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.
Weird. Are you sure you didn't install initscripts-5.75 in the interim? :)
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?
No, it's just that that version (5.75-1) of initscripts has the
exact same effect. :)
What ethernet card?
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
I/O ports at c400 [size=256]
Memory at d900b000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256]
Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled] [size=256K]
Arjan, any recent changes to tulip?
No. 0.1.28 has 2 possible bad guys:
1) the updated zerocopy patch
2) slab poison
this has been working for awhile now - closing
