Mandrake linux 9.1, eth0:9, and weird messages


K, so I just upgraed to Mandrake 9.1 (I like it). But I kinda have a problem: I can't connect to the internet.

K it works like this: I have one ethernet card in my system (eth0), however, when my pc boots up to linux, when it brings up the eth0 interface, it takes quite a while. When it finally comes up, it says something like this:

Found IP address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx for eth0:9

Probing serial ports for xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 1

Probing serial ports for xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 2

Probing serial ports for xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 3

Probing serial ports for xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 4

Claiming ownernship of xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx


And then it continues with the boot up. However, when I go into Drakconf, and then to the network setup section, it says that my eth0 interface is up, but my internet isn't. I try to connect to the internet using the button, but it fails.

When I do ifconfig, I get the inforrmation, but eth0 doesn't have an IP, but eth0:9 does. This IP is also different to the windows IP too. Also, I do not have loopback running on eth0:9, but eth0.

What is eth0:9, why does it have an IP and not eth0, and can I use that to connect to the internet instead of eth0??

My pc runs both linux and Windoze XP

eth0 is your network card. eth0:9 is an alias for your network card. eth0 and eth0:9 can have different ip addresses, even though they're the same physical network card.

I would use Mandrake Control Center to delete eth0:9 (and any other aliases, and eth0 if possible) and then start over by running the internet connection wizard.
