Description Ron Sokoloski 2005-04-15 19:45:42 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2

Description of problem:
Downlevel clients on this server seem to be able to cause random kernel panics - see the console capture in the above URL. I have an identical server in another location running FC3 that doesn't exhibit this behaviour, I believe due to the abcense of any Mac OS clients lower that OS8.5. This location has one or 2 Mac OS clients in the 8.1 range.

I am using a Netatalk 2.0 RPM made for ClarkConnect, but since that product is based on FC3 it should run fine - in fact , I have 2 other servers in production with this RPM. I think the kernel should be more resilient than this anyway - a driver issue like this shouldn't take out the whole kernel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install this RPM on an updated FC3 server: http://public.planetmirror.com/pub/clarkconnect/clarkconnect-3.0/other/netatalk-2.0.2-1.i386.rpm
2. Connect a Mac OS 8.x client to the resulting AFP share
3. Keep the share open on the desktop

Actual Results:  Kernel paniced, results logged to serial console

Expected Results:  Kernel should have kept running, even if it shut down AppleTalk

you'll probably get this fixed quicker by reporting it upstream to its
maintainer acme@conectiva.com.br

Appletalk gets zero testing at Red Hat, and is enabled in Fedora kernels as a
convenience to users only. We basically rely on upstream being in good enough
shape to continue to do this.
