RedHat 3.0.3 portmap spawning like guppies.

RedHat 3.0.3 portmap spawning like guppies.

Yow!

        I have RedHat 1.0.3-i386.  Every so often, like every 5 minutes
to every 5 hours, portmap starts cranking out zombies, usually about a
half dozen of them or so.  It's just like in quake, only I don't have
quake installed.  I have 91 of them right now, with 3 days of uptime.

        I guess I could have cron kill portmap and restart her ever day,
but that sounds really dossy.

        Any ideas what the problem might be, or how to fix it?

1. rpc.portmap (p10, p11, and p12) AND portmap (p4)

        I've read the faq's, and hacked a lot but STILL ---

        rpc.portmap core dumps at the first sign of a request (even rpcinfo)

        This has been going on since I had a pl4 kernel, & is still happening under pl12
with net2, so I think it must be down to my setup!

        I have a DLINK ethernet - sometimes connected to a DOS box running PCNFS, or PCTCP
depending. I also use a SLIP link to demon. Everything seems to work apart from the rpc's

        Anybody who's made the rpc mechanism work - what have I missed ???
