Description Phil Venton 2001-07-24 06:26:09 EDT
Customer reports that about one in three connection attempts with rp3 cause the connection to hang before completion under the 2.4.3-12 errata kernel.  The dial process will not die, and requires a reboot.

Works fine under the standard 2.4.2 shipping kernel.

What other info do you need?

Additional Info:

This has been reproducd by the customer under various configurations of Dell Inspiron 7500 GLT portables (several machines, so it shouldn't be a hardware fault), as well as a Toshiba Tecra laptop.

It may or may not be related to the fact that these are all portables, I'm trying to confirm here.

Customer has recently discovered that changing the hostname from just the machine name to a FQDN restores proper behaviour.  Do we require a FQDN, or should it be able to work with just, for example, "machine01"?

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
