Ubuntu 11.10 problem: Waiting for network configuration : Solved

Hi all! Here is another critical problem solved.

Problem: Many of the newly installed ubuntu machines reporting the following issue. A message " Waiting for network conffiguration"  followed by “Waiting up to 60 seconds more for network”? This then might be accompanied by a black blank screen.

  • Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 at the blank screen to get you to a non-X terminal (tty1)

  • enter your username and password when prompted
  • Change to root with: sudo -i and enter your password when asked.
  • then type each of the lines followed by enter.
  • mkdir -p /run /run/lock
  • rm -rf /var/run /var/lock
  • ln -s /run /var
  • ln -s /run/lock /var
  • reboot your system and you should get your Ubuntu 11.10 back in action

thank you
