Hi guys,

I am spending many sleepless nights on this with not much to show for
progress.

I am trying to get two ubuntu zesty boxes to talk DECnet. As the basic
test, I am doing dneigh which works on both, and dnping from box 1 to
box 2 which does not work. They are connected over dedicated NICs via a
consumer ethernet switch.

The box I try dnping from comes back with "Write: No buffer space
available". It also logs a WARNING to the kernel log, as below:

I do not know what you are doing wrong, or if a code change is needed
for decnet-linux for more recent Linux kernels.

Have you tried connecting to a real VMS system, such as SimH/VAX on a
VMS hobbyist license as one side of the DECnet connection?

That way you may be able to determine if the issue is on the origination
side or answering side.

https://sourceforge.net/p/vms-ports/wiki/SimH-VAX%20in%20a%20Container/

Note that the lxc/lxd container is using Ubuntu 14.04. It does not work
in Ubuntu 16.04 because LXD requires a libvirt that allows specifying
cgroups which is newer than Ubuntu was providing for 16.04 when I last
tested.

If it still does not work on Ubuntu 17, perhaps you can update the
ticket (sorry do not have number handy) if it is still open and let them
know that is why people upgrading from 14.04 are complaining that their
LXC/LXD containers stopped working when they upgraded.

Regards,
-John

As far as I know, the linux DECnet subsystem is still part of the
current kernel sources. Nowadays the subsystem is no longer compiled
into the kernel, it comes as a kernel module. As far as I know, 17.04
contains the decnet kernel module.

You only need to change the sources if the kernel with your distro has
an incompatible change, usually a backport from newer kernels and the
distro neither provides the decnet kernel module nor the sources with
the required changes for their modifications.

"lina": typo or cut & paste error when posting here?
nice catch ... fortunately a typo during cleaning up to post here.

There is something definitely broken in ubuntu 17, possibly in the
dn_rt_set_next_hop() function at line 184 in dst.h per the kernel logs.
It logs a warning at exactly this function in both the dnping source and
target boxes.

I will follow up with ubuntu folks. Obviously VMS has no such issues.

I will also do a test with a SIMH vax to ubuntu to see what happens.

There is something definitely broken in ubuntu 17, possibly in the
dn_rt_set_next_hop() function at line 184 in dst.h per the kernel logs.
It logs a warning at exactly this function in both the dnping source and
target boxes.
Maybe. But from what I understand, the warning is about using a call to
dst_metric(), an old API, which should be replaced by some other
function. As far as I understand, it should not cause any of your
problems. I can see the very same warning on a system where decnet works
as expected and with an older kernel (3.13.0). But I'm sure the Ubuntu
people know more about this than I do.

Perfect advice, thank you. I gave up on Zesty, no regrets, went back to
trusty 14.04/3.13.0, and as you said, it works great. This is fantastic,
very exciting. Thanks again.
