I'm using a generic i686 processor on a i386 pc hardware.
I have installed the new kernel on errata section (2.4.3-12) and now i have
a problem with my ethernet card realtek 8139.
Usign the module 8139too and when i send a file using ftp connection, the
system crash immediatelly and i need to manual hardware reset.
If i restore the old modules of 2.4.2 version (8139too_old), all works
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install a realtek ethernet card 8139.
2.Install default 7.1 rh linux and upgrade to kernel 2.4.3-12.
3.Try to send or receive a file via FTP.
Actual Results: The system crash!!!!
Expected Results: Normal ftp operation.
Does it work better if you replace "8139too" with "8319too_old" in the
/etc/modules.conf file ?
woops you already tried. should have seen that the first time I read the report.
Any way, yes. With the old module it works well.
