Description brownb 1999-06-29 12:34:37 EDT
When using Red Hat Linux 6.0 as an NFS client to a host
running Solaris 2.5.1, I've seen file corruption.  The
specific trigger is running ld to link executables -- the
output file is messed up with some regularity.  I do not
know which side of the NFS connection is to blame.  It could
be a bug in the Solaris server.  I have not yet seen the
problem with servers running Solaris 2.6.  When I look at
the bytes that are wrong it looks like some byte or word
swapping has occurred.

Here is some output of "cmp -l" showing some of the
differences between a good file and a corrupted one:

We have a large amount of experience with Red Hat 5.1 and the bug was
definitely not present in that release.  It only appeared after the
6.0 upgrade.

This looks to be a duplicate of bug# 3758, which is a known bug with
Solaris, so I do not think that linux is to blame on this one.  Reopen
this bug if the Solaris fix does not remedy the problem.
