[parisc-linux] bad local loopback (and 712 X query)

Hi all;

I send this with a dual purpose:


I got my 712/80i running fine off the 0.9.2 ISO (it worked GREAT after I
tried the 32bit kernel and not the 64bit one :> ) Anyway, It runs pretty
well. So: has anyone gotten X working on a 712? and would like to share?

like I said, it works pretty well...
...except for the fact that while I'm using it (or even when it's just at
a tty login prompt) these errors come up:

ip_local_deliver: bad loopback skb: PRE_ROUTING LOCAL_IN
skb: pf=2 (unowned) dev=lo len=328
PROTO=17 L=328 S=0x10 I=0 F=0x0000 T=16

67 and 68 are bootp server and client ports, respectively. How can I get
rid of these? they prevent the box from being really useful because they
pop up every minute or so at the current cursor location, which is a major
detriment to doing, well, anything.

As far as I can tell, these packets are coming from the machine itself,
and it's attempting to send a broadcast packet over loopback. Perhaps by
turning off bootp services in /etc/inetd.conf?

thanks for your time,



Phil Anderson
