Subject2.2.1 and Tulip weirdness
Hi,

I just had something weird going on here. When I came here the machine
(Dual PPro, 128MB RAM, running an unpatched 2.2.1SMP) was writing to the
logs like theres no tomorrow. System response was normal, but one of the
network-interfaces was down, and I was unable to bring it back up. The
logs showed about 30000 lines of:
Feb 25 09:38:49 xpc29 kernel: eth0: Somethinffffff.
Feb 25 09:38:49 xpc29 kernel: eth0: Something Wicked happeffffff.
Feb 25 09:38:49 xpc29 kernel: eth0ffffff.
Feb 25 09:38:49 xpc29 kernel: eth0: Something Wickedffffff.
Feb 25 09:38:49 xpc29 kernel: eth0ffffff.
Feb 25 09:38:49 xpc29 kernel: eth0: Something Wicked happeneffffff.
Feb 25 09:38:49 xpc29 kernel: eth0: Soffffff.
Seems this whole thing started with no reason, last entry before this is
from Feb 23....
Rebooting the machine changed nothing, except I noticed that the The
HW-address of one of the network-adapters (both are Digital DC21041
Tulip's) was set to 0:0:0:0:0:ff. Dont know if this might be a result of
the reboot or whatever....
Booting some older kernels changed nothing on this situation, but after
swapping the two cards everthing works just fine now....
The drivers are compiled in, if you need any more information like
.config, System.map or more info from the logs, just give me a call...

Cheers,
Guenter
