If you look at /proc/interrupts, do you see the counter go up when you
try to send packets?

"Destination host unreachable" isn't a routing error; it means that
the packets couldn't be delivered for some reason.

The card is being assigned to a PCI interrupt, which is why you can't
override it by fiddling with config.opts.  You could put:


in /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia, to force the driver to use an ISA interrupt

Just checking: you're using a real network cable, right?  Not a piece
of phone cord?  I'm asking because I've had maybe five bug reports in
the past two weeks, that turned out to be from people using old phone
cords or home-made cables.

Message Administration

This form allows you to delete, move, or copy one or more messages. You can move messages by copying and deleting the original. The action will be applied to the messages you select above and all replies to those selected messages.

If you want to copy or move messages, specify the HyperNews path of a destination forum or message that all messages will be copied or moved to. The destination must already exist, so maybe create it first.

Path of Destination (a Forum or Message): (e.g. "test")

Notify Subscribers at destination

If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages

Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
