SubjectRE: intel etherpro100 on 2.2.18p21 vs 2.2.18p17
Date
FWIW, I have a dual-proc SuperMicro motherboard P3DM3 with integrated
Adaptec SCSI and Intel 8255x built-in NIC.

Sometimes on a cold boot I get the "kernel: eth0: card reports no RX
buffers" that repeats, but if I follow it with a warm boot the message
doesn't appear (even on subsequent warm boots). So this is definitely
reproducible, but it doesn't happen every time.

I can't offer much more than that, but at least you know you're not the only
one experiencing this.

Subject: intel etherpro100 on 2.2.18p21 vs 2.2.18p17
We have several Supermicro 370DL3 boards (scsi, built into epro100, dual
pentium iii) - which are giving the following ethernet card error on
2.2.18p21, but not on 2.2.18p17. This error has happened on 3 out of 4
boards with this configuration.

Oct 18 12:17:34 db1 kernel: eth0: card reports no RX buffers.
The above message repeats itself and the ethernet card does not work.

On bootup:

I believe this has been an ongoing issue for these intel nics?
