Resource temporarily unavailable


I am using
Linux version 2.6.3-16mdk (qateam@updates.mandrakesoft.com) (gcc version 

(Mandrake Linux 10.0 3.3.2-6mdk)) #1 Fri Aug 13 16:33:14 MDT 2004

and sometimes (usually the first time i try), I get

connect: Resource temporarily unavailable

when trying to make network connections.

This happens (for example) if I do a ping www.bbc.co.uk - the first time it 
fails, then

it works:

[root@scoop proc]# ping www.bbc.co.uk
connect: Resource temporarily unavailable
[root@scoop proc]# ping www.bbc.co.uk
PING www.bbc.co.uk ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from www5.thdo.bbc.co.uk ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=248 
time=27.7 ms

--- www.bbc.co.uk ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 1 received, 0% packet loss, time 0ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 27.709/27.709/27.709/0.000 ms

It is not limited to ping - looking at my postfix logs, it has been 
affecting Postfix

as well:

syslog:Sep  2 11:30:12 scoop postfix/smtp[16033]: A26F62CCFE: 

relay=none, delay=31999, status=deferred (connect to 

Resource temporarily unavailable)

I thought it may be an interupt clash, but a cat of /proc/interupt shows 
that the NIC

has a interput to itself:

I have googled a lot for this, and cannot find any answers. Can anyone tell 
me where to

start looking please?

Forgot to mention, my ethernet chipset is

eth0: RealTek RTL8139 at 0xe194e000, 00:10:a7:07:a8:f4, IRQ 21
eth0:  Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8139C'

(The motherboard has onboard gigabyte ethernet, but I couldnt get Linus to 
recognise it, so I put in a cheap 100 card)

See answer given in first news group you posted to.

net etiquette/Newsgroup tip: 

Multi-posting is considered antisocial on Usenet.

If you want to send the same message to more than one newsgroup, CROSSPOST!
And if you crosspost, provide a Followup newsgroup.

Some will argue that you not even crosspost because of the amount/type
of newsgroups that we have today.

As an example to post to "comp.os.linux.security", and
"alt.security", use the following Newsgroups line:
Newsgroups: comp.os.linux.security,alt.security
Followup-To: comp.os.linux.security

See http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/usenet/xpost.html

You conserve resources on NNTP servers, and other readers
see the follow up answers and do not have to provide the same answer.
Also, once a reader has "read" a message in one group, they do
not have to see it again unless someone has provided a follow up.

Sorry! I thought that crossposting was considered 'bad', thats why I went to

If you cross post, once a message has been read in one forum, you won't see
it again in another.  If you multipost, each message will be read, even
though it's identical to the other copies.

linux pthread_cancel resource temporarily unavailable
Hi, I have a problem cancelling threads with pthread_cancel under Linux. The logic is the following: Start a few threads in a mother thread which read different device files. The thread which finnishes first will cancel all sister threads. The mother thread joins all sister threads and repeats the whole procedure. This works without problems for a while, but after some time (in which the program does not need to run) it is not possible to cancel sister threads anymore and pthread_cancel is returning "resource temporarily unavailable" when the program is run the next time...

Doing fork: Resource temporarily unavailable
Hello, I would like to use the xcscope tool inside XEmacs. I have installed Cygwin/Windowmaker and XEmacs 21.4 on W2k and it works fine .

Resource temporarily unavailable launching idle under cygwin
Hello everyone. Trying to run idle from a cygwin session on Win2k (yuk, but I must) I'm getting the following error message. It seems something more Windoze-driven that Python driven, and I'm not and don't wanna be an expert on that OS. Since the group has a good mix of users in different platforms, perhaps someone can help. Python runs fine, my programs run fine, and I can edit in vim and run my code. However, would be nice to have idle available from time to time Thanks in advance!! $ idle 23367 [main] python2.4 1668 C:\cygwin\bin\python2.4.exe: *** fatal error - C:\ c...
