Tulip card? If so, try switching from the "tulip" driver to the
"old_tulip" driver..

Kernel 2.2.15 Problem

    After I have upgraded to the 2.2.15 kernel, it always appears to hang at
the line
"Bringing up eth0" during boot-up when my server is connected to the switch.
However, when I disconnect the server from the switch by removing the cable
temporary, it boots up fine!  But I haven't encountered this problem when I
was
using 2.2.14 kernel.  Is this a bug in 2.2.15 kernel?  Can anybody give me
some advise?

1. Feedback on 2.2.15 (wasRe: Kernel Stable: 2.2.15pre4 )

I've been trying the 2.2.15 prereleases, and so far they seem great.
2.2.15 pre 4 (subjectively speaking) made my system much zippier
than 2.2.13/4 and 2.2.15 pre 5 which I built last night, feels
faster still (and apparently has some rather neat debug code to
trap bad application memory use/kernel bugs).

So overall I'm very pleased. Many thanks to Alan and the guys who've
been working on the VM stuff. It feels great for me.

BTW I'm running this on Mandrake 6.1, Cyrix 6x86 MX 300, 64MB RAM.

Like I say, 2.2.15 feels like it's shaping up to be the best 2.2 kernel
yet by a significant margin (to me at least!)
