Description Satish Balay 2004-10-15 14:42:24 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
lftp breaks after rawhide update to kernel-2.6.8-1.624

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.8-1.624, lftp-3.0.6-2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rawhide/fc3t3
2. update to latest rawhide (including kernel-2.6.8-1.624)
3. reboot to kernel-2.6.8-1.624
4. try 'lftp mirrors.kernel.org'

Actual Results:  The cursor blinks wierdly - and lftp is no longer
useable (ctrl-c) gets out of this

Expected Results:  Get an 'lftp >' prompt

Additional info:

the problem disappears on booting back to kernel-2.6.8-1.610 

Also, I tried recreating initrd for kernel-610 (with all the latest
updtes)- and this worked fine

Forgot to mention - this lftp behavior happens when lftp is invoked
from console (vt1), xterm, gnome-terminal, ssh-from-fc1

Can you post a strace?

Also worth mentioning here, Evolution can't get Exchange/IMAP mail
(simply hangs on message retrieval). Kernel 2.6.8-1.610 doesn't have
that problem.
Comment 5 Christopher Stone 2004-10-20 15:01:54 EDT
lftp seems to be working again with kernel-2.6.9-1.639
Comment 6 Bojan Smojver 2004-10-20 21:26:58 EDT
Evolution problems also went away with kernel-2.6.9-1.639. So, I guess
we should close this one. I guess Dave will have to do that...
