SubjectPROBLEM: memory allocation error with token ring tms380/abyss modules [follow-up]
Hello, I got a few responses to this original problem... thanks! I've
compiled the abyss.o and tms380 token ring drivers into the kernel as
opposed to running them as modules. Yesterday the system crashed again and
I copied down all the Oops stuff and ran it through ksymoops... I'm
including the output from that in this e-mail. I hope it is useful to
the maintainer of the tms380 code and maybe the abyss code!

BTW, Adam Fritzler is listed as the tms380 maintainer,
but his e-mail address, listed as mid@auk.cx, is failing and the URL
listed -- http://www.auk.cx/tms380tr/ -- also fails.

Output from ksymoops, all other information in the original e-mail still
applies:

[root@ohdrouter /root]# ksymoops oops.7.2.2001
ksymoops 0.7c on i686 2.4.5. Options used
-V (default)
-k /proc/ksyms (default)
-l /proc/modules (default)
-o /lib/modules/2.4.5/ (default)
-m /usr/src/linux/System.map (default)

Warning: You did not tell me where to find symbol information. I will
assume that the log matches the kernel and modules that are running
right now and I'll use the default options above for symbol resolution.
If the current kernel and/or modules do not match the log, you can get
more accurate output by telling me the kernel version and where to find
map, modules, ksyms etc. ksymoops -h explains the options.

Warning (compare_maps): ksyms_base symbol

2 warnings issued. Results may not be reliable.

I hope this is useful to the maintainer(s)!

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Thank you,
Brian
