Slackware problems with new kernel.

Slackware problems with new kernel.

Post by Quy Tonth » Tue, 11 Jan 1994 01:04:57



I am trying to upgrade my linux box (Slackware 1.1.1) to pl14i.
Everything seems OK except when it runs with new kernel,
in.ntalkd generate many many many messages in syslog.

The message is

   in.ntalkd[86]: recvfrom: Transport endpoint is not connected

The problems are stopped by removing ntalkd from /etc/inetd.conf,
but it does not seem to be a good solution to me.

- Does this happen to anybody ?

- If so, how do you fix it ?

- If not, what did I do wrong ?

All advices would be appreciated.

Counting myself, this is the fourth such occurance of this problem
I have read about on the net.  DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA WHY THIS
IS HAPPENING?  So far, three of the four reporting the problem have
been using Slackware, with a newer kernel (pl14*).  I would be more
than happy to investigate the problem myself, but don't know where
to start.  ANY suggestions at all will be greatly appreciated.

BTW, One fellow (forgot name, apologies) informed me that killing and
restarting inetd cured the problem on his machine.  (Not an ideal
solution, but at least its something to use until a better one comes
along! :)

Thanks for any help,

Robert

Yes it happened to my machine yesterday. ( Slackware1.1.1+386DX40+Cyrix387
+16MB+ide ) For an other strange reason the slackware always checked
the root device at boot time while using this kernel.

I haven't tried again. I'm using the old kernel now.
