Hi there,

I've installed Haiku with an image (

The install worked fine but when i modified the NetBootscript to start

'ls /dev/net' outputs : stack, rtl8139

( I don't understand the use of 'ls' in the script )

But i can't assign an ip address to my card :

ifconfig rtl81390 netmask up

warning: SIOCAIFADDR: error -1 [General system error]
warning: SIOCAIFADDR: error -1 [General system error]

I've got the net_stack_driver well present on the system and the rtl8139's too.

I read severals mails and wiki's pages but i can't find how to resolve
this. May be the solution very simple ? What do i miss ?
