Smile Internet not working in fedora 8 after an overnight yum update


Hello all...My network connection was working fine until one night when I started the usual yum updatesd .Since then I have'nt been able to connect to the internet...the icon in the system tray has turned red and says "No Network Connection" ...When I click activate on eth0 under devices tab I get the following error

SIOCSIFFLAGS: Invalid argument Failed to bring up eth0


Please help me to get internet working...Many thanks in advance.

Lets see some info. Post output of these commands.
/sbin/ifconfig -a
/sbin/lspci -v ( Only need the portion of the network ethernet card in question )
/sbin/lsmod
uname -r

Now the contents of the file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

In the mean time since you mention yum I am guessing the kernel got updated. Boot up with the old kernel and see if networking is working. If it does then post the output of the command
/sbin/lsmod
uname -r
for that session. please mark asked data to whaich kernel they apply too.

wow that is bad because I bet after the update your old eth0 is now eth1. why a serious kernel patch? and this will get a bunch of people telling me I am crazy but it is your eth0 should be your hard line dsl and eth1 should be wireless if you only have two cards if not then old kernel. if you are a DSL then the problem is your eth0 card is not being loaded try doing a direct modprobe In a terminal type lspci as root. this will show your card then insmod or modprobe the module for it. make sure you type dmesg and see if it is being loaded. and look for the errors. good luck. so the up grade changed your init configuration. if that is the problem then reconfigure your net card in yum so yum nows to load it when you boot. it is done with the init
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Invalid argument Failed to bring up eth0 <---this means card module is not loaded Module (driver)

Here is the data that pertains to the nic. What is odd it is pointing eth0 as an Alias IP setup. Here is what I would do.
Rename the ifcfg-eth0:1 to ifcfg-eth0.
Edit that file and change the DEVICE=eth0:1 to DEVICE=eth0.
Also add the line ONBOOOT=yes to the ifcfg-eth0 file.
Save and exit.
Reboot

A lot of the things I see is because of NetworkManager service. Some of the glitches the service daemon does. Never can determine anything common between hardware I have seen that it does odd things on. If it was me and all this machine is going to do is this network setup is turn NetworkManager service off. If you wish then as root.
/sbin/service NetworkManager stop
/sbin/chkconfig --level 345 NetworkManager off
Code:
[root@localhost ~]# /sbin/ifconfig -a

I tried exactly as you said..but it seems to be giving the same error. I was able to configure it back and get internet working with the last kernel.I ve turned off the NetworkManager update feature...If there is any other way I could get it working with my updated kernel please suggest...Thanks for your help so far

Got me to the cause. Seems to be issues with the latest rpm kernels out on networking.
If you get it post back your fix. Might use the search tool and search the kernel version in question.

I've had some problems with networking after updating as well - the 2.6.24 kernel seems to have some problems. The module I'm having problems with is the r8169 module for Realtek, I see you have the 8139 module, (Kernel modules: 8139cp, 8139too). If you are still having problems, I saw a fix somewhere else:

rmmod 8139too
insmod 8139too media=0x01 (might try modprobe 8139too media=0x01)

Also, a quick fix for the r8139 module is to uninstall and reinstall

rmmod r8139
modprobe r8139

and networking (internet) will work-this is only temporary though, and needs to done after every bootup.

the 2.6.24 kernel is totally different then the 2.6.23. I have been working on the new X86 asm problem but it is better to get a whole system built around it. Slackware was testing it and after talking with a few people and Pat (by the way pat if your reading this the bike is still being built.) I see they have gone to a 12.1 update for slackware the kernel 2.6.24 is good but has some working out to do as a upgrade. i386 is a symlink to x86 and has caused some script issues for me.

I am showing issues after a yum update with my wireless card. If i try and activate wlan0, my box crashes. Completely stuck.

However, the machine was unplugged before it could reboot after the yum update. Could this have any effect on the problem?
