Strange Error at boot !


When I boot into Mandrake 9.1 I get this error. Keep in mind that I still get to the desktop !

"Could not look up the internet address for x1-6-00-e0-29-5e-12-c7 . This will prevent GNOME from operating correctly. It may be possible to correct the problem by adding x1-6-00-e0-29-5e-12-c7 to the file /etc/host."

Now I opened that file and all that is in it is "127.0.0.1 local host "

What do I need to add ????

That is a MAC address - I don't know why it says gnome wouldn't work.

What are your ethernet settings? how many cards do you have? do you use them all?

Well it still lets me get into the desktop.

I have a SOYO Dragon Plus MOBO with on board lan and I get my internet from the USB using a SMC EZ Connect coming from a cable modem ! The lan is connected to my girlfriends computer to share the internet , and that I can do !!

Its just this crazy error. It even happened to me when I used RedHat !!

I just want to get away from Windows ! I know it will be a hard road, but well worth it !!

What is your hostname set to?
Try setting it differently and making sure that it is also in the /etc/hosts file after:
127.0.0.1 localhost
