Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3632
Pump cannot get dhcp address with build of kernel
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
I built my kernel with some defined options. I'm very sure that Alan Cox has set the values of SOCK_PACK. But no matter wat, whenever I recompile my kernel, and try to "ifup eth0", the whole system just hangs. It's the same for both 2.2.5-22 and 2.2.10.
Miraculously, it seems to work when I use the default kernel that I get from the update mirrors for RedHat. So wat's the problem. I've looked at /usr/src/linux/net/ipv4 but there's really nothing there. How?
Thanx in advance whoever?
Does this happen if you install the kernel-2.2.5-22.src.rpm and edit
the /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/kernel-2.2-i386.config making the changes
that you want and then running
rpm -ba kernel-2.2.spec

I'm sorrie but that would not solve the fundamental problem rite? I've
not tried ur thing?? Err... I'm trying to compile my kernel. Not just
upgrading it from the module-loading form that redhat gives. Anyway,
I might try that if it really gets me irritated... I'm running on the
Okie anyway, I installed kernel-sources-2.2.5 and the same problem
also occured. I stated just about the same options again, and pump
just dun work. Neither does DHCPcd. To make matters worse, running
pump -i eth0 can actually result in the entire system freezing. I'm
using Linux coz of stability not to see it hanging... I hope u see my
Anyway. I better stop this whining.. Ummm... basically, I'm sure that
the principle of providing updated kernel code to the community is to
ensure that there are not bugs rite??? I've got this bug... I'm not
that good to solve it so I just need this little help to get this up
Thanx in advance... Anyway, ur reply is of help, just that it's rather
limited since I'm looking for a none modular approach to solve this.
So? wat now?
If you're still having problems building a working version of pump, please
reopen this bug.
