ARP called for own address??

Post by Roscinan » Mon, 01 Jul 1996 04:00:00



Ever since upgrading to the latest kernel 2.0.0, I've been getting this
msg in the debug log, about ARP look-up on own address, last msg repeated
xx (like hundreds) times..

  Is this something trivial?  I can only assume it might be sendmail
causing these msgs (they are kernel msgs, no real identification is being
logged about which process is causing it..)

Any info how to track down what's going on?

TIA

Hmm, I have a plip between linux & dos, but there's nothing in
resolv.conf pointing at either one...

Hi, friends:

I intend to install Linux from CD-ROM, however, it seems there's no CD-ROM
driver for Hitachi CD-ROM which is with my PC. Any advice on how to make
the Hitachi CD-ROM works under linux?

Thanx.

Yes I have a few :
1)  Is this CD-ROM a IDE(ish) type drive with it's own adapter ?
        If No Is it a scsi model ? if yes no problem
2)  if so does it use a chipset found on adapters that are suported  ?
        if yes try the one for the chipset thats close to the one on the
adapter.
3) Try and get the specs ... And start writing a hack for the drive.

Yes, it usually means someone else is using the same IP address as you
are.  Find them and ask them to go to your network admin and get an
official address.  (Alternatively if you are the one using the address
illegally go the the admin yourself).

Well, how would someone else be using my address, except me??  I have a
plip line, which is in the 192.* address range, I have linux aliased as
both a 192.* address and an internet.  I need to know how to track down
who what where the error comes from.  Since I *AM* the sysadmin of this
particular linux, going to myself about faking my own address isn't very
helpful =)

How do I track down which process is causing this error??

Had the same happen here. New setup-script seems to set things up differently.
Don't remember exactly how I fixed it.

Also I put "localnet 192.168.0.0" in /etc/networks.
One of those did the trick.

Hi, I think you have to recompile the kernel, and say "y" to the question:
"Support for ATAPI CD-ROM?"

Good luck

Sergio.

Check your hardware!  I had your same problem with _my_ Hitachi (EIDE
ATAPI) 8x CDROM drive on my brand spanking new machine -- it ran fine
under Dos/Win95 but was NOT seen at all from Linux.  Finally I opened
the box and found out that the drive had been _cabled_ as Master on the
second EIDE channel, but _jumpered_ as Slave.  Just moving the jumper
(I had no docs for the drive, but there is a rather clear diagram on
the drive itself) so it indicated "Master" solved the problem.

Apparently it must be a frequent error on the part of people who do
hardware assembly, since the drives come jumpered from the factory that
way, and under Dos/Windows it often makes no difference if the jumper
is left in the wrong position.

If that is not the case, then there are various other things you
can try, for example try to force the kernel to recognize your
CDROM drive by using the "hdc=cdrom" parameter on the boot line
(that's if your drive is master on the secondary EIDE channel;
it would be hdb=cdrom if it were the slave on the primary).  I
think comp.os.linux.hardware is probably the best place to discuss
this, actually.

1. ARP: arp called for own IP address HELP

Hi,

New to Linux, running FT.

NE2000 ether=10,0x240,eth0

During the bootup sequence I get the error

ARP: arp called for own IP address

I understand this translates as ARP asked for address' and
got its own address back.

After the login prompt appears I don't see the error again.

There are no conflicting IP address' on the net and the error
occurs even if the FS is not connected to the net.

Any help welcome

Be in touch.

Mark
