Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 85676
With the current Kernel, nfs and/or ping stopped working
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
I updated to the latest kernel (the problem is the same with the previous kernel
release, but not the one before). That is, the problem occurs with Kernel
2.4.18-24.8.0 and 2.4.18-26.8.0. After the upgrade to these kernels on the
server, I am unable to either ping the server (no route to the host) or mount
nfs directories.rpcinfo -p <server> returns the same thing. However, if I switch
to kernel 2.4.18-19.8.0, nfs works again. The remote machine trying to connect
to the server does not have a problem even if it is running the latest kernel.
However, if the remote machine is turned into a server, the same problem arises.
Note that the machines are on the same local area network running through a
linksys router (if that is important).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade server to latest kernel.
2. Make nfs available.
3. ping server (no route to host)
what network card is this ?
The network card on the laptop is wpc11 (wireless linksys card), the network
card on the server is WUSB11 (linksys USB wireless card). As I said, if I revert
the server to kernel 2.4.18-19.8.0, then I am fine with ping and nfs etc. The
latest 2 kernels wont let me do that.
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
