NIC problem?

Post by bbyeun » Fri, 21 Apr 2000 04:00:00

My Linux mail server stop responding when I ping it once in a while.  When
I check the screen of the Linux server, I got this message:  eth0:transmit
timed out, tx_status 00 status e000
Flags;bus-master 1, full 1; dirty 2157 current 2173
Down list 00000000 vs. 00250128

Could someone translate the message for me?  I'm using a 3com 3c905-tx NIC.

Thanks a lot.

The card is getting wedged. What's the driver version you are using?
What version of the card?

1. docking station nic and pcmcia nic problems

I have a Micron Transport XPE with a docking station and built in NIC (AMD
PCNet).  Also have a PCMCIA Megahertz Ethernet/modem card.  The networking
for the docking station nic fails to start.  The pcmcia card works fine when
it is plugged in, which it usually is.  I've looked at several scripts to
see why the one nic won't start.  /etc/sysconfig/network checks
(/etc/sysconfig/pcmcia) to see if there is a pcmcia device (line
pcmcia=yes).  If it finds it, it skips the eth loop and never starts the
nic.  If I change the pcmcia script to be pcmcia=no, then the nic starts
and, of course, the pcmcia card doesn't.

Does anyone else have this problem and is there a work around or fix?
I'd like to have both working.  My linux kernel is 2.0.33
