Problems with Netscape 4.7 and 2.2.15

Problems with Netscape 4.7 and 2.2.15

Post by Torsten Zirzlaf » Tue, 09 May 2000 04:00:00



I just upgraded my kernel from 2.2.10 to 2.2.15 and now only root
could get netscape running. Other users just got hang  or better the
netscape processes go to sleep. With strace I was able to see that the
following happens:

--- SIGALRM (Der Wecker klingelt) ---
<... gettimeofday resumed> 0x11fffe278, 0) = -1 EILSEQ (Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character)
--- SIGALRM (Der Wecker klingelt) ---
gettimeofday( <unfinished ...>
--- SIGALRM (Der Wecker klingelt) ---
<... gettimeofday resumed> 0x11fffc018, 0) = -1 EILSEQ (Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character)
--- SIGALRM (Der Wecker klingelt) ---
sigreturn( <unfinished ...>

and nothing else happens. I had run this state for two hours!. Under
root or 2.2.10 netscape is up after at least 1 min.

I use a RH5.2 on a Noname

1. Feedback on 2.2.15 (wasRe: Kernel Stable: 2.2.15pre4 )

I've been trying the 2.2.15 prereleases, and so far they seem great.
2.2.15 pre 4 (subjectively speaking) made my system much zippier
than 2.2.13/4 and 2.2.15 pre 5 which I built last night, feels
faster still (and apparently has some rather neat debug code to
trap bad application memory use/kernel bugs).

So overall I'm very pleased. Many thanks to Alan and the guys who've
been working on the VM stuff. It feels great for me.

BTW I'm running this on Mandrake 6.1, Cyrix 6x86 MX 300, 64MB RAM.

Like I say, 2.2.15 feels like it's shaping up to be the best 2.2 kernel
yet by a significant margin (to me at least!)
