Comment 1 Eric Bursley 2003-07-19 17:33:41 UTC
I saw a very simular event after installing the new 2.6.0-0 test kernel.  I also
noticed named complaining when the service started up:
process `named' is using obsolete setsockopt SO_BSDCOMPAT
process `named' is using obsolete setsockopt SO_BSDCOMPAT
process `named' is using obsolete setsockopt SO_BSDCOMPAT
process `named' is using obsolete setsockopt SO_BSDCOMPAT
process `named' is using obsolete setsockopt SO_BSDCOMPAT
process `named' is using obsolete setsockopt SO_BSDCOMPAT

Comment 2 Rik van Riel 2003-07-19 18:40:39 UTC
the named error messages are a problem with bind, "setsockopt SO_BSDCOMPAT" has
been obsolete since kernel version 2.2 or so and does nothing (I think Linux
sockets are already BSD compatible); the 2.6 kernel simply prints an error
message to catch those last few applications using this interface (which has
been obsolete for more than 6 years)

Andy_M's problem does look genuine, though...

Comment 3 Eric Bursley 2003-07-19 22:41:03 UTC
Should I open a new bug regarding the named problem then?  I am using the
standard bind packages from RH 9.

Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2003-07-19 22:45:22 UTC
yes please do a separate bug for named.

the usb issue can be that the usb modules got renamed between 2.4 and 2.6;
we're working on making modutils autoconvert but it currently doesn't.

the new name is uhci-hcd.ko while modutils probably tries to load uchi.ko
renaming or making a symlink should show if this assumption of "different module
name" is correct or not.

Comment 5 Alan Cramer 2003-07-20 16:36:40 UTC
mine tends to tell me that usb-ochi module could not be found.  would this be
linked to modules.conf or rc.sysinit?

Comment 6 Alan Cramer 2003-07-21 02:58:25 UTC
tried again with kernel-2.6.0-0.test1.1.26 and got the same error above
(couldn't find usb_ochi.ko ) and i also got told this time that mousedev was
already in the kernel.

Comment 7 Alan Cramer 2003-07-31 05:52:10 UTC
no usb mouse and same problem with usb-ochi in kernel-2.6.0-0.test2.1.28.  is
there something i am not doing that i should be?

Comment 8 Alan Cramer 2003-08-04 17:39:58 UTC
Upgraded to kernel-2.6.0-0.test2.1.29

Upon booting, it complains about usb-ochi as usual.

This time however instead of complaining about mousedev and keybdev already
being in the kernel, it now says that it couldn't be found.

once i got into X, i switched to a new console via Ctrl+Alt+F1, logged in as
root and invoked modprobe ochi-hcd and it worked for the first time, and now the
mouse is working.

Just need to fix it during boot somehow.  If someone can point me to the right
place, I should be able to fix it myself.

Comment 9 Eric Bursley 2003-08-05 00:55:50 UTC
I also can not view the RPM database, or install any RPM when booted into the 
2.6.0 kernel.  I get the following:
[root@badboy root]# rpm -qa | grep kernel
rpmdb: unable to join the environment
error: db4 error(11) from dbenv->open: Resource temporarily unavailable
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - Resource temporarily unavailable 
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
[root@badboy root]#

Rebooting into the 2.4.20-13.9 allows RPM to work normally

Comment 10 Arjan van de Ven 2003-08-05 08:23:19 UTC
the later is an RPM bug.... known.

Comment 11 Bill Nottingham 2004-01-28 08:57:31 UTC
The usb stuff should be more or less all taken care of with current
kernels + modutils. Please file other bugs separately, thanks!
