connect: No buffer space available

First time I’ve gotten this problem when trying to ping another host:

$ ping pong
connect: No buffer space available

The command ifconfig didn’t show anything unusual, but dmesg showed some interesting lines:

[332083.737268] ipv4: Neighbour table overflow.
[332205.552806] net_ratelimit: 15 callbacks suppressed

I noticed that minidlna sucked up 100% from one core, but I don’t know if this is related. I restarted minidlna and the network, and all was back to normal again:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/minidlna restart
$ sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

When I was back online again, I was curious and googled the problem. I found some hints to check the routing table and arp table, which I’ll do in the future should the problem ever arise again.

Vim: Yank to a specific buffer

Why do I have such a hard time yanking to a specific buffer…

I’m writing this to have some notesĀ  to go back to.

To yank (copy) to a specific buffer, do the following:

  • Press ESC to get to command mode
  • Press v to get a visual view of the selected text, move around as per usual to mark more lines, word, paragraphs, etc
  • Press “a to choose buffer a to hold the yanked text (That’s double quote, followed by an a. Replace a with b to yank to buffer b, etc…)
