Dear Sir,

Got a new PC.


One buy a new PC. Do not start vista at all.
I use gparted, resize MS Vista.

Install my Ubuntu in the free space. No problem with LAN Ethernet cable.
Ubuntu works great no issue. It can goes like that years...
Got X11 and reboot, thousands, a great machine

One day, I got a strange idea to anyhow give a try to MS vista.
Ok, grub, arrow key down, select vista
well, after 10min, very disappointed. Vista, I dont like at all. MS is getting worse, for my impression. tahts personal

OK, go back to Linux. !!
Man eth0 and no way to get Internet.

ifconfig eth0


SIOCSIFFLAGS: Resource temporarily unavailable


SIOCSIFFLAGS: Resource temporarily unavailable

I also tried to desactivate WIFI under MS Vista. It does no help

No way. And vista has Internet. Thank you Bill.

I have a realtek Lenovo IdeaCentre Q150

Please help considering this problem with the ifconfig response and behavior of Linux, since under Vista I have internet.

Kind regards
