I installed CentOS 6.3 on my hardrive partition (new install...minimal install).
After successful installation, I see that eth0 was down. I looked for this file:
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules but did not find it.
ifcfg-eth0 settings: Note I had to create this file manually
DEVICE=eth0 HWADDR=* BOOTPROTO=dhcp ONBOOT=yes TYPE=ETHERNET
This machine is connected to Ethernet (I have Windows 7 on another partition and I am able to connect to Internet with that just fine).
$ ifconfig -a | grep eth
returns no result
$ ethtool eth0
Cannot get device settings : No such device...
What can I try to get CentOS to detect eth0?
