When Installing TurboLinux Server 6.0.20SE I get this error after
configuring my network settings:
SIOCSIFFLAGS Error! Resource temporarily Unavailable
So after completing the install I try to select the ethernet device (eth0)
it remains inactive
Any Ideas? Thanks a bunch -Eron

prolly some other device doesnt want to share resources with this card :-]
check with
cat /proc/interrupts
cat /proc/ioports
cat /proc/dma
to see what devices try to share resources they shouldnt

not givin up, now thats the spirit...

ok. first we gotta check something else.
reboot, and check ure BIOS.
there should be an option "plug and play operating
system". Turn the option off.
Reboot and see if u can get eth0 up now.

If that doesnt do it, then check /var/log messages about driver errors for ure networkcard. it should say
something about "eth0"

Now from the commandline execute w/o quotes:
"cat /proc/{interrupts,dma,ioports} > /tmp/system.status"
then
"less /tmp/system.status" to read it.
for each of these outputs there should NOT be two devices sharing the same range or number.

Tell me what errors it shows.

I had the same error - through your help, I was able to determine that the NIC and soundblaster were both trying to use IRQ 5. I unloaded the sb module, and the network fired up without a hitch. I'm not overly interested in having sound (the box is going to be a web server), but my next challenge is figuring out what to do with the sb...

Thanks for the help!
