because there's no IP, and it also always takes a minute or two to try to detect one. Is there a way I can nuke this at startup? Something tells me setting a Dummy IP would help?

    What distro? There is probably a network script in /etc/init.d that you can disable.

    I believe you can disable the network if you run "netconfig" at a term.

    I don't want to disable the network, I have to get online through my ethernet card, I just want to stop the whatever happens with "Bringing up interface eth0" because it won't pass with PPPoE.
