Description Inger Karin Haarbye 2001-05-23 20:09:30 UTC
Description of Problem:

After suspend on Dell Inspiron 8000 with buildt in minipci NIC 
(Actiontec) - the NIC doesn't work.
I get lots of these errors all the time: 
wait_for_cmd_done timeout!

How Reproducible:

every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. apm -s or suspend in other ways (close the laptop).

Additional Information:

Some people report that if you change from the "eepro100" to the "e100" module,
suspend works. This change needs to be made in /etc/modules.conf

Could you try this ?

Comment 2 Inger Karin Haarbye 2001-05-25 14:13:58 UTC
No, this didn't work. I tried it before with one of the betas, gave same 
results as eepro100. 
Now I tried it in Seawolf too - I did not get the same error message, but the 
network still doesn't come up after suspend.

/var/log/messages: (free translated from norwegian:)
SIOCSIFFLAGS: resource temporary unavailable
SIOCADDRT: Network is down
SIOCADDRT: Network is noe available.

(Seems like irq-problem maybe - since the driver now has got io-adress, not

I'm experiencing a similar (same?) problem on a T21 Thinkpad. My work around
is to compile eepro100 as a module and to explicitly reload before a network
restart in apmcontinue:
      [ "$NET_RESTART" = "yes" ] && {
           /etc/rc.d/init.d/network stop
           /sbin/rmmod eepro100
           /sbin/modprobe eepro100
           /etc/rc.d/init.d.network start

Does e100 driver have the same problem?  We are deprecating eepro100
in favor of e100.

Nevermind, closing bug as ancient.
