I had the exact problem with SuSE Linux: starting from Kernel SuSE-2.2.18, wine
doesn't work anymore, but if I use a self compiled "stock" kernel, it works
again. It's a pity I know little of both Wine and Kernel tcp/ip, and I don't
have time to check kernels and diffs... :-(
I don't know about Mandrake, but SuSE distributes a tar.gz with all the patches
they apply to their kernels. If Mandrake does something similar, I guess a few
"apply a part of the patches - compile - test" cycle should help spot the

If anyone on the list has ideas on tests I could do to gather more info, I'll be
glad to help (I still have SuSE stock kernels installed, so I can test
differences in behaviours between different versions rather quickly)
