Red Hat 4.2 and 3c590 Vortex problem.

Red Hat 4.2 and 3c590 Vortex problem.

Post by Rob Clar » Tue, 10 Jun 1997 04:00:00



I don't know if this is a Red Hat problem, a kernel 2.0.30 problem, or
something entirely different. But the problem has only occured in the
last couple of days since I've upgraded to RH 4.2. It goes something like
this.

My machine is set up on a network, and is somewhat dependent on a main
server. Home directories are there, it resolves ip addresses etc...

Occasionaly (Twice so far) I critically lose contact with the macine in
question with the following errors (it has been suggested that the times
it has happened coincide with heavy network activity):

eth0: transmit timed out, tx_status 88 status e000.
eth0: Transmitter encountered 16 collisions -- network network cable problem?
  Flags; bus-master 0, full 0; dirty 0 current 0.
  Down list 0035f000 vs. 00609210.
 0: 00609210  length 00000000 status 00000000
 1: 00609220  length 00000000 status 00000000
 2: 00609230  length 00000000 status 00000000
 3: 00609240  length 00000000 status 00000000
 4: 00609250  length 00000000 status 00000000
 5: 00609260  length 00000000 status 00000000
 6: 00609270  length 00000000 status 00000000
 7: 00609280  length 00000000 status 00000000
 8: 00609290  length 00000000 status 00000000
 9: 006092a0  length 00000000 status 00000000
 10: 006092b0  length 00000000 status 00000000
 11: 006092c0  length 00000000 status 00000000
 12: 006092d0  length 00000000 status 00000000
 13: 006092e0  length 00000000 status 00000000
 14: 006092f0  length 00000000 status 00000000
 15: 00609300  length 00000000 status 00000000

Repeated indefinitly every few seconds.

This problem gets passed on to nfs services,
I lose filesystems etc..

None of the Sun machines on the same hub have any problems.

Rebooting is the only thing I've managed to do. And this won't happen
cleanly due to a portmap failure or something.

Has anyone seen this before? Any suggestions what I can do about it?
Can the card driver be reset or something?

Please CC copies to me personally or at least post to:
uk.comp.os.linux.

Thanks.

Rob.

Repeated indefinitly every few seconds.

This problem gets passed on to nfs services,
I lose filesystems etc..

None of the Sparc/Solaris machines on the same hub have any problems.

The problem is not recovered from, and a reboot fails and hangs due
to a portmap failure, when unmounting filesystems. Leaving only the reset
button as an option.

Has anyone seen this before? Any suggestions what I can do about it?
Can the card driver be reset or something?

Please CC copies to me personally,

Thanks.
