Subject: Re: What causes these TCP packet getting lost in linux kernel

i don't know why, no matter I capture packets on my Ubuntu PC or
Android device with tcpdump,  open the output file with wireshark, all
output packets are marked with "incorrect checksum", but it seems that
this problem don't affect  subsequent packets interaction. why?
