comment Strange temporary network outage in Linux
@Gilles, you were right. I just found today somebody's cell phone was using my IP through a DHCP assignment (my IP is fixed but the DHCP pool was overlapping it). Like I said, I initially discarded this possibility because I was to be able to ping another host while the first one was unreachable, but today I quickly changed my IP while everything stopped and there was my IP being pinged from another NIC. Would you please move your comment into an answer so I can accept it? You were the first to really answer it, anyway. Thanks!

Gilles, I'm pretty sure my IP is unique on the network, but supposing that could happen I still think it wouldn't explain one host getting pinged normally while the other not (they are being pinged simultaneously). Don't you agree?

comment Does setting the system time back impair logrotate operation?
Thanks for your answer Patrick. On another embedded system using the same board I also sync time with NTP so I don't have to worry about logrotate getting screwed up. The problem with this one specifically is that it doesn't even have an ethernet connection available. I know deleting the status file just makes logrotate recreate one next time referring to 1970, but I wonder if it gets restarted again it will not rotate properly because the clock got backwards even during "1970".
