This is my first post one what appears to be an excellent place for a newbie such as myself, so be nice :-)
I had a problem with a full hard drive which crashed my SuSE 7.1 Linux server. I have cleaned out the disk and sorted out the disk problems, but I am now faced with two network cards that fails to work.
If I ping localhost I get the error message
PING localhost (127.0.0.1):56 data bytes
ping: sendto: Operation not permitted
ping: wrote localhost 64 chars, ret=-1
If I ping the interface I get
PING 192.168.40.90: 56 data bytes
ping: sendto: Invalid argument
ping: wrote 192.168.40.90 64 chars, ret=-1
I am running IPTables, but also get this error message when I have removed all blocking....
Other things I have noticed is that I get the following in my boot.msg file
Setting up network device eth0
insmod: insmod: a module named eepro100 already exists
insmod: insmod: insmod eth0 failed
As of yet I cannot find any more error messages out of place !!!
I am now stuck and in need of further help.
Questions asked will be answered !!
