Ok. I won't use that card anymore, and wont compile this part of code
neither. But I still doesn't know why does my 2.4.0-test11 crash to black:
no console, not keyboard, no logs, nothing... like a cut on the
Just some mins ago I got another interesting thing: (with the eepro100
I've been logged in trough ssh. Like 5-10 mins before the crash the packet
loss jumped up to around 30% (the network was ok, the other hosts on the
same network came with 0% loss) Then after a while no answare to the ping,
