Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 214594
tlan driver quits
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:48 EST
Description of problem: After several hours of operation, the tlan network
interface ceases to work under FC5. No messages in any log that I can find
(suggestions please!). Items of particular interest: server ran flawlessly
under FC4 for two years -recent upgrade to FC5 provoked the problem. I have two
tlan NICs (Compaq Netelligent 10/100) installed -both exhibit the same problem.
It is possible to recover the problem simply by rmmod tlan/modprobe tlan.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.18-1.2200.fc5smp #1 SMP Sat Oct 14 17:15:35 EDT 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
How reproducible: Not easy, but consistent: Start server, wait for up to 12 hours.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start server
2. wait up to twelve hours
Network interface ceases to work.
Network interface works continuously.
Additional info: Server is Proliant 3000 6/550. Output from lspci:
00:07.0 Network controller: Compaq Computer Corporation Netelligent 10/100 TX
PCI UTP (rev 10)
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 10

while I do, Chris could you please do the following:
1) Enable your syslogd to catch KERN_DEBUG messages
2) add the debug=0xffffffff option to your modprobe.conf for your tlan module
3) send in the message log after the device has stopped working.
