Integrated RealTek 8139/8139C and Mandrake 9.1


Hi all,

I have a Shuttle SS40G mini system that has a RealTeak 8139/8139C network card integrated in the motherboard.

Previously I had Mandrake 9 on the machine working fine, but recently had to reinstall due to problems with the hard drive failing, and so installed Mandrake 9.1.

Everything is working fine, except for the network card.

The network card appears to be detected, and there is an alias line in the /etc/modules.conf for it, but DHCP fails, and if I assign a static IP I can not ping.

Any suggestions?

Attached are outputs from /proc/pci and ifconfig.

Wink Fixed ;)

Fixed it.

Problem appears to be the IRQ > 16.

Disable APIC in the BIOS and thats it. All detected and working wonderfully

APIC sort of gets round the problem of only have 16 hardware IRQs, and allows more. The problem is Linux seems to only understand 16 IRQs, so when APIC is on, and some devices are assigned IRQs higher, it freaks - like it didn't pick up my network card.

You should find an option in the BIOS:

To get into the bios you need to press a certain key while your machine is booting up - a line should appear breifly telling you which key to press.

You have to press it quickly mind, or you miss it.

Normally the key is something like: f2, del, esc or f10.

Well, I can get into BIOS n probs, but there doesnt seem to be any mention of apic.
I think this might be the problem though, since when my computer is booting (before lilo), it says the network interface has irq of 11, yet with ifconfig linux thinks its irq is 17

Had a quick look through your motherboards manual, and it doesnt appear that you can disable APIC on this board.

You may need to e-mail their tech support..

encode, you could also add 'noapic' to the 'append =' line in /etc/lilo.conf. For example, if your lilo.conf has a line saying:

append = "quiet devfs=mount hdc=ide-scsi"

then change it to:

append = "quiet noapic devfs=mount hdc=ide-scsi"

This will achieve the same effect as turning it off in the BIOS.

Once you have modified /etc/lilo.conf, run (as root):

lilo

This will make the changes to your bootloader. Then when you re-boot, your hardware will be configured as though the apic was turned off.

Well, you could try adding 'noapic' to the 'append=' line in /ect/lilo.conf. Have you successfully installed Mandrake 9.1, or is this problem preventing that? In what stage of the boot process does your pc freeze?

I tried all of the above but the Network card Realtek 8139c under mandrake 9.1 is still giving me problems. It still says Network Watchdog timeout. But the same card under WindowsXP (I have dual boot) seems to be working fine! --- Somebody please help!!!!

NETDEV WATCHDOG TIMEOUT

I too am getting these errors on my network card Realtek 8139c. At the first install of FEDORA core 1 everything worked. After that the second boot onwards the card gives me the following errors. I am including the output of dmesg, lspci and /proc/pci for reference. Can anybody help me on this???

I have tried giving "noapic" to grub at the command line . Also switched off apic at BIOS level but this problem is still occuring.

Thanks.

Yes, It happens with Knoppix too! Even on the first attempt. So what could FEDORA be doing in the first install that gets my card too work but later on (after a second boot) the same error comes. And why does the same hardware work properly in Windows XP? What is that windows is doing that Linux is not???
