Description of problem:
Hi, the problem is pretty simple..
I upgraded from RH 7.1 to roswell beta 2 and then run the up2date to be
updated up to the minute - now my network stopped working..
All what I get right now when I'm trying /sbin/services network start - I
get "illegal seek". example:
kde21]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart
Shutting down interface eth0: [ OK ]
Setting network parameters: [ OK ]
Bringing up interface lo: [ OK ]
Cannot open netlink socket: Illegal seek
in /var/log/messaes it looks like this:
Sep 14 05:18:20 badboy network: Shutting down interface eth0: succeeded
Sep 14 05:18:20 badboy sysctl: net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0
Sep 14 05:18:20 badboy sysctl: net.ipv4.conf.all.rp_filter = 0
Sep 14 05:18:20 badboy sysctl: kernel.sysrq = 1

It sounds like you rebuilt your kernel without NETLINK and RTNETLINK support -
is that the case?
Wow, I thought that this bug was closed long time ago.
Yes, you were right and I handled that long time ago, but I thought I asked to
close this bug.
Could you close it please?
Closed as requested ;-).
Read ya, Phil
