I've just spent a while looking for answers for this on Dejanews, but so
far I'm still clueless, so apologies in advance...
I've just brought back a machine (RH 5.0, x86) that we lent to somebody
else. They had it on their network for the past few days no problem. Now I
can't get I back on ours.
On boot, I see:
SIOCADDRT: Invalid argument
just after the SMC-ultra card stuff comes up.
So, I type route -rn and see that the gateway for eth0 is given as 0.0.0.0,
so I ping my gateway address. No joy. It won't ping, and neither will any
other address. "Network unreachable."
I can see no problems with /etc/sysconfig/network - it's got all the values
it used to have before. I've even run up X and tried setting is all up from
the network control panel.
My views are not necessarily that of my employer's.
