Description Lodewijk Smit 2006-11-22 01:06:23 UTC
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.

How reproducible:

Difficult, but solution is known :-)

Patch for solving this bug is available in kernel  
Can this patch be made available for RHEL 4.4 (backport to kernel 2.6.9)?
