Description Leobardo Terpán 2007-04-10 19:21:45 EDT
Description of problem:
I've been running fc6 on kernel-2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6, yesterday I made an 
upgrade to kernel-2.6.20-1.2933.fc6 by means of yum-updatesd, After update I
wasn't able to connect to internet, apparently eth0 is unable to connect because
my ip is already occupied by other host. 

Network can be manually activated by means of system-config-network:

[root@lterpan etc]# /etc/init.d/network stop
Interrupción de la interfaz eth0:                          [  OK  ]
Interrupción de la interfaz de loopback:                   [  OK  ]
SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device
[root@lterpan etc]# /etc/init.d/network start
Activación de la interfaz de loopback:                     [  OK  ]
Activando interfaz eth0:  sysfs class device: Permission denied
Error, algún otro host ya usa la dirección 192.168.X.XX.
[root@lterpan etc]# ping 192.168.X.XX
connect: La red es inaccesible
[root@lterpan etc]# system-config-network
