[yellowfin] hamachi - 2.4 kernel problems
Mon, 21 May 2001 14:28:53 -0500
I have an existing network using hamachi cards in redhat 6.2 systems.
I upgraded one of the systems to redhat 7.1 and have had problems with the
It seems to work properly for light-duty traffic - interactive web surfing
pinging etc. over a long
period of time, however when transfering larger files via FTP, I get
"something wicked happened"
messages and then the transfer stops. If I kill the FTP session, then
ifconfig down and up
the interface, it is still hung, pings do not work. Things work again
I re-compiled the kernel with the driver set for debug level 7, and then
tail -f /var/log/messages
while doing transfers, it seems that the something wicked messages are at
the same time as
the periodic (10 second) link autonegotiation messages.
I have tried several variants of kernel / driver - including 2.4.4-11ac,
but they all seem to hang.
I will keep poking at this, but do not have much experience as a driver
whacker, but I am happy
to try any test versions of the driver on my network, which includes
non-hamachi DEGPA gigabit
cards running under Tru64 unix.
