No errors in this file. However it's interesting that (if I remember
the thread so far) you reported the disappearing of a network interface
with two different devices... however, there's something strange about
the message: when I try to run dhclient for a network interface that
does not exist on my system, I get this:
# dhclient fxp0
ifconfig: interface fxp0 does not exist
fxp0: not found
Note the ifconfig-related line. And if you run "ifconfig -a" and the
interface _is_ listed, this makes the whole thing even more strange...
