    SubjectLockups with Intel EtherExpress Pro 10/100
    Hello,
    I thought I would report this to the kernel group to see if anyone
    has a suggestion or solution:
    Hardware:
    Intel Nightshade motherboard Dual Pentium II 450
    512 Meg memory
    3 Intel EtherExpress Pro 10/100
    on board ncr53c8xx

    Software:
    kernel 2.2.1 or 2.2.5
    NO X
    (These are massive servers)

    Situation:
    The machine is crusing along with a load average of 0.01 and all of a
    sudden one of the ethernet boards will lock up.

    The only way to reset the card is to reboot the machine.
    This has happend in different PCI slots different kernel versions
    different PCI cards and at both 10 an 100 speeds.

    Here are two proc infos to show machine setups

    Both of these machines have had at least one lockup. I have 8 machines
    with near identical setups. The lookups occur at about a rate of
    1 per week.

    Please cross mail any info to:
