Now I want to configure eth1 and eth2 with a static IP. I modified /etc/network/interfaces for that, but it is never taken into account at boot time. I can add a
By the way, this is a frugal install and /etc/network/interfaces is in .filetool.lst
Posted by lucky13 on June 30 2008,15:18The boot-time system configuration is done by /etc/init.d/knoppix-autoconfig. Local boot-time scripts are executed from bootlocal.sh. Those should be adequate to get your other interfaces up. Where are you executing pump for the other two interfaces? Try bootlocal.sh (no sudo required).
pump -i eth1
pump -i eth2

Lucky, he wants static ip's, not dhcp ip's. (Pump = dhcp client)
