#39 Reboot when Configuring Ethernet


Sorry for posting this to mail list, should have just
put it here. UML boots my kernel and root file system
fine. When I try to configure the uml ethernet
interface, my host system reboots immediately. The
command line argument to the uml kernel on boot is:
The command line argument in UML that causes my host
system to reboot is:
ifconfig eth0 netmask
I have configured the host machine with both the
"Universal TUN/TAP device
driver support" and "Ethertap network tap". This is
reproducible. I'm not
on the list, so please cc me on responses. Thanks a bunch.

    When the host kernel crashes, that's a host kernel bug, not
    a UML bug.

    Collect whatever information you have about the crash and
    send it
    to the kernel list.
