This is outrageous!!!!
I figured perhaps there is a coding bug, so I went to update some pkgs at:
I updated samba, samba client, and samba common.
I also got a new kernel source and header.
I installed a new kernel with the new samba rpms and I'm still getting this: Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual memory address...
I found the above info and I checked samba.org to see what the latest version is.. I don't trust redhat's update page now!!
The version they had for an UPGRADE was 2.0.10!!!
2.2 is out on samba.org in an rpm rolled for RH 7.1!! RH really sucks, they are extremely old in their versions! I had to go to the rawhide site
for the 2.2 version of samba! The kernel I got was also old. It has on the update site 2.4.9, but at the rawhide site, it has 2.4.17!!
Can anyone explain why Rehat is keeping users pushed back? If I get something from the update site, I expect it to be the latest stable version!!
I'm upgrading samba once again, this time to 2.2.8
I'm still having the collisions and crashes, but maybe this will fix it.
I'm also going to try taking out that "TCP_NODELAY" if that doesn't work.
I might also dl that 2.4.17 kernel.
All these crashes are doing heavy damage to my file system.. Once I figure out how to fix this, I may just do a clean install and patch it.
