I just installed Fedora as an upgrade to RedHat 9.0. I lost my internet connection.
Upon booting I get the following information:
ipchains and ip tables can not be used together [Warning]
Determining IP information for eth1...failed; no link present. Check cable?
But I know the cable is working.
When I look at the network information I get the following for eth1 (the device I am using for the internet connection):
Device Type Device Status
3c900B-TPO [Etherlink XL] Ethernet Eth1 ok
Active profile: common
If I try to activate this (it is listed as inactive) I get the following message:
redhat-config-network: Error saving configuration!
[Errno 2] No such file or directory: //etc/sysconfig/network-scripts//ifcfg-lo.rpmsave
If I do cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and do ls, what I can see is that file (ifcfg-lo.rpmsave) but it is surrounded by a brownish-red background which is flashing. If I do "less ifcfg-lo.rpmsave" I get the message, "No such file or directory."
Can anyone tell me what is happening and how to re-establish my network connection?
