Register says DFS is wrong... 68 plus 12
On Thu, 17 Feb 2005 10:54:06 +0000, spike1 I did think it must have something to do with the kernel (well, for obvious reasons!), but I've...

Loads? But Linux is so very stable - at least that's what you cola bozos keep reminding everyone, over and over and over. So which is it?

So when it happens on Linux systems it's flakey hardware, but on Windows it's flakey software? Did I understand your hypocrisy correctly?

I don't have one from my Windows system to compare to that Linux set.

Not at all. Ray made the blanket statement "Error messages on Linux actually mean something.."

It turns out they don't - except to a very, very few.

It tells you what it says.

They weren't the best examples - here are some better ones from my Event Viewer:

"Timed out sending notification of target device change to window of "C:-Program Files-Musicmatch-Musicmatch Jukebox-mim.exe"

"Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 000CF1E39156. The following error occurred: The semaphore timeout period has expired. . Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server."

"Time Provider NtpClient: An error occurred during DNS lookup of the manually configured peer ',0x1'. NtpClient will try the DNS lookup again in 15 minutes. The error was: A socket operation was attempted to an unreachable host. (0x80072751)"

That's what cola's for, isn't it? There's sure not much advocacy going on here.

See above.

As I recall, if you have Visual Studio installed some program crashes will launch the debug environment and do the same thing.

Why should it?

Do you honestly consider $100 (for say Visual Studio .NET C++) to be "paying through the nose"?

Did you ever look around and see how small is the population of people who think like you - and cola? It's tiny. Wonder why.
