I've known someone was gonna say something like that :)
I've tried to get more info but only got complete lockups and a console bloated with oops reports
with a nice terminal "Aiee, killing interrup handler". No magic syskey, no nothing (beside a spontaneous reset at one point)
Note: the end result was different because some daemons were not started and fs were RO ;)
If no masqueraded tcp connections (say some web pages access) has gone thru the box yet, the first udp packets
coming in (those that should be redirected, namely some streamed video) take the system down.
If there was some, either on the first or the second udp stream... explosion.
Estimated Survival Time: 1 minute.
I can't set up a serial console right now and i need a somehow working system...
I'm backpedalling at full speed to something more usable.
PS: if there's some patch available, that might raise the EST a bit i'm still interested. ;)
