Hi , I have a Hitachi Solution engine board for which i m trying to get the Networking. I have built the Root file system from scratch having all the necessary entries for Networking. ( i installed all redhat packages for building the Root file system - nettools for Networking)
But still the Network is not up.( this i have verified by pinging from other systems, Even arping is not working)
I have checked for the important networking scripts such as
\etc\sysconfig\networking\devices\ifcfg-eth0 \etc\sysconfig\networking\devices\ifcfg-eth1 All are fine.basically there are two interfaces in my board
Some Details:1 . when I type ifconfig i m able to get all the information required such as IP address and others.
Except the Mac address The mac address looks something like this.00:00:00:00:ff:ff
Is it correct to have like this??
- when i type arp i got the output like this
hardware address incomplete
- When i tried to do arping it gets failed.
- i checked the dmesg.
it shows something like TX error: dirty_bit bla bla.......
I feel the problem is with finding the Mac address...
Please share with me you views and suggestions and any other ideas.
BTW, im a newbie to Linux Networking .
Although this topic is relevant to Networking, I have posted here so that any body having expericne with Solution engine boards can help me.
Thanks in advance.
