kernel bug relating to networking
Date: Mon May 16 2011 - 11:34:30 EST
I originally posted to linux-net@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx but all that list
received in the last day was 3 Russian (spam?) messages.
I'm hoping here will be less spam.
I'm having a wireless problem that I think is kernel issue.
kernel-220.127.116.11 is good but recent kernels are bad.
CompatWireless (recent wireless code) works on kernel-18.104.22.168 so I
don't think it is the wireless subsystem..
I have a Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5008 Wireless
Network Adapter (rev 01).
"iwlist wlan0 scan | grep SSID" under kernel-22.214.171.124 returns ~15 APs
and associates to my AP.
Recent kernels are bad and return ~0-3 APs and do not associate to my AP.
I need help to debug this.
I think the scans fail whenever dmesg shows this:
> ath: Failed to stop TX DMA in 100 msec after killing last frame
> ath: Failed to stop TX DMA!
It seems to be 100% if I boot a kernel and that message is there, it'll
be a bad kernel.
$ git clone
$ cd linux-2.6.37.y
# git tag
What tag is 126.96.36.199?
Is the next step to do:
$ git bisect start
$ git bisect good v188.8.131.52
$ git bisect bad v184.108.40.206
