Subject2.5.5-pre1 -- Two weird problems: my kernel log is incomplete and a usermode client problem
From
Date
Problem #1

I have applied a host of patches in order to get a bootable
kernel with usable drivers. Unfortunately, my kernel log
is corrupted. Also, dmesg output is faulty. During the boot
process, I appear to see all the correct information flash by.
As you can see from the included log snippet, there are a
few errors that probably indicate a cause. Specifically,
the line "Error seeking in /dev/kmem"looks bad.

Feb 17 11:00:09 turbulence syslog: syslogd startup succeeded
Feb 17 11:00:09 turbulence kernel: klogd 1.4.1, log source = /proc/kmsg
started.

First, these patches from GregKH:
usb.c.patch

usb-alloc_urb-2-2.5.5-pre1
usb-alloc_urb-3-2.5.5-pre1
usb-alloc_urb-4-2.5.5-pre1
usb-alloc_urb-5-2.5.5-pre1
usb-ohci-hcd-2.5.5-pre1.patch
usb-storage-debug.patch
usb-vicam-2.5.5-pre1.patch
usb1.patch
usb2.patch
usb3.patch
usb4.patch

aha152x.patch
patch-2.5.4-do_iso_mmap
alsa.patch
patch-2.5.5-pre1
inode.patch
vesafb.patch
videodev-patch-2.5.5-pre1

Problem #2

I run Evolution (Ximian's E-Mail, Calendar, etc. client).
I find that when I run Evolution under 2.5.5-pre1, whenever I
try to access the Contacts list, the client locks up. I have
run it under gdb, but see no crash. If I break into the
debugger, I see nothing suspicious. Thinking about this some
more, I am wondering if this could be due to the fact that
I use ipchains when I boot my 2.4 kernel. Since the 2.5 kernel
doesn't have ipchains support, ipchains doesn't start up.
Could this have something to do with it? I really don't
know how to proceed with debugging this problem.

Thanks,
Miles
