    Subject2.0.36 network failure...
    Hi there.

    The enclosed was originally posted privately to some contacts asking
    for advice, but unfortunately, none have any idea what's going on.
    Although the error is appearing when ifconfig is run, it appears to be
    some sort of kernel issue, hence my posting here...

    As per the original message, any further information can be furnished,
    but I don't feel like spamming this list with tons of stuff when most
    of it is almost certainly irrelevant...

    Best wishes from Riley.


    Recently, when I reboot my system, I see some error messages towards
    the end of the boot procedure. I traced through the various scripts in
    the /etc/rc.d tree and found the line causing the error, but would
    appreciate advice on what needs doing about it.

    For reference, the the boot messages are as follows, with the lines
    beginning "DBG:" containing the commands causing the appearance of the
    error messages in question after the shell has finished its expansion:

    ===8<=== CUT ===>8===
    sysctl: ip forwarding off
    Swansea University Computer Society IPX 0.34 for NET3.035
    IPX Portions Copyright (c) 1995 Caldera, Inc.

    Mounting remote filesystems.
    Starting system loggers: syslogd klogd
    Starting at daemon: atd
    Starting cron daemon: crond
    ===8<=== CUT ===>8===

    At the stage the error messages appear, the script being executed is
    /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup if that helps.

    System summary: Intel P166, 128M RAM, RedHat 5.0 upgraded to 5.1,
    kernel 2.0.36, glibc-2.0.7-19.i386.rpm, and the command "ifconfig
    --version" returns the following text:

    Q> net-tools 1.47
    Q> ifconfig 1.36 (1998-10-31)

    Anything else needed can be advised.

    Best wishes from Riley.
