Re: What is SIOCSIFFLAGS, and when will he be back?



I have a Linksys LNE100TX, also tulip driver, and get the same error if
I reboot from Windows into Linux. Problem is fixed if I start Linux from
a cold boot as opposed to restarting from windows. Have you tried this?

-- 
1. Start "Also Sprach Zarathustra" by Richard Strauss on your CD player.
2. At the climax of the "Sunrise" section -- just before the cymbal crash
on the C-major chord -- try to ping the first machine by IP address.
3. If it works... congratulations! Your intranet is now up and running.
