Description of problem:
i686 with pci LNE100TX v4 NIC hangs at eth0 start on boot or when
accessing network if not DHCP. Using driver from distribution.
Reproducible simply by installing normally and running first boot if using
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install default network configuration - DHCP
Actual Results: Boot hangs at eth0 start
Expected Results: OK and communicates properly
I was able to boot with a manual IP address after setting my network to
manual addresses as well. At one point I was able to ping out to my other
PC and the router, but the network address had to be set to 192.168.0.254
instead of 192.168.0.0 and I was unable to get to DNS over the gateway of
192.168.0.1 which works fine from Windows. If manual addressing is set to
a network of 192.168.0.0, I still get the hang when I first attempt to
access the network.
I found I could get past this problem by moving the NIC to PCI slot 3 from PCI
slot 4 where it shared IRQ 10 with the USB. It shares IRQ 10 with the sound
card now, but I haven't yet gotten the sound card to work. When I do get a
working driver for it, I may get the conflict again. Why won't the driver share
to IRQ as Windows 98 was?
Virtually all linux drivers share irqs.
Can you tell me what kind of machine this is (single CPU, which one etc)
Also, the output of "lspci -v" would be very helpful.
Created attachment 18332 [details]
output of /proc/pci
Did you look at attached /proc/pci listing?
Yes, and there was nothing weird or abnormal I could spot. I've seen
more bugs where the USB code sometimes refuses to share interrupts.
Is your keyboard a USB keyboard by chance ?
