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 ?
lsmod shows the eepro100 module loaded; is that specific enough, or does more
information need to be gathered? Thanks.
Jeff, one for you
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?
no activity, assuming fixed.
