Description cjr 1999-08-12 01:21:44 UTC
Howdy. I have been able to get pump to a state in which it is never able to perform its magic. pump will timeout after sometime with "Operation failed." but continue to run. Subsequent pump -s or pump -r results in an "Operation failed." pump continues to operate (in a failed mode). Of course, kill -KILL works great. The only solution that I have found to this is rebooting the computer (unacceptable). Killing pump, tearing down the entire network, etc. and restarting pump has no effect. I have an strace and ltrace of pump if it would be useful to anyone. Cheers.

Does it still happen with the errata release (0.7.0)?

Hi. email@example.com in disguise. Yes, this still happens under the errata release of 0.7.0. The specific instances of my problem are as follows. I have two computers that are connected to my Time Warner Motorolo cable modem. It seems that this arrangement allows only one computer to use the cable modem at a time. I suspect that the cable modem associates the MAC address with the computer that is allowed to talk. To continues, whenever I want to use the Windows box, I run winipcfg and renew the token. This reassociates the cable modem with the Windows box. At this point, pump because hosed. (Yes, masquerade. I know. I haven't had the time to get a second NIC yet though since my last one... well... I digress.) I go through all of the *conceivable* motions to get my system back into a state where pump will work. I... . ifdown eth0 (fails) . kill pump because pump -r hangs . network stop . kill pump in case pump -r was started by ifdown eth0 . rm /var/run/pump.sock . network start During network start, pump hangs and fails with Operation failed. These steps were my latest iteration in attempt to get the machine working again without having to reboot the machine. Oh, these steps are even conducted with the Windows box off the network. I am fairly certain that it is not a release/renew problem with the cable modem as it worked before the upgrade to RH 6.0. Plus, the Windows box is able to renew regardless if the Linux box has current control. Once I reboot, it comes up lickity split. Cheers.
