    Hi
    The code snippet below is where the error is coming from.
    /*
    674 * This does both peername and sockname.
    675 */
    676 int inet_getname(struct socket *sock, struct sockaddr *uaddr,
    677 int *uaddr_len, int peer)
    678 {
    679 struct sock *sk = sock->sk;
    680 struct inet_sock *inet = inet_sk(sk);
    681 struct sockaddr_in *sin = (struct sockaddr_in *)uaddr;
    682
    683 sin->sin_family = AF_INET;
    684 if (peer) {
    685 if (!inet->dport ||
    686 (((1 << sk->sk_state) & (TCPF_CLOSE | TCPF_SYN_SENT)) &&
    687 peer == 1))
    688 return -ENOTCONN;
    689 sin->sin_port = inet->dport;
    690 sin->sin_addr.s_addr = inet->daddr;
    691 } else {
    692 __be32 addr = inet->rcv_saddr;
    693 if (!addr)
    694 addr = inet->saddr;
    695 sin->sin_port = inet->sport;
    696 sin->sin_addr.s_addr = addr;
    697 }
    698 memset(sin->sin_zero, 0, sizeof(sin->sin_zero));
    699 *uaddr_len = sizeof(*sin);
    700 return 0;
    701 }

    It is part of the code within Linux that attempts to make a socket connection for Network related stuff. Line 687 is the peer=1 part of the error.
    So something is not correct with TCP/IP part of your distro. Do you have a proper connection with your Network/Internet etc.? If so it may be a 'run time error' which may not be critical. If not you should uninstall your network related services and reinstall them. Hope this helps. Cheers...
