Subjectifconfig weirdness on axp 2.1.126
I'm running vanilla 2.1.126 on a dec lx164 (600MHz alpha axp/
512Mb RAM etc etc), compiled w/egcs-1.1b. Runs absolutely wonderfully
but I've noticed a strange occurrance with ifconfig...
When I run ifconfig I get something like the following:
lo <snip>
RX packets:4 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
TX packets:0 errors: 322 dropped:4 overruns:0
eth0 <snip>
RX packets: 2944 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
TX packets:0 errors: 66057 dropped: 984 overruns:0

Now this looks quite bad for transmitting packets, but the network card
is actually running fine. Looking at /proc/net/dev shows the right
figures in
the right places. Any ideas what could be causing it? I did have a spot
disk corruption a few weeks ago (whilst running a very bastardised
which screwed around with the shared libraries, but I thought i'd
resolved it.
Go back to my 'stock' 2.0.35 kernel and it's okay too. Any ideas anyone?
