I've grepped the howtos and read the man pages, but can't find an
answer to this problem:
eth0 shows up properly in the boot messages. (It's a PCMCIA card,
cardmgr handles it just fine). ifconfig tells me that eth0 is there,
unspec addr:[NONE SET] Bcast:[NONE SET] Mask:[NONE SET]
This doesn't alarm me since the dhclient hasn't been run yet.
# dhclient eth0
I am told:
SIOCSIFNETMASK: Cannot assign requested address
SIOCSIFBRDADDR: Cannot assign requested address
SIOCADDRT: File exists
eth0: not found
What does this message mean, and what should I do to fix it?
