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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install standard FC4 and all updates

3. Try to run tux

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-12-16 15:59:05 EST
it broke in 2.6.14 based kernels.  The next update at
http://people.redhat.com/davej/kernels/Fedora/FC4 has it enabled again, I'd love
to know how it works out for you..
Comment 2 Karyl Stein 2005-12-16 17:15:31 EST
I installed kernel 2.6.14-1.1767_FC4 i586 as found in that directory.  The tux
module loads on boot and I see the processes running.  The /proc/sys/net/docroot
and other entries set in the init.d script seem fine.  I am not changing
anything from the default tux package install other than adding a MIME type to
/etc/tux.mime.types to support WPAD (proxy auto detection) scripts.  I can
connect to port 80 on the system, but it does not respond to any requests.  I
put an index.html file in the docroot, but trying to access that through a
browser just returned a blank document after a delay.  Nothing is being logged
to /var/log/tux.  I don't see any tux-related messages logged elsewhere.
Comment 3 John Bass 2005-12-21 19:47:38 EST
I picked up Dave's kernel, and it hung the system on the first access to the
ftp port. Static port 80 traffic seemed to be ok prior to hang. Hang stopped
network packet traffic, with no keyboard response.

2.6.14-1.1771_FC4 #1 Mon Dec 19 23:03:41 EST 2005 i686

/etc/sysconfig/tux contains:

modprobe tux
echo "html" > /proc/sys/net/tux/http_subdocroot
echo "ftp" > /proc/sys/net/tux/ftp_subdocroot
echo "" > /proc/net/tux/0/listen/1

Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
