Unfortunately i am not close to my machines and wont be for a while.
Can you try not to pass mirred in the command line and see if that


If I just do -

$TC filter add dev eth0 parent ffff: protocol ip prio 10 u32 \
match u32 0 0 flowid 1:1 \
action ipt -j MARK --set-mark 1

It still gives memory error with 1.3.1 , with 1.2.11 it parses OK but I get bogus stats - hit count is OK

[root@amd /home/andy/Qos]# tc -s filter ls dev eth0 parent ffff:

filter protocol ip pref 10 u32
filter protocol ip pref 10 u32 fh 800: ht divisor 1
filter protocol ip pref 10 u32 fh 800::800 order 2048 key ht 800 bkt 0 flowid 1:1 (rule hit 12 success 12)
match 00000000/00000000 at 0 (success 12 )
action order 1: tablename: mangle hook: NF_IP_PRE_ROUTING
target MARK set 0x1
index 1 ref 1 bind 1 installed 251 sec expires 1 sec
Action statistics:
Sent 7630953 bytes 0 pkt
rate 3146Kbit 1095565348pps

If I try with the lines below added

action egress redirect dev dummy0 or
action redirect dev dummy0

I just get errors on whatever is after action - or memory errors with 1.3.1.

Using tc iproute2-ss050112 + patch for these tests.

I don't know if it's relevant but I am using gcc-2.95.3, which meant I had to change the dummy patch a bit as it doesn't (for me) like variable declarations in the middle of functions.

drivers/net/dummy.c: In function `dummy_xmit':
drivers/net/dummy.c:218: parse error before `from'
drivers/net/dummy.c:219: `from' undeclared (first use in this function)

So I changed to

static int dummy_xmit(struct sk_buff *skb, struct net_device *dev)
        struct dummy_private *dp = ((struct net_device *)dev)->priv;
        struct net_device_stats *stats = &dp->stats;
        int ret = 0;
        __u32 from;

        from = G_TC_FROM(skb->tc_verd);

Is there a switch for this? - or am I the only one who actually does kernel stuff with 2.95.3 (using LFS 5.1, which uses 3.3 by default but keeps 2.95.3 in /opt specially for kernels)

I am using it for iptables and tc aswell (though I tried 3.3 - but not for kernel yet)

I have manually loaded modules
