Can you provide me with a root shell on the machine in question for debugging purposes?
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2004-01-13 16:25:57 UTC
Actually, the output of /proc/dma might be sufficient, as I can then modify it to read ./dma and use your sample data to debug locally.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2004-01-13 16:39:47 UTC
Could possibly be related to this perhaps: https://listman.redhat.com/archives/psyche-list/2003-March/msg00554.html
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2004-01-13 17:47:32 UTC
This could actually have been a bug in perl. Bug #78919 refers to a similar error which may be the same problem. Further searching yields bug #77437 which also claims this to be a perl bug.

Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2004-01-13 18:16:11 UTC
alikins commented to me in IRC that this problem no longer occurs on Fedora Core 1 for him, so this problem appears to be fixed now whatever it was. I'm going to assume based on my above research that it was a perl bug that got fixed along the way, and close it as such for now. If anyone who experienced this problem, still can reproduce it at all using Fedora Core 1 with the latest updates applied, please reopen and try to help debug the issue. Closing as CURRENTRELEASE (Fedora Core 1)
