Ah. The dreaded 'neighbour table overflow' message.
(I've just spent 2 weeks fighting this one. A real B-errormesage-FH.)
This means that your system is unable to resolve some of its component
machines. But which? (In my case, usually localhost.)
Check very carefully the contents of:
Also check that you can ping every machine on the network.
Then make sure that you have *explicitly* given correct addresses,
netmasks, and gateway address in /etc/network/interfaces for both
ethernet and local loopback connections.
(see man interfaces for examples)
What does ifconfig tell you?
(You should see details of both ethernet and local loopback connections
- -- if not, you've got a problem.)
If necessary, do an
ifconfig 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0 up
to try to kick local loopback into life.
(If it does, add the address and netmask info lines to to the lo iface
in your /etc/network/interfaces file.)
