I managed to download and yum update this morning, however:
When I boot:
I see lots of mod_ins segment faults. Seems to be that the arguments to
mod_ins are illformed.
My network is not ifup after the boot. Moreover, when I do the little trick:
there is a complaint that eth0 does not exist.
if I do /sbin/ifconfig I only see the lo device.
To get more updates, I need a network.
What is the best way to proceed manually to bring up eth0 so I can contact
the outside world. (My inside world too - cannot contact this machine
System is i686 smp scsi ipv4 - smp538 kernel.
