Hello fellow superusers,

I run into a problem when setting up my dual ethernet card 82576-GE-2T-X1. I successfully make the latest driver igb and installed the module after removing the previous igb module. So, everything is fine until network raise of my /etc/network/interfaces - the raise failed.

Here is my interfaces file:

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto enp3s0
allow-hotplug enp3s0
iface enp3s0 inet dhcp 

auto enp1s0f0
iface enp1s0f0 inet static
address 10.0.0.12/24
gateway 10.0.0.12

auto enp1s0f1
iface enp1s0f1 inet static
address 192.168.0.12/24
gateway 192.168.0.10

Here is the "systemctl status networking.service" message:

● networking.service - Raise network interfaces
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/networking.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

here is the "journalctl -xe" message:

$ sudo ifup enp1s0f1

RTNETLINK answers: File exists

ifup: failed to bring up enp1s0f1

So, the two new interfaces can't raise (out of a total of 3, including the motherboard nic), can't ping of course.

Does anyone has some clues? (I try to contact also the card vendor ipolex)

Thank you for your insights :-)

ok, I figured it out:

I replaced /etc/network/interfaces from initial post with:

'# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system

'# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

'# The loopback network interface

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback

auto enp3s0

allow-hotplug enp3s0

iface enp3s0 inet dhcp

allow-hotplug enp1s0f0

iface enp1s0f0 inet static

address 10.0.0.12

netmask 255.255.255.0

gateway 10.0.0.12

allow-hotplug enp1s0f1

iface enp1s0f1 inet static

address 192.168.0.12

netmask 255.255.255.0

gateway 192.168.0.10

and now it works like a charm. Cant' wait to test the through output of this new card :-)

have a nice day,
