Kernel 2.1.125 hangs at Eth0

Kernel 2.1.125 hangs at Eth0

Post by Neil Cher » Thu, 22 Oct 1998 04:00:00

I've jumped from Kernel 2.0.35 to 2.1.125 (reason: 2.0.35 that came
with RedHat 5.1 would not compile without a lot of hassling for the
sound cards).

Now I am generally pleased with 2.1.125 but I've noticed a really weird
behavior during boot. The machine completely stops doing everything
at the following section of boot:

eth0: Setting Rx mode to 1 addresses.

It will stay that way until I hit the <Enter> key and then it will go
on it's merry way. I've noticed this on 2 different machines. Any
ideas as to why?



1. Kernel 2.1.125 and SCSI Card


Things were working fine with my LinuxPPC installation until I moved to
kernel 2.1.125.  Now my computer stops during the Linux boot process
with the following error:

(scsi0) <Adaptec AIC-7860 Ultra SCSI host adapter> found at PCI 14/0
(scsi0) Narrow Channel, SCSI ID = 7, 3/255 SCBs
(scsi0) Downloading sequencer code. . .  419 instructions downloaded
(scsi0) BRKADRINT error(0x8)
  Sequencer Ram Parity Error

Anyone seen this before?

I'm on a PowerCenter Pro w/ the internal Adaptec UltraSCSI card.  This
happens regardless of parity options and termination options.  It even
happens with nothing connected to the card.  The mere presence of the
card upsets the kernel.

Please help,

Eric Brueggemann
