Unhappy Very Weird - Can't ping anything including 127.0.0.1???? How Odd


Hi All,
It was all working i swear :-)

Not to sure whats happened for a ping to 127.0.0.1 to not work.
ifconfig looks fine and network is up and apears running. I've done a network restart and no change. Checked on icmp_echo_ignore_all and is set as normal, no firewalls are present including iptables (done a iptables -F anyway to be on the safe side). Run a ifconfig lo 127.0... blah blah and still nothing at all. I might restart and it all be fine but its a very interesting issue???

I really can't think what to do on this one at all to try and fix...Anyideas?

Dist:-PclinuxOS

Thanks all
:-) How very very strange

These entries are taken from the log at the times i was trying to restart just the networking:-
Apr 16 21:32:29 XINA ifplugd(eth0)[10424]: Executing '/etc/ifplugd/ifplugd.action eth0 down'.
Apr 16 21:32:30 XINA ifplugd(eth0)[10424]: Program executed successfully.

Apr 16 21:32:36 XINA ifplugd(eth0)[11349]: Program executed successfully.


Of course as expected a simple restart of the whole server and its back to normal but i'm still interested to know if anyone can guess why it wasn't working? On shutdown in the logs i've grabbed these messages which i'm just about to start googl'ing .. feel free to tell me if its anything to do with this issue if you know?
Apr 16 21:57:09 XINA ifplugd(eth0)[12150]: Executing '/etc/ifplugd/ifplugd.action eth0 down'.
Apr 16 21:57:09 XINA ifplugd(eth0)[12150]: client: Failed to open connection to system message bus: Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: Connection refused

Interesting....

Cheers :-)
