I am running FC3 and recently aMule just died on me. One day I ran out of disk space while it was running and it crashed (as you would probably expect). After this the client would load up and then shut down almost instantly.
Around the same time my internet connection died. I am reluctant to say "At the same time my internet connection died" but I am pretty sure it died after the next reboot. It is a LAN/broadband connection and works fine on my win2k box. I have disabled DNS server on the router - both PCs have fixed IP.
The Network Properties tool shows both "eth0" and "lo" interfaces as idle with eth0 having sent and received no packets, lo having received and sent 4.7MB of packets (immediately after startup).
does not list any devices to activate/deactivate.
output looks normal except that for eth0 TX sent = 0 and RX sent = 0. Entry for lo has something like inet6address ::1/128 and RX/TX bytes 4.7MiB again.
#ping 192.168.1.1 (router)
output is "Destination Host Unreachable"
Can anybody help me with where I should look next to find the problem?
I would start with your eth0 - does it actually have an IP?
Try setting it manually:
#ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.3 (or whatever IP you have)
Then check routing-table ('route' or 'netstat -r')
Post the output, as well as output of 'ifconfig'
So for some reason the defaul gateway is lost in routing-table.
Without a defalt gateway you'll get nowhere outside internal network (192.168.1.0).
One solution might be to add default gateway with a script, but then there is a risk it just hides the real problem - there must be a reason for dropping default gateway?
My guess is: reinstall first aMule, if it doesn't help reinstall routed too. (I know reinstalling seldom is the very best solution, but I have no other ideas.)
