Ethernet is not started at boot
I have installed on my ThinkPad T400 recently Stretch (base, xorg, wdm,
fvwm, gthumb, blueman, alsa...) only to discover, that 17 Packages have
11 Packages are now working and I try to figure out, WHICH depends are
missing to write the appropriated Bug Reports.
However, I instaleld Stretch from an 8 GByte USB Stick and it was more
or less working, except that afterwards the download of 8 GByte ISOs
and copying to the USB stick was worthless, because apt can not mount
the USB Stick and install from there (after reboot)...
Note: Where I live (Estonia), we do not DSL and I am on GSM/LTE
and the download has cost me 1/3 of my nmonthly contingent.
Direct installing from the internet is no real option,
because I have to install a WHOLE Network and it mean, I
have to download 17 times 2,5 Gbyte
However, the Stretch installer had not accept at install time my fixed
IP addresds because it could not connect to the internet and I was
forced to use DHCP which in turn is not allowed to connect to my
Intranet Server for security reason (SE_Linux)
Now I have tried to change this to a fixed IP address in
/etc/network/interfaces, but it showed no reaction, still started DHCP
even if it is not configured.
Note: I have network-manager is NOT installed!
/etc/default/networking is set to configure network at boottime.
But whenever I boot my computer, I have to login as root and run "ifup".
Can someone tell me, WTF is going on here?
Note: I upgraded my broken (Display) Compaq CQ58 also to Stretch
and I have no networking anymore. Why is this?
Any hints welcome
I am now realy angry!
Thanks in advance
