SubjectHPFS support is almost dead with 2.1.119
If I try to make a directory listing I get a page fault.
If I copy files I get the same results once the file is
copied.

I have also notice a severe problem with the ppp which
I describe after the listing of the dump.

My system is the following

IBM (Cyrix II) 686 MMX 230Mhz processor with 40M of Ram

Disk1
1- Primary partition Fat32 with winblows 98 --- 1GB
2- Primary partition HPFS with OS/2 4.0 --- 1GB
3- Boot manager

Disk2
1- Primary partition ext2 Linux --- 1.1GB
2- Primary partition swap --- 64kB

Disk3
1- Primary partition Fat16 --- Data, 512MB
2- Logical partition ext2 --- Data, 875MB

The first hard disk is set as LBA and the other two as normal
I use RedHat 5.1 with all the lastest fixes as of about 3 weeks ago.
I haven't downloaded newer ones since.

page fault messages :
first is a copy and second a dir

---------------------------------------------

As for the ppp it works and it doesn't work. Yesterday I tried to
connect
for nearly 20 minutes and it would disconnect the line all the time. I
rebooted
on the 2.0.34 kernel and tried a few times, it connected without a flaw
each time.

Last night I tried again on 2.1.119 and it connected and much like today
with
the same pattern. It is very repetitive as it will do roughly the same
thing
over and over.

I get two different behaviors, Sometime I get the first part that you
see in
the listing below sometime I don't. I always get the other one which is
that
it doesn't even attempt to dial but report a failure to connect.
It also seem to take it forever before it would do anything.

I have the version 2.3.5-1 PPP software.

How do I get rid of that stupid message about tty_io.c?
I get this : execv /usr/sbin/in.identd: No such file or directory
Where the heck is the call for this inexistant file?
That last message is also present under Kernel 2.0.34, perhaps a screw
up in
the install of RedHat.
