Description Vlado Potisk 2005-09-26 05:06:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050909 Fedora/1.0.6-1.2.fc3 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
The FC3 kernel is affected by an annoying bug, fix is available upstream already. Please include it in the next kernel release.

The symptoms are:
- problem occurs on mainboards with the nForce4 chipset
- after some time the NIC suddenly stops working
- this message appears in the log repeatedly:
  nv_stop_tx: TransmitterStatus remained busy<7>eth0: tx_timeout:dead entries!
- reboot does not help, power must be switched off to make the NIC working again.

More information about the problem and the fix can be found here:

Bug 167674 concerning RHEL3 is similar to this.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
No special steps, just check if the LAN interface on a mainboard with the nForce4 mainboard is still working. In my case it locks up about once a day.

I clicked twice on the sumbit button, this is dup of the #169256. Sorry.
