I have just installed the SLS 1.03 distribution of Linux (0.99.11) on my
computer. When the machine boots I get the error message:
ARP:Bad packet received on device "eth0"!
continuously, at a rate of about once every 5 seconds. The ethernet link seems
to otherwise work OK. I can ftp and telnet from my machine and telnet into my
machine (at least to the point of getting the login screen). If I fire up X,
the bash window does not display the error messages and ftp and telnet work
OK. If I pull the ethernet cable from the jack, the messages stop.
I have read the NET-2 FAQ and, to the best of my knowledge, have followed
their recommendations to setup the basic TCP/IP services only.
My network card is a 3Com 3c503/16, using thin wire. My computer is a PC_Brand
486-25(DX) with 16M RAM and 8M+ swap partition. The video adapter is an
Orchid ProDesigner II (TSENG 4000).
Any help would be appreciated.
