Expected Results:  a multipath route should have been created, and the system stay up...

Additional info:

Comment 1 Radek Vokál 2005-08-05 11:23:50 UTC
Hmm, didn't manage to reproduce same crash. From the output I asume it's more
kernel bug. May I have some comments from kernel people please?

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-08-05 22:24:35 UTC
which kernel version is this ?


Comment 3 Matt Almond 2005-08-06 20:46:36 UTC
2.6.11-1.1369_FC4
Also, it is in the kernel, when I disabled the multipath caching it no longer
crashed... experimental feature probably not needed in fedora core base kernel...

Comment 4 Matt Almond 2005-08-06 20:49:24 UTC
Sorry exact feature to disable is: IP_ROUTE_MULTIPATH_CACHED

Comment 5 Dave Jones 2005-08-26 22:14:38 UTC
This is fixed in the errata kernel.
