FS#294 - net connector is not activating the ethernet card on normal boot


I just have installed the last development release of elive on my dell inspiron 1300 laptop.

Everything went ok except that after the “fine tuning” of the installed system the network connection is not activated by the default by the system when doing a normal boot. For the moment i am using elive panel to access the network connector to connect the card to the internet (via DHCP) or ifconfig in the terminal.

I saw that the netconnector has a “auto-connect” feature which is ticked yet it seems it doesn’t work.

My ethernet card is a Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base-Tx card.

Thanks a lot for your help on this and congratulations for a fine linux distribution.
