I have an issue with Elastix 1.6 and soft RAID. I partition 2 identical drives, installation goes smooth, no issues at all. I log in to console, my server doesn't pull the IP from my DHCP server (router). Unable to edit my network, "setup" does not work neither does system-config-network. Cannot ping or install due to DNS issues. If I install without partitioning, I have no problems. 1.5.3 works fine with same partitions, I double and triple checked my config. Is there a bug in 1.6 (I don't see why my RAID would cause issues). Help please, pulling out my hair over this one.

Thanks.

What model of motherboard are you using or what is the machine model (in the case of brand name)....

Also can you perform a lspci at the linux prompt and provide the results...

Regards

Incredible !
I just solved myself and was really easy for a newbie like me!!!
I just follow the instructions attached to install the driver of my network card which is Realtek RTL8111.
For newbies like me I put instructions here....

<Quick install with proper kernel settings>
Check whether the built-in driver, r8169.ko (or r8169.o for kernel 2.4.x), is installed.
# lsmod | grep r8169

If it is installed, please remove it.
# rmmod r8169
note: If the built-in driver cannot removed by rmmod, please edit /etc/modprobe.conf and comment 'alias eth0 r8169'. Then, remmove it again or reboot your computer.

Unpack the tarball :
# tar vjxf r8168-8.aaa.bb.tar.bz2

Change to the directory:
# cd r8168-8.aaa.bb

If you are running the target kernel, then you should be able to do :

# make clean modules (as root or with sudo)
# make install
# depmod -a
# modprobe r8168

You can check whether the driver is loaded by using following commands.

# lsmod | grep r8168
# ifconfig -a

If there is a device name, ethX, shown on the monitor, the linux driver is loaded. Then, you can use the following command to activate the ethX.

# ifconfig ethX up

,where X=0,1,2,...

<Set the network related information>
1. Set manually
a. Set the IP address of your machine.

# ifconfig ethX "the IP address of your machine" (any ip that you know to be free!)

b. Set the IP address of DNS.

Insert the following configuration in /etc/resolv.conf.

nameserver "the IP address of DNS"

c. Set the IP address of gateway.

# route add default gw "the IP address of gateway"

2. Set by doing configurations in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
/ifcfg-ethX for Redhat and Fedora, or
/etc/sysconfig/network
/ifcfg-ethX for SuSE.
There are two examples to set network configurations.

a. Fix IP address:
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=ethernet
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
IPADDR=192.168.1.1
GATEWAY=192.168.1.254
BROADCAST=192.168.1.255

b. DHCP:
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
ONBOOT=yes


Hope have been helpfull!!
