cyrus-imapd makes kernel-2.4.3-12 freeze
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:39 EDT
Description of Problem:
When downloading large mail-attachements the cumputer freezes, but led on netcard keeps flashing. When booting with old kernel it seems to work ok.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and run up2date, choose to install kernel-2-4-3-12.
2. Verify, use IMP webmail to send and receive and download attachements 4-5M large.
3. Use msoutlook on windows or uw-pine on linux to download a mailattachement on appr. 4-5M.
Mailmachine freezes, will not take local keyboard input or do output to log or screen or nothing else. Netcard keeps flashing.
download of mail and attachements
cyrus-imapd and kernel-2.4.3-12 works with IMP webmail but not with pine or outlook.
cyrus-imapd and kernel-2.4.2-2 works with all.
sendmail receives mail without problem in any case.
When the computer freezes it's maybe a kernel-problem, but it only happened for me with cyrus-imapd.
Closing as WONTFIX due to end of life of the Power Tools product line. Please
open a new bug report under the Red Hat Linux product if the component is still
included in the base Red Hat distribution.
