Tag Archives: buffer
First time I’ve gotten this problem when trying to ping another host:
connect: No buffer space available
The command ifconfig didn’t show anything unusual, but dmesg showed some interesting lines:
[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/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.
Why do I have such a hard time yanking to a specific buffer…
I’m writing this to have some notes 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…)
