Description jimbrown 1999-07-21 21:24:33 UTC
I beleive there is a problem with
netkit-base-0.10-31.is86.rpm I have a
script that pings hosts and ever since I applied the errata
ping now
fails with this error message :

jab-linux.isd.ustra.abb.com:/jbrown/linux/errata$ ping
130.110.238.4
PING 130.110.238.4 (130.110.238.4) from 130.110.238.80 : 56
data bytes
>From jab-linux.isd.ustra.abb.com (130.110.238.80):
Destination Host
Unreachable
>From jab-linux.isd.ustra.abb.com (130.110.238.80):
Destination Host
Unreachable
>From jab-linux.isd.ustra.abb.com (130.110.238.80):
Destination Host
Unreachable

There is no host the at that address and I should not be
getting this
error. I have an original 6.0 install which has a different
date and
size from the original. The dates on the original install
is:

14804 Apr 7 ping

and the new one is:

17652 Jul 6 ping

 This effectivly breaks ping. Which is vital to my script.
Meanwhile I
have moved the older version onto this computer and I have
changed my
script to refernece the old version of ping. If someone
could please
look into why this is happening. Oh the platform is Intel.

                                        Thanks

I could not get this update to fail on a test lab machine running
standard 6.0 with updates.
