I have now tried version 0.46C of 3c59x.c (dated 10/14/97) - without luck.
The server freezed in the same manner after about 20 minutes. No obvious
specific action trigged the freeze.


Summary: Server freezes with clean kernel 2.0.31 (and - I have now
discovered - also with an updated version of 3c59x.c). Network support
compiled staticly into kernel; no support for other network devices.
Network card: 3Com Fast EtherLink XL PCI (alias Boomerang) (3C905-TX rev.
B) running at 100Mbit. Computer: Pentium, HX-motherboard, 32MB RAM.
