SIOCADDRT errors when running route under 1.3.3x kernels

SIOCADDRT errors when running route under 1.3.3x kernels

Post by Richard Moldova » Wed, 06 Dec 1995 04:00:00



I have recently compiled version 1.3.35 on my Linux box.  When running
under 1.2.12 all network function work fine.  Under 1.3.35 I can not
even ping 127.0.0.1 (localhost).  The route command always returns
'SIOCADDRT: Invalid argument'.  I double checked and re-compiled
insuring that I enable Networking support and TCP/IP support although
I did not enable gatewaying, multicasting, firewalling, accounting,
or tunneling (don't ever remember enable such in 1.2.xx kernels). Do
I need to any of these in order to get my networking/route working
again.
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

        Please type "ifconfig" to check local-loop and
ethernet cards.

"ifconfig" returns exactly the same thing under kernel 1.2.x and
1.3.x.  It shows valid I.P. addresses for both the localhost
(127.0.0.1) and the ethernet cards.  Running route under 1.2.x returns
valid routes and under 1.3.x returns no routes.  Trying to add a route
(as is done on boot up or manually) is when the SIOCADDRT error is
returned.
