we have 1-2 servers running 2.4.0-test9 and we got this error ...

is there any patch to 2.2.18pre ? since the server has to run on sunday
we can still make the crazy tests 3 days. it would be cool to fix it to
2.2.X if the bug is known ;)

er, "me too":

Unless this is "mostly harmless" a backport of any fix to 2.2.xx would be
received most gratefully.

Thanks,

We are having the same problem with eepro100 on a Compaq DL360.

v1.11 of eepro100.c fixed the problem:

The eepro100 problem (2.2.18pre17 stock) happens here too: "card reports
no resources" and then the network stalls for few minutes.

The hack suggested by David Richardson (
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=96514412914742&w=2)
did not help.

The Becker's driver from ftp://ftp.scyld.com/pub/network/eepro100.c cures
the error messages, but the network still stalls, and worse yet, seems to
stall forever (as opposed to few minutes with 2.2.18pre17 driver).

A network problem is not out of question (although the rest of the network
works just fine, and we did try another HUB port). It could also be flaky
card, but the machine and the card worked fine for years in their past
life under NT.

This is dual PPro200, 256MB, nothing fancy.

You should use the Intel e100 driver at
http://support.intel.com/support/network/adapter/pro100/100Linux.htm.
It works much better than eepro100.

Thats not the general consensus, but its worth trying in case it works best
for a given problem. In paticular it knows about bugs with combinations of
transceivers which the eepro100 driver does not.

Alan,

I agree with your point. In term of usability, the e100 driver has a wider
range of support for the Intel NIC cards.

yes. even is setup is not clean, it seems to work with 24-25Mbs since
I have no errors.

after 2h it still works. maybe it will crash later. check it later.
