Description Jaroslaw Sosnicki 1999-06-13 21:57:13 UTC
I am getting the following message reported to the console:
svc: short len 4, dropping request

Don't know from what application this message is comming
from?

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-14 15:12:59 UTC
The message comes from the kernel in net/sunrpc/svc.c with
RPC_PARANOIA turned on. Perhaps you have runt packets ...

I'm changing the component to kernel.
