I have three machines running 2.0.30. All three machines lock up
when I flood ping them ( ping -f ) and then do something that causes
some local disk I/O.
Two of the machines are Magitronic PCI 486Dx4-100 and the other is a
generic P100 clone. I really thought upgrading from 2.0.17 would fix
this probelm but it didn't. I also see the problem if I run 1.2.13!
I have tried DEC Tulip and AMD Lance ethernet cards and the results have
been the same.... I have tried all manner of BIOS settings (cache
disable, etc) with no luck!
Three out of four times a RESET will bring them back. Other times the
hard drive is nuked (partition table gone).
I am just about out of clues and would love to get some more.
