Description Chris Siebenmann 1999-04-03 09:15:21 UTC
Some/all uses of RawHide tcpdump on a current 2.2.* kernel
on a Rawhide machine (2.2.5-ac3, Rawhide 1.3.2) produce this
message in the kernel syslog. I report it in case it's of
more than cosmetic irritation (tcpdump seems to work fine).

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-04-09 18:56:59 UTC
The kernel messages do not occur using kernel-2.2.5-4 and
tcpdump-3.4-10 on a sparc64 machine. I presume that the
annoying messages were cosmetic. Thanks for the report.
