Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 452945
NetworkManager goes into a loop during suspend/Resume cycles
Last modified: 2008-07-02 19:20:48 EDT
Description of problem:
I've managed to reproduce this twice now, both times at an office where I don't
normally spend time.
Basically, when changing network ports during suspend/resume cycles, or simply
removing the cable and resuming, NetworkManager goes into a spin/restart loop
and fills the logfile at a rapid rate ( 1.8 Gb large /var/log/messages the last
time, the machine was unusable and I had to hard reset it to recover)
Since it's been intermittant, I can't reproduce the error reliably, and I didn't
think to keep the huge logfiles either (btw, the log viewer program barfs and
locks during startup with those logs, they are a fair bit larger than system RAM.. )
Anyhow, this is a mental tracker for myself as well as others: close lid,
unplug cable and plug it into another machine, do work, change outlet and plug
back into suspended laptop, then resume.
Version: NetworkManager 0.7.0-0.9.4.scn3675 fc9 x86_64
Likely the same root cause as 448889 even though that bug is about killswitches.
