    Backtrack->SIOCSIFADDR: No such device


    Im using backtrack and i can't get networking to restart. Everytime i type /etc/init.d/networking restart, it just gives me errors like the one in the title.Can you please help me? I've been trying to do this for days. Can anyone maybe give me detailed instructions on what to do?

    I want to set the network using static ip and everytime I do above it gives me error.I have already done /etc/init.d/networking start and edited the information /etc/network/interface as follows for eth0

    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
    address 172.16.27.5
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    network 172.16.27.0
    broadcast 172.16.27.255
    gateway 172.16.27.1
    I have also edit the /etc/resolv.conf file to set the nameserver as follows,
    nameserver 172.16.27.2
    The network still doesn't restart.What can I do?
