Description James Manning 2001-03-14 21:08:09 EST
upgrading from 2.4.2-0.1.16 to 2.4.2-0.1.28 breaks the setting of the
default route from eth0, which is dhcp from a cable modem.  Going back
to 0.1.16 and it works again.  All other route table entries are fine,
just the default route isn't getting set.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-14 21:18:17 EST
Weird. Are you sure you didn't install initscripts-5.75 in the interim? :)
Comment 2 James Manning 2001-03-14 21:28:55 EST
which is why i said booting back to 0.1.16 gets it working again :)

initscripts-5.00-1 is what's installed... did 0.1.28 need a dep
that it was missing?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-14 22:25:27 EST
No, it's just that that version (5.75-1) of initscripts has the
exact same effect. :)
Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 2001-03-15 12:38:59 EST
What ethernet card?
Comment 5 James Manning 2001-03-15 12:43:10 EST
Jeremy Katz suggested upgrading pump, but since it's largely still a
RH6.2 system, I can't, and it doesn't build from src.rpm... but anyway.

jmm@bp6:/home/jmm> rpm -q pump

the dhcp ethernet card is the tulip driver, FA310TX card

00:09.0 Ethernet controller: Lite-On Communications Inc LNE100TX (rev 20)
        Subsystem: Netgear FA310TX
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 11

Comment 6 Michael K. Johnson 2001-03-15 13:11:17 EST
Arjan, any recent changes to tulip?
Comment 7 Arjan van de Ven 2001-03-15 13:29:24 EST
No. 0.1.28 has 2 possible bad guys:
1) the updated zerocopy patch
2) slab poison
Comment 8 James Manning 2001-11-26 02:09:01 EST
