A little more on this, because now I am really stumped. I have taken known good source, and moved it via CD to this machine. I rebuilt, and it exhibits exactly the same behavior, with both my kernel, and GENERIC. Pinging an IP on my lan results in ping: sendto: host is down. There are no active firewalls on this machine. When I ping another IP on the network, activity happens on the switch. I have swapped NIC's to a known working one from another machine, and it behaves identically. I have changed ports on the switch. About the only thing I haven't done is reinstall (which reminds me, I have a Freesbie disc around here somewhere to try) - but I'd rather that was a last resort. Meaning I'm open to any suggestions anyone might have about this.

I have a 6 stable box that I cvsup'd at around 5:15am central US time this morning. I did a buildworld and buildkernel on it after checking the UPDATING file and finding nothing since 6.2 release, ran mergemaster and rebooted, so I was a little surprised when it never came back. Once I gained physical access to the box, I discovered it had no apparent ability to open a sock - neither unix, nor udp nor tcp. I can ping localhost, but not other IP's on my network. X tells me host.domain.name:0 is a bad display name. So I need to know how to get things back up and running. Is this a known problem that has been fixed, or have I stumbled across something no one else has seen? As a side note, I have to give major props to all the developers - it sounds like my situation is really bad, but this is the first major problem I've had in over 7 years of tracking -STABLE of one version or another. Let me know if I can just cvsup another 6-stable box and burn it to a disc and copy it off on here, or what I need to do to fix this, because I'm lost. For the record: mergemaster -p make buildworld make buildkernel KERNCONF=mykernel make installworld make installkernel KERNCONF=mykernel mergemaster -a reboot came up with no sockets. At this point: rm -rf /usr/obj make clean make buildworld ...etc - still no sockets.
