Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 216801
sky2 transmitter lockup (Marvell network interface freeze)
Last modified: 2007-11-16 20:14:54 EST
Description of problem:
sky2 transmitter lockup
All networking stops every few days; reboot is necessary.
Problem and solution is described in:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
We have problems with Marvell 88E8053 gigabit ethernet interface.
This interface is used on all recent ASUS motherboards (e.g. P5W DH Deluxe)
As a consequence, RHEL networking is unreliable on all these systems.
Difficult, but solution is known :-)
Patch for solving this bug is available in kernel 126.96.36.199
Can this patch be made available for RHEL 4.4 (backport to kernel 2.6.9)?
