YDL fails to set loopback interface :-(

Post by Morten Reippuert Knudse » Tue, 08 Jul 2003 08:03:29



I've installede YDL 3 on my G4 Gigabit (usually use OSX and ocasionaly
debian) in order to be able to support at friends brand new PC, with Redhat
9. Hovever it simply stalls durring boot while trying to set up the
loopback interface. If i bybass network initialisation it boots fine...

Whats wrong?

Besides, if you can't get a decent kernal panic         <icq://131382336>
or two in a month, what's the point of living?          <aim://reippuert>

 
 
 

1. SIOCGIFFLAGS fails loopback interface

When I call ioctl() with SIOCGIFFLAGS for interface "lo" (loopback) it
fails.

strerror() says: No such device

The same code works for normal intefaces (ethX). Any ideas why this is so?

The reason I need this is to test whether the interface is multicast-capable
(flag IFF_MULTICAST).

2. passwd generator?

3. Bringing up loopback interface: failed

4. Voodoo3 PCI drivers and XFree86 3-3-3.3 ?

5. set up loopback interface

6. Matrox Millenium 2

7. loopback interface set to disabled

8. UNIX STREAMS

9. gcc hugeprogram.c -o hugeprogram.c :-( :-( :-(

10. Samba: Can't get browsing to work :-( :-( :-(

11. "Bandwidth" of loopback interface?

12. Snoop - loopback interface?
