I'm running a dual boot laptop. Problem is when I boot to Linux I can't get the NIC properly configured, thus no network connection.
Here's what happens:
At boot I get an IRQ 11 disable warning.
system boots up, everything runs fine with the exception of my NIC.
I ifconfig to see what the configuration is, it shows:
inet addr:172.17.65.38 Bcast:172.17.65.63 Mask:255.255.255.192
I need to change the Bcast and Mask to
When I enter
"ifconfig eth0 inet addr 172.17.65.38 netmask addr 255.255.192.0 broadcast addr 255.255.192.0"
I get a response of "Unknow Host"
Thinking it may be an IRQ issue, I tried to change the IRQ
"ifconfig eth0 interrupt:5:
Host name lookup failure
What am I missing or entering worng ??
This is a reasonably random guess, but what's the output of hostname -fqdn?
hostname -v retunrs bookrunner.nwl.local
bookrunner = my local host
nwl.local = my local network
My desktop, which is running fine shows
hostname --fqdn gives gives me
localhost.localdomain (for both systems)
That's odd. I er, haven't a clue. :oops:
Edit: Looking over that, actually I do. What interface is this on, eth0? You don't seem to be actually specifying it, might be worth a try.
Tried specifying eth0 made no difference in the results
Humm, must be something else then. I used netconfig and did get the IP, Bcast, and netmask set to the proper network structure, thanks cal1
But dang it, it still gives me an error ..
Anyone know how to change the IRQ ??
mmm it must be something else....i dont think it has to be with the IRQ ...the " host name lookup failure "happened to me too and i dont have any irq trouble
Re: Ifconfig error
I guess the command which you are entering is wrong...you dont have to specify addr.
"ifconfig eth0 inet 172.17.65.38 netmask 255.255.192.0 broadcast 255.255.192.0"
