Description nuitari 2005-11-08 21:21:59 UTC
The last few days I have been having problems with this bug detailed in this
message board thread:

A patch to the linux kernel is available there:

I am testing if it really works, but it takes a few hours before it fails again.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Run a moderately busy bind server with a 2.6.14 kernel, stock or gentoo-sources.
Actual Results:  
Server stops receiving request on port 53/udp of the used affected ip.

Expected Results:  
Answer to dns queries.

exerpt from syslog:

Nov  8 04:28:32 hammer named[11721]: unable to convert errno to isc_result: 14:
Bad address

The bind server that had this issue is now running stable for a whole day. This
is more then twice the time that was happenning before.

The patch applied cleanly to gentoo-sources.

Forgot to close. This was fixed in 2.6.14-r1
