Bringing up interface eth0... failed


http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=146166

I had this post on the install Mandrake forum, I received some good info, but I'm still not back on the net

I'm hoping someone in this forum is able to help me. I've tried so many work arounds, I am behind a Syslink hub, the Windoze computer is working the same, as before. The new Video card & motherboard operated the Mandrake 9.1 just fine, I must have done something to this 9.2, to affect the networking, not bringing up tulip.. I lost count after 8 installs to get this to the state it's in now. Happy with everything else

Hope someone can shed some light my way

I have a tulip clone. It loaded with 9.1 and WinXP fine. 10 beta2 killed it. if your'e running a 2.4 kernel, add this one word to /etc/modules :

tulip

Save the file and reboot. Happy surfing (like my optimism?)

If 2.6, add the word "tulip" to /etc/modprobe.preload

Reboot. Surf. Good luck

Thanks for the reply vectordrake, tulip is in the file /etc/modules allready. The reading I am doing is helping me understand Linux better, but no ideas as to my problem now

You say you're connected through a hub. What is the hub connected to? I didn't see where you stated your full network hardware setup, and nobody (including myself) bothered to ask. That's just not gonna get me into the boy scouts! . Could you tell me about your hardware? Hub? Router? Connection? What works? What doesn't?

Specifically, I'd like to know what hardware is routing you to the glorious internet. Also, I'd like to know what is doing the NAT if you are sharing the connection. As well, could you post an ifconfig output and your lsmod at the time (you can edit out the other devices if you wish) and the line returned for lspci -v. I find it strange that up to 9.1 you were cookin' and 9.2 killed it (I really liked 9.1 - but 10 is really kewl - it kept me with this RPM shit. )

edited for spelling, which made no sense. I had to change it to make a real word again.

I have the same device. Its a router, then. Is it using DHCP? Or have you configured it to route static addresses? The two entries for the same device are confusing me a bit, but it may be okay. The inet address looks screwey. Your router has a default addy of 192.168.1.1. If your DHCP request has been answered, you should have gotten an IP in that range. Try to set it static and see if it'll connect (but before you do that, try to ping the router from the 9.2 box to see if they are actually talking). Then, try to ping somewhere on the internet (use an IP address). If the IP resolves, try a fully qualifies domain name. If it doesn't connect, you are connected, but need a nameserver listed. I usually use Rogers' nameservers in all my DNS settings anyways. Try Shaw's. You should be able to surf after that, if this is the case.

BTW, I did an update at the cooker last night and every package came in with no broken dependancies. When I booted into Mandrake tonight, the default 9.2 bootsplash that had been there has been replaced with one for 10. Its close. I can feel it. If you get no satisfaction with 9.2 (I will not stop digging with you, though), you may want to replace it with 10. Its coming out of beta fast.

I pined the windoze box = Network is unreachable
In DOS ipconfig -all=
DNS 64.59.160.13
64.59.160.15

IP addres 192.168.1.100
Subnetmask 255.255.255.0
DHCPserver 192.168.1.1

Maybe this extra info will help

I'm still thinking it's something to do with tulip not being loaded properly, but the /etc/modules.cong has tulip listed - it has to be simple answer somewhere

Thanks again

Is that the IP of the Linux box? You should be able to ping the router if so. The tulip module has to be loaded properly, as your lsmod shows it exists. To further that evidence, the interface shows up in your ifconfig. It has to be something else. Do you have a software firewall enabled?

I do not have a firewall running
The IP address 192.168.1.100 is the windoze dox

I pinged this address again Network is unreachable

I pinged 127.0.0.1 & it gave me:
64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.031 ms
now it is at
64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_seq=460 ttl=64 time=0.050 ms
and it is still running icmp_seq=560 and still going

Looks like a problem with the tulip driver, then. That's the one I need and use. Perhaps you have a clone like my Linksys Etherfast. I got lucky and it worked, but I was close to putting the old 10 BaseT D-Link I had in there.

No you can surf Congrats. Nice to have a resolution (I felt the same way when I got a MS optical mouse. It just worked. I think that MS should concentrate on making peripherals. They make excellent HIDs)
