SubjectHelp, eth0: transmit timed out!
Date
Hi All,

Just installed Redhat 7.3 on an Athlon 2000 system (2.4.20).

We have a 3c905c network card, and when I try copying files from an nfs
mount I get this in the logs:

Mar 12 13:15:11 ark kernel: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
Mar 12 13:15:11 ark kernel: eth0: transmit timed out, tx_status 00 status

Mar 12 13:15:11 ark kernel: eth0: Resetting the Tx ring pointer.

Usually the machine freezes up after this, and I can't ping it, and when I
press
CTRL-ALT-DEL i get "INIT: cannot execute "echo"" and have to hit reset.

However this last time the machine came back after about 3 secs of no
network activity.

Now I was looking at some info on google, and people said to turn off
IO-APIC
in the kernel, but this was for 2.4.5, has this been fixed in 2.4.20?

Cheers
Dave
