RTNETLINK and ifup


I was trying to configure a static IPv6 address on a RHEL 5 box and now keep getting the following:

RTNETLINK answers: File exists

after an ... # ifdown eth0; ifup eth0

What does the error message mean?

Here's the ifcfg-eth0:

# Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] 79c970 [PCnet32 LANCE]
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=none
HWADDR=00:0c:29:ff:e7:da
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
USERCTL=no
PEERDNS=yes
IPV6INIT=yes
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
IPADDR=1
GATEWAY=192.168.0.1
