I am using ubuntu 10.04 (Bio-linux 6.0). Last night I tried leaving my system in hibernate mode because there appears to be a bug in this version of ubuntu such that if I do a straight shut-down, the machine will boot up by itself some time overnight.
This morning I could not bring the system back up from hibernate so had to hold down the power button to reset. Upon restarting I found my network connections (wired) had disappeared. I eventually found the following code online:
sudo service network-manager stop sudo rm /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state sudo service network-manager start
Fortunately running this code returned my auto eth0 connection. However, I used to also have a connection called auto eth1, and this appears no longer to be present.
My question therefore has three parts:
- What is auto eth1?
- Do I need to get it back?
- How do I get it back?
