"RTNETLINK answers: No such process" when starting networking


Hello

Running /etc/init.d/networking restart produces "RTNETLINK answers: No such process" after restoring the following /etc/network/interfaces file that was working OK from 5 April 09 to 24 July 09 when I moved it aside on de-configuring bridging, tap and tun. The re-installed versions of bridge-utils and uml-utilities are the same versions as used before. A "dist-upgrade" was done on 19 Aug 09.

Netsearching for the error messages got a few hits but nothing relevant to this configuration.

Here's the interfaces file
Code:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# eth0 is the physical interface.
# Bridging software will configure eth0 when it is added as a port to br0 (below)
# This minimal configuration avoids message "Ignoring unknown interface eth0=eth0"
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet manual
up ifconfig $IFACE 0.0.0.0 up
down ifconfig $IFACE down

# tap0 is a tap int the brige below for use by VirtualBox.  
# * Guest OS will configure, hence "manual"
# * VirtualBox will be running with owner c (and group vboxusers), hence user c
# * "ifconfig" is part of ifupdown package
# * "tunctl_user" is part of tunctl package 
auto tap0 
iface tap0 inet manual 
up ifconfig $IFACE 0.0.0.0 up 
down ifconfig $IFACE down 
tunctl_user c 

# tap1, same as tap0, for second VirtualBox VM
auto tap1 
iface tap1 inet manual 
up ifconfig $IFACE 0.0.0.0 up 
down ifconfig $IFACE down 
tunctl_user c 

# br0 is a bridge connecting physical interface eth0 to OS, tap0 and tap1
# * Bridge port stanzas must appear earlier
# * Static configuration
# * No need for spanning tree protocol (stp) because no other bridges on network
auto br0 
iface br0 inet static
address 192.168.1.47
network 192.168.1.0
netmask 255.255.255.0
broadcast 192.168.1.255
gateway 192.168.1.1
bridge_ports eth0 tap0 tap1
bridge_maxwait 0
bridge_stp off
Best
