Description Brad Smith 2003-02-15 19:56:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021202

Description of problem:
I inadvertently configured irc connection tracking with more than 8 ports which
in turn caused some very strange system behavior. The first symptom was the lose
of the system mouse. When I rebooted the system, the next symptom was a failure
to boot. The system would hang as it was starting lpd, sendmail and other
services. I could always cntl-alt-del to reboot, but the system would not boot

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.define more than 8 irc ports in iptables
2.reinitialize iptables

Actual Results:  system hang during reboot.

Expected Results:  gracefull failure of the irc connection module should not
have affected any other component of the system

Additional info:

While trying to track down this bug, I ended up buying a new motherboard and CPU
and ddr ram..... Expensive bug. :)

Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or
Fedora Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.

Closing as "not a bug" for now.
