Description of problem:

On my main desktop machine (a NEC PowerMate Pentium IV) the command "lsdev"
doesn't do very much, it only returns :

"Split loop at /usr/bin/lsdev line 38, <DMA> line 1."

On my old test-computer running RH 7.2 this command returns a list like :

Device            DMA   IRQ  I/O Ports
Adaptec                      f800-f8ff
aic7xxx                  11  f800-f8fe
cascade             4     2
eepro100                     ece0-ecff
eth0                      9

I'll be happy to provide more details if needed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. lsdev on old rh 7.2 machine
2. lsdev on new phoebe 8.0.92 machine

Actual Results: 
- on old machine a nice list is return.
- on new machine the line "Split loop at /usr/bin/lsdev line 38, <DMA> line 1."
is returned.

Expected Results:  
- Also a nice list on new machine

Additional info:

Red Hat Linux release 8.0.92 (Phoebe)

This also occurs on RH8.0, procinfo-18-5. Same error.

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2003-01-18 14:05:31 UTC
I can't reproduce this on 6 systems locally, so it is probably a hardware
specific bug I presume.  This package is on our low priority package list,
which means it's unlikely to get further investigation due to inability
to reproduce.

Try reporting it to the official procinfo reporter upstream, and if he/she
fixes the issue, or if someone else has a patch, update this report
with such info/patch and reopen, and I'll add it to a future build.
Without being able to reproduce though, there's not much that I can do.

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2004-01-13 17:46:36 UTC
This problem has been reported by someone else as well, and a bit
further digging seems to show that it was actually a bug in the
perl interpreter.  If you upgrade perl to the latest release available
via updates the problem should theoretically go away.
