Networking Broken 2.6.0-test4 - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

    Default Networking Broken 2.6.0-test4

    Hello all.

    I'm having a problem right now after compiliing a 2.6.0-test4 kernel.
    Networking doesn't work. I'm using Mandrake 9.1.

    I've got a Realtek ethernet card, using 8139too. I've tried compiling it
    in and having it as a module, and I always get the same error:

    Sep 1 21:58:34 localhost network: Setting network parameters: succeeded
    Sep 1 21:58:34 localhost ifup: arping: socket: Address family not
    supported by protocol
    Sep 1 21:58:34 localhost ifup: Error, some other host already uses
    address 127.0.0.1.

    It's frustrating, because everything else in 2.6 works perfectly. Feels
    more responsive, and it's certainly a lot leaner than the installed
    Mandrake kernel.

    I've looked up the error, all the remedies I've seen haven't worked for
    me. I do also get a bunch of modprobe errors when I boot into 2.6, but
    not when I boot 2.4. Possibly just things to take out of the modules.conf
    when I get it all working?

    af_packet support is in as a module, I've tried it compiled in as well.
    Doesn't help! I haven't assigned anything to 127.0.0.1 other than
    localhost in the hosts file too.

    Can anybody help me please?

    Did you upgrade to the new module-init-tools ?

    [url]ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/rusty/modules/[/url]

    Did you patch the kernel to the latest 2.6.0-test4-bk9 ? It seems to work
    better. At first my dhcp did not work. Now it does.

    Does your X run ? It does not for me.
