View Full Version : [ubuntu] sendmsg: operation not permitted

May 14th, 2009, 08:44 PM
Hi all,
I have a problem that my Ubuntu sometimes won't connect to network. When I run terminal and try to ping anything, I get this message:

ping: sendmsg: operation not permitted
(it repeats with every ping)

It only happens with Ubuntu 9.04, my previous 8.10 version didn't have this problem.

And what's weird, the problem only shows sometimes. It might or might not happen with every reboot. So there's a very ugly workaround: Restart. And if it's still not working, keep restarting until it works.
But I hope you agree that this doesn't solve the problem.
Only the reboot works, logging out/in doesn't seem to have any effect.

I have integrated and PCI network card, but the integrated one is disabled and doesn't show in Ubuntu, so I only have one network interface- eth1.

Any ideas?

It happens to me on Karmic if I have wire and wireless connection both turn on at the same time.
