#1 IOError (TCP/IP) hangs system



I have installed the latest kernel (http://nubus-
-031215.gz) on my Powermac 7100/80av running YDL 3.0.

However when I run "yum update" I ultimately get an error as

getting /var/cache/yum/base/headers/xdelta-0-1.1.3-7.ppc.hdr
IOError: [Errno 104] Connection reset by peer
URL: http://ftp.yellowdoglinux.com/pub/yellowdog/yum/3.0/

It does not always give an error on the xdelta header (this is just
the output of my last attempt) but the moment yum stops with an
IOError: [Errno 104], the system gets unstable.

Normal procedure would be to start yum again to continue, but
each time I do that the system dies on me. Either by becoming
completely "frozen" or by displaying some sort of panic but I have
not been unable to capture the exact text in that circumstance.

Until now I reboot each time I get the "Connection reset" to

Let me know if I can do anything to help in solving this problem.

    I was able to capture some of the text when the system "panics":

    'esp0: !BSERV after data, probably to msgout'

    is the message that is kept being output to the console, the system does
    nothing else but repeating this message.

    esp0 is the SCSI driver. What do you have in your SCSI
    chain? Is your SCSI chain properly terminated? Are you
    stilling having the problem?

    Hello Rayknight,

    I have tried from time to time (up to and including kernel 2.4.26
    ) but I finally gave up as the time never was stable and I never had an
    uptime of more than 1 day. I did upgrade my system to max. 136 MB
    internal memory and a 2GB SCSI hard disk but that was to no avail.

    I never had anything attached to my external SCSI chain, I only had the
    internal SCSI drive. Both these chains would be automatically
    terminated in that scenario, if I recall correctly.

    Now the system is happily back to running Mac OS 9 :)
