I've installed the latest RPM available on a Mandrake 8.1 (Kernel
2.4.8), and am experiencing strange behavior:
* Any UDP using program (ie: named, host, etc ...) brings the host
system to a crawl. Additionnally, identd does that too (it does'nt use
UDP, does it?). The load on the host goes through the roof, while,
surprisingly, the load displayed on the virtual machine is quasi-nil.
* As a result booting is very slow, and the virtual system is extremely
unresponsive; however, while loaded, the host system is quite
* uml_net segfaults
Any idea what might cause this?
Also, I have a question on the network setup: I don't understand the
concept of uml_net and uml_switch, is there a place where it's detailed?
I could only find "howto"s .
Likewise, I don't have a clear mental picture of TUN/TAP , ethertap ...
When trying to set those up, I had to use a bogus IP address for the
tap, which doesn't get used. So that's 3 IP, the host, the tap, and the
VM. It's not described in the doc.
Thanks for your help in advance.
