Description Chris Adams 2004-06-24 13:32:38 UTC
I changed out the motherboard in my system to an EPoX 8KRAI, which is
an VIA KT600 chipset board with a VIA VT6102 ethernet chip.  The old
mboard was dual processor, so I had the SMP kernel booting by default,
and everything worked on the new mboard that way.  When I switched to
the UP kernel, I got:

NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
eth0: Transmit timed out, status 0003, PHY status 786d, resetting... 
eth0: Reset not complete yet. Trying harder.

Disabling IRQ #10

during boot, and then the network didn't work.  Reboot into SMP and it
works (so that's what I'm running now).  Suggestions?

Even with the SMP kernel, I get a lot of timeouts:

NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
eth0: Transmit timed out, status 0000, PHY status 786d, resetting...

The problem isn't just the network; it appears to be ACPI related.

Everything that gets assigned to IRQ 10 with ACPI enabled doesn't
work; network times out, sound loops, etc.  If I boot with "acpi=off"
it is all assigned to IRQ 5 instead, and seems to work.  The network
still times out sometimes though, so I would suspect there's still a

is this any better with the 2.6.10 updates ?

Comment 4 Chris Adams 2005-01-26 22:57:56 UTC
Not in some quick testing.  I have updated to FC3 (clean install to
another drive actually), so I'll check a little more when I get a
chance, but last I tried, the system hangs (or takes a long time)
during boot (when it hits the USB init) if I don't put "acpi=off". 
The built in sound and network are flakey even with "acpi=off", so
I've put in a NIC and sound card (that's why it'll take some work for

If there more things to try or debugging info to gather, let me know.

Comment 5 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 05:35:34 UTC
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
