Re: [BUG] linux 2.4.1 to 2.4.1-ac3 hangs

In retrospect it looks like there are three problems shown here.

1. The are the packet error messages which have just started appearing in
ac3, but do not seem to hurt anything... I am forced to use pppoe and do have
the mtu(s) set correctly (1500 on eth1, 1492 on ppp0 (which runs on eth1), all
internal PC should have 1454 (one was incorrect and is now fixed)). I am
using the ipchains module and have not tried the iptables filter to clamp

2. There is a PCI routing error reported during boot. The kernel does seem
to resolve this ok - is this message anything to worry about?

3. System hangs. This box has been quite stable. The hangs started
appearing around 2.4.1 or so. I very much doubt they are heat releated. I
have had heat problems in the past an have moved the kit into a much better
case. The old symptoms (ide tape problems) have gone and not returned even
on the hotest summer day... Next time this happens I will try to telnet or
ssh into box to see if anything is active, I will also setup a UPS on the box
and see it that can shut it down. Its interesting that the software watchdog
does not get triggered.
