SubjectRe: 2.4.4 breaks dhcpcd with Realtek 8139
what sort of switch are you plugged into? some Cisco switches have a
'feature' that ignores all traffic from a port for X seconds after a
machine is plugged in / powered on on a port (they claim somehting about
preventing loops) it may be that the new kernel now boots up faster then
the old one so that the DHCP request is lost in the switch, a few seconds
later when you do it by hand the swich has enabled your port and
everything works.
