Over the weekend one my servers went down due to extended power failure.
The file system reports clean, but something has gone sideways with
networking. The server is a Dell 2950 running 7.0 release, and it's been
working fine for well over a year. It uses the BCE driver. Ifconfig
shows it to be up and active and configured with the correct IP, mask
and gateway, but I can't ping anything.
I've tested the ethernet connection with a nearby machine and it works.
I also booted the 2950 from an Ubuntu live CD and the NIC worked, so i
don't think it's a hardware issue.
Is there a way I can rebuild the driver without having to rebuild the
