IP-Config no response after 2 secs giving up...

Postby bookie » 2017-01-28 08:12

Hi guys!
I have decided to install Debian 8 on my main server...
I have disabled the on board network card because I have two separate network cards for this server...
the first card eth0 is for my puplic network (internet connection)
the second card eth1 is for my clonezilla server installation....
I have installed dd-wrt on my router and have a reserved ip addresses for all my computers...to keep tabs on them...
If I check "ip a" it shows the above as is....
I have also added the ip information to my /etc/network/interfaces to reflect the above...
When setting up clonezilla server it sees the two above cards and they are automatically set to the /etc/network/interfaces file
The only problem with the above was clonezilla wanted a DNS server setup and recommends adding the information to /etc/resolv.conf so I have added google and my gateway which fixed my internet problems after installing clonezilla...;)
I have also added nvidia for my old GeForce 9600 GT card ...should mention after reboot I had 640x480 resolution which i fixed by adding the right HorizSync and VertFresh to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file...)

All the above probably has nothing to do with my message on screen att start up...

Both my network cards are listed and then the following message:
IP-Config no response after 2 secs giving up....

I have read about the IP-Config on many threads and wondered why I am getting it on Debian 8?

Is there a way to remove this info from start up?

Kind of confusing the way you describe it. You have a server with X that runs clonezilla, and you installed debian on it?

And you see this ip-config error at boot time with your two interfaces listed?

Do both interfaces work correctly?

have read about the IP-Config on many threads


If you post some links to the threads, someone might have a better idea how to help.

Hi bw123 :D
Don't worry I confuse myself all the time...
I have a server that has Debian 8 installed on it and have installed the software for Clonezilla Server in Debian...
I have set up everything as usual and get the title message when debian boots...
Here are a couple of links that talk about the same message...
I am not booting pxe...just standard boot...

Hi again!
This is obviously a problem that has been around for a long time that seems to survive to newer versions...but no solution...
Find it strange with it being discussed many times at Ubuntu....a bug like this shouldn't be around now...

Looks like a PXE boot error (so, is your hardware and not related to any OS).
Turn off 'network boot' in your BIOS/EFI.

Maybe in the firmware of one of your new NIC's?

Hi again!
Well, I did:
Code: Select all
$ sudo hwinfo --short

This gave me:
eth0 Realtek RTL8111/8168 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller
eth1 D-Link DFE-530 TX rev c

when I look at the list of supported nic's for Debian 8 I can't find my version....

Unless someone knows different?

Hi guys!
I went out and bought a new nic with the same realtek R8111/8168

Well, I downloaded the R8168 driver directly from Realtek and installed that...

I can run:
Code: Select all
$ sudo ethtool -i eth1


This gives me:

Code: Select all
driver: r8168
version: 8.043.02-NAPI
firmware-version:
bus-info: 0000:09:00.0
supports-statistics: yes
supports-test: no
supports-eeprom-access: no
supports-register-dump: yes
supports-priv-flags: no


so...the driver is being used....
It didn't change anything on start up...same message...
If I removed my D-Link i didn't get any message...
When I added another nic (the same type) the message is back even if it shows the driver installed on both of the nics...

So, I don't think it is hardware related...

Anymore ideas?

Have you tried to pass a boot parameter:

"ethdev_timeout=[number of seconds]" ?
