Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 150763
Kernel compiled with gcc 4 gives network errors
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:17:38 EST
Compiling kernel-2.6.11-1.1177 on an FC4 machine (gcc 4.0.0,
kernel-2.6.11-1.1170) makes all network communication impossible,
except for the local network traffic!!!
The same kernel compiled on a FC3 machine (gcc 3.4.2,
kernel-2.6.11-1.1170) gives no problems.
Machine: small barebone with SIS chipset.
DMESG shows only trivial differences, the LSMOD-list is exactly the same.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Actual Results: Starting network gives error:
RTNETLINK answers: invalid argument
I noticed this too. I just switched from compiling with gcc 3.4 to
4.0 and started getting the same messages.
route add default gw xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
was all that was required after the above.
Thanks for the info. It must be an ifup-problem, but how this is
related to gcc 4.0 is unclear for me.
Till solved, I will stick to the kernel - gcc 3.4.2 combi !
