First post here I think
I have a 14.10 box that used to be a 14.04 box. It's a media centre.
When it was a 14.04 box it booted up fine. Now though it doesn't. When it boots it pauses on "Waiting for Network configuration" for about 3 minutes. Then when it finally come up it doesn't start any network interfaces.
sudo service network-manager start
will get things going again but I can't keep doing it for life. Please help me to figure out how to get it to start automatically again.
I'm on the verge of reinstalling but in the interests of overcoming problems rather than just trying to avoid them I thought I'd ask here.
Some google results keeps pointing me to a problem with
/etc/network/interfaces but I've even gone so far as removing this file and I still have no luck.
Hoping you folks can help. This is pretty frustrating.
Happy to post contents of whatever would help.
