Thread: ifconfig eth0 returns SIOCSIFFLAGS: invalid argument

    ifconfig eth0 returns SIOCSIFFLAGS: invalid argument

    Hell all,
    I have a problme bringing up the eth0 interface on a laptop running Fedora Core 3 with the 2.6.9-1.667 kernel.

    I believe the nic (rhine II ) is properly installed, as I can ping the local host.

    But when I do the following;
    #ifconfig eth0 192.168.10.3 netmask 255.255.255
    SIOCSIFFLAGS: invalid argument


    I don't know what this means. I've looked around googling the error but no luck.
    I get the same error from the graphical network tool system-config-network.

    A cable is properly connected to the nic,
    #ethtool eth0
