I believe this problem is likely hardware specific, and that the
machine you encountered this error on, probably has a more complex
set of /proc files than what lsdev was designed to handle.  Can
you provide me with a root shell on the machine in question for
debugging purposes?

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2004-01-13 16:25:57 UTC
Actually, the output of /proc/dma might be sufficient, as I can
then modify it to read ./dma and use your sample data to debug

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2004-01-13 16:39:47 UTC
Could possibly be related to this perhaps:


Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2004-01-13 17:47:32 UTC
This could actually have been a bug in perl.  Bug #78919 refers to
a similar error which may be the same problem.

Further searching yields bug #77437 which also claims this to be
a perl bug.

*** Bug 81310 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2004-01-13 18:16:11 UTC
alikins commented to me in IRC that this problem no longer occurs
on Fedora Core 1 for him, so this problem appears to be fixed now
whatever it was.  I'm going to assume based on my above research
that it was a perl bug that got fixed along the way, and close it
as such for now.

If anyone who experienced this problem, still can reproduce it
at all using Fedora Core 1 with the latest updates applied, please
reopen and try to help debug the issue.

Closing as CURRENTRELEASE (Fedora Core 1)
