Link encap:UNSPEC after k3b, cups , gftp install
Wasnt to sure where to put this, but i hope someone can help
I installed a few more programs to try on my debian etch 3.2(?) box, k3b, gftp, and i believe cups.. Everything was going great, i burnt one cd, played some tunes, browsed LQ for awhile, checked email etc.. Then i got sleepy and decided to shut down for the night. So i shut down my clarkconnect router, debian box and xp box... all is nice and quiet ZZZZZZ
I wake up, turn on the router xp and debian box and "starting MTA hangs....
uhoh.. finishes booting, i log in... startX no inet, gain cant connect hmmmm I check the router, dnsmasq is running and i can ping ip and dns.. XP box (wifes) is ok, no issues, can surf, ping etc... cant ping the debian box though (192.168.1.5)
So i go hunting some more. ifconfig eth0 gives
Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr XXXXXXXXXX
static ip of 192.168.1.5
ping loopback 127.0.0.1 is ok
cant ping names or ip i get "destination host unreachable" eith on internal ips (gateway 192.168.1.1) or XP box (192.168.1.2)
cat/etc/network/interfaces looks ok
iface etho inet static
my resolv.conf file seems ok
## i added my isp as well... i thought maybe something had changed as a requirement
cant ping either again, but can ping and surf via lynx (sp?) on my gateway
I have checked my switch, changed ports just in case, no change.
The only thing i can see different after i restarted is
instead of Link encap:ethernet
I thought that was alittle odd
there are no collision or dropped packets in ifconfig eth0 either
any suggestions on how to get this working again ?
Just Checked the ethernet cable, its working. Using knoppix now so i can at least chedk files on debian box... and i can surf in knoppicx now... debian still broke though
ifconfig shows below, note now in knoppix Link encap:Ethernet now not Link encap:UNSPEC
