ISA NE2000 Clone + 2.2.15 SMP Kernel Problems

ISA NE2000 Clone + 2.2.15 SMP Kernel Problems

Post by Nimish Phili » Tue, 23 May 2000 04:00:00



Hello

** Please e-mail me. I don't have frequent access to the newsgroup**

My setup is : Abit BP6 Mobo  (SMP)
              2x500mhz Celeron CPU's (not overclocked)
    1x NE2000 Clone NC (ISA slot 2)
    1x RAGE IIc AGP VC
           I.P : 196.0.0.100
           hostname : muon

second machine I.P: 196.0.0.101 (uniproc Win95)
     hostname: lepton

These are the only machines on the LAN. I'm using BNC connectors and I
know the cable works.

Points below refer to muon.

- I know the NC works. I tried it on a uniproc Win95 machine and a
uniproc Linux 2.0.35 machine.

- I've tried with 2.2.13-SMP and 2.2.15-SMP and it does the same thing
  ne.o is compiled is a module and it loads fine according to
"/var/log/messages" attached below.

- I can ping the machine ( muon) 196.0.0.100 from the console. i.e. it
pings itself.

- When I try to ping another machine in the LAN. i.e. 196.0.0.101
  I get the following error:

What am I doing wrong?

Thanking you.

 
 
 

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!)
Mike
