http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, I have single board computer with 4 built in Ethernet channels but I need 5 so I have added a quad Ethernet card. I have tried to use the interface file in /etc/networks/ to setup the network. I get a message that says: debian:/etc/network# /etc/init.d/networking restart Reconfiguring network interfaces.../etc/network/interfaces:20: too many parameters for iface line ifdown: couldn't read interfaces file "/etc/network/interfaces" /etc/network/interfaces:20: too many parameters for iface line ifup: couldn't read interfaces file "/etc/network/interfaces" failed. My interface file looks like: # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface auto eth0 eth1 eth2 eth3 eth4 eth5 eth6 eth7 mapping eth0 eth1 eth2 eth3 eth4 eth5 eth6 eth7 map 00:40:9e:00:9d:b2 lan map 00:40:9e:00:9d:b0 front1 map 00:40:9e:00:9d:b1 front2 map 00:40:9e:00:9d:b3 back2 map 00:10:73:01:40:f4 ipx0 map 00:10:73:01:40:f5 ipx1 map 00:10:73:01:40:f6 ipx2 map 00:10:73:01:40:f7 ipx3 iface lan inet dhcp iface ipx0 ipx static frame 802.2 netnum 0x001000 iface ipx1 ipx static frame 802.2 netnum 0x002000 iface ipx2 ipx static frame 802.2 netnum 0x003000 iface ipx3 ipx static frame 802.2 netnum 0x004000 What am I doing wrong? debian:/etc/network# uname -a Linux debian 2.6.29.6-rt23-rev03 #1 SMP Tue Sep 1 07:30:49 EDT 2009 i686 GNU/Linux debian:/etc/network# Thanks Robert (HowTos)
