Description of problem:
Installed Redhat 9.0 on an InteL PC. This gave me version 2.4.20-6.
After applying new Kernal and patches, the version is now 2,4,20-3.19.
I am now having Shutdown hanging problems at Shudown interface ETH0, when the
Ethernet cable is plugged in to the NIC CARD (D-LINK DFE-530TX+). However, if I
disconnect the cable prior to Shutdown, it now hangs at Shutdown interface
LOOPBACK-SEE TICKET NUMBER 238098.
Problem does not occur at all with 2.4.20-6. SHUTDOWN is being performed from

Apply all patches to bring me up to date? And, is the patch you are speaking
of, on this list?
Thanks, and I appreciate you picking up the problem so quickly
the fix is in the 2.4.20-18.9 kernel; it's the current latest update one as on
the ftp site or via up2date
Sorry, I am not understaning, should I apply all patch's out on Errata to get
myself current? Is the Patch in question part of all these?
the fix is part of the errata set yes;
kernel-2.4.20-18.9.i686.rpm is the file in question
Shutdown is now working fine. Thanks very much for your time.
