Description of problem:
I have installed the tux package, but it does not run because it is unable to load the tux kernel module.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install standard FC4 and all updates
2. Install tux package
3. Try to run tux
Actual Results: The tux start seemed to work OK, but the web server was not running.
Expected Results: The tux kernel module should load and be configured.
This may be related to bug 169656.
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..
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.
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
