What is SIOCSIFFLAGS, and when will he be back?
Linux has stopped talking to my ethernet card (Kingston KNE100TX, tulip
driver). The probem seems to be in ifconfig, which reports:
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Resource temporarily unavailable
I run a dual boot system, and it works fine from Windoze 98. It used to
run, some weeks ago, in Linux too, but I neglected Linux for a few weeks,
and when I tried it now again--this! I honestly don't remember changing
anything in the interim; I certainly haven't opened the computer case.
Since I don't know what SIOCSIFFLAGS are, I'm completely stumped about
where to look next. Short of clearing the disk and reinstalling
everything, but that's one of the things I was hoping Linux would save me
As shown below, the tulip driver doesn't seem to be complaining, and
ifconfig has all the right IP addresses and routes.
Any ideas what's going on here? Thanks!
