Description Bill Nottingham 2006-02-07 14:00:35 EST
Description of problem:

The hardware:

04:01.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5700 Gigabit
Ethernet (rev 12) (14e4:1644)

The software:


What happens:

Using static IPs on the tg3 card, and the following autofs maps:

/mnt ldap:devserv.devel.redhat.com:nisMapName=auto.mnt,dc=devel,dc=redhat,dc=com

the tg3 card works, until autofs tries to mount something (in this case,
/mnt/redhat). At which point all traffic comes to a dead stop.

e1000 works fine.

With 2.6.15-1.1939_FC5, it seems better - it doesn't shut down networking
entirely, it just gives superblock errors trying to mount the NFS filesystems.
Comment 2 John W. Linville 2006-02-13 15:37:17 EST
Does this imply a data corruption problem? 
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2006-02-13 15:39:35 EST
In tg3? Don't know. What sort of data would you need?

And... in .1955_FC5... it works. So, closing.
