Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3953
net-tools-152 causes kernel oops during ifconfig
Last modified: 2008-08-01 12:22:51 EDT
System has 2 cards. First is running tulip module and is
ok. The second is running fddi in the kernel. When booting
a kernel oops crashes the machine every time, during the
ifconfig for fddi0. This is after upgrading to
net-tools-1.52-2.i386.rpm. It does not occur with
net-tools-1.51-3 from the redhat 6 cd.
This is a kernel problem. FWIW net-tools-1.53 has FDDI support
turned on, and it sounds like the driver is not quite cooked yet.
