Hi all.

It's probably already known, but I've lost all my mail from last 2 weeks,
so I will write about this - please don't flame me too much :-)

On 2.0.30 transparent proxy doesn't work. Try redirecting some ports to
some other and you will get connection refused while tryng to connect to
redirected ports. This is true for all kernel configuration I have tried -
with and without SYN and RST stuff and with and without many other options
concerning networking. I have tried this on 2 different computers with
totally different configurations.

And the second problem:

While upgrading my debian instalation via nfs on the local network, I got
"Couldn't get a free page" several times (and upgrading hanged). I have
rebooted and tried that some more times - always with the same effect. So
I rebooted with 2.0.28 and all problems vanished.

If these are known problems (with known solutions), please tell me what I
should read.
