Hello,

I still have problems with the Linux client. 

The client is running on this machines :

486DX4-100, Linux 2.0.30
P75, Linux 2.0.30
AMD K5-100, Linux 2.0.30
6xP133, Linux 2.0.18

I start the clients with the following command:

nohup rc5-linux-i486-bovine -n 20 -a rc5proxy.distributed.net 
 / sester at stud.uni-hannover.de >> $1.log


Sometimes the clients die after finishing a keyblock

The Bovine Custom GNU rc5 client
Please visit http://www.cs.hmc.edu/~jlawson/rc5/ for details

rc5-56-client: [0x11142C30000000 -> 0x11142C3FFFFFFF]

dead (last line in logfile)

sometimes right after the start message:

rc5-56-client: Obtaining Key Mask from ``x162-50.chem.umn.edu:2056''.
rc5-56-client: The Bovine Proxy KeyServer (Build 1526)

rc5-56-client: Start Key 0x1119A450000000, trying 268435456 keys.

dead...
(last line in logfile)

I have no idea why. All clients use different servers. Some clients run 4
days without dying. Some die every 3 hours.

Nothing special in my log files. 

Especially the clients on Linux 2.0.18 have the problem quite often. 

Any hints for me?

ciao,
	Holger
