Description of problem:
eth0 interface becomes unresponsive under high load; logs message "eth0: can't 
fill rx buffer (force [0|1])!".  Inteface is thereafter unable to ping itself, 
its gateway, be pinged from hosts on the same subnet, etc.  Bringing it up and 
down ('ifconfig eth0 down; ifconfig eth0 up') makes the issue go away.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:

Error recurrs several times a week on system

can you say what kind of network card this is ?
Comment 2 wcrosby 2002-10-14 11:59:58 EDT
lsmod shows the eepro100 module loaded; is that specific enough, or does more
information need to be gathered?  Thanks.
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2002-10-14 15:33:08 EDT
Jeff, one for you
Comment 4 Jeff Garzik 2002-10-25 14:04:50 EDT
Can you verify that this is fixed in the latest errata kernel (just released),
Red Hat 8.0, or the stock kernel.org kernel version 2.4.20-pre11?
