Description Ron Sokoloski 2005-04-15 19:45:42 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2

Description of problem:
Downlevel clients on this server seem to be able to cause random kernel panics - see the console capture in the above URL. I have an identical server in another location running FC3 that doesn't exhibit this behaviour, I believe due to the abcense of any Mac OS clients lower that OS8.5. This location has one or 2 Mac OS clients in the 8.1 range.

I am using a Netatalk 2.0 RPM made for ClarkConnect, but since that product is based on FC3 it should run fine - in fact , I have 2 other servers in production with this RPM. I think the kernel should be more resilient than this anyway - a driver issue like this shouldn't take out the whole kernel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install this RPM on an updated FC3 server:
2. Connect a Mac OS 8.x client to the resulting AFP share
3. Keep the share open on the desktop

Actual Results:  Kernel paniced, results logged to serial console

Expected Results:  Kernel should have kept running, even if it shut down AppleTalk

you'll probably get this fixed quicker by reporting it upstream to its

Appletalk gets zero testing at Red Hat, and is enabled in Fedora kernels as a
convenience to users only. We basically rely on upstream being in good enough
shape to continue to do this.

I've forwarded this bug to the e-mail address given to me above.
