Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I installed Ubuntu 12.04 base system via the "minimal ubuntu" ISO.

I make a script to get hostname from dhcp server as explained here. It works perfect. I don't install network manager because I dont need it.

Then I made an livecd.iso with relinux. It always shows "waiting for network configuration" and my script doesn't work when boot with livecd.iso(it shows same result with remastersys).

I realize that it doesn't give this waiting message if I install network manager. But at this time, my script stops again because network manager doesn't hooks dhclient-exit-hooks.d.

Relinux also changes my /etc/network/interfaces. It adds "eth1", "wlan" etc. After some research, I use this solution to fix it but ubuntu starts without network configuration.

How can i solve this problem?
