Description Seth Lepzelter 2003-10-29 16:40:18 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.0.2)
Gecko/20021120 Netscape/7.01

Description of problem:
If the 3c59x module is loaded, but no communication is attemped, it appears
fine.  Once communication is attempted, it never actually succeeds, and the
console fills up with messages about dirty registers.

I'll attach a sample from messages.

here's the beginning of the message:
Flags; bus-master 1, dirty 1(1) current 1(1)
Transmit list 00000000 vs. c3f71240.
0: @c3f71200  length 8000002a status 8000002a
1: @c3f71240  length 00000000 status 00000000
2: @c3f71280  length 00000000 status 00000000
3: @c3f712c0  length 00000000 status 00000000

BTW, the fibre version of the card appears to work flawlessly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a 3c905TX
2. attempt communication

Actual Results:  no communication succeeds, cryptic messages on the console

Expected Results:  should be able to communicate flawlessly.

Additional info:

I'll attach the relevant lines from messages.

The hardware that it's been tried on are:
Asus A7N8X and
Abit KR7A

The 3com cards are known to be fine, worked with WS 2.1 and currently work with
windows XP/2000.

See bug #102685!
It is known since 2003-08-19.
An attention: you can only reproduce this bug with the Boomerang card!

Turn Kudzu off at runlevel boot with chkconfig --level 345 off. Then 
reboot and the nic should work. Let me know if that works. Thanks

Appears to be working beautifully.
