shutdown hang during eth0 shutdown


Hi,

I'm having trouble shutting down, in that every time I am connected to a network with DHCP, the shutdown hangs while shutting down eth0. When I reboot, I am chided for an unclean shutdown. The hang also occurs if I do an ifdown or network stop.

I'm running RedHat 8.0 with kernel 2.4.20-20.8 on a Dell Inspiron 8000. My network card is a D-Link DFE-690TXD; no errors in the logs during startup. The card works just fine otherwise.

I don't have the option of using a static IP address without some major bureaucratic hurdle-jumping.

Thanks!

I'm having the same problem on a Toshiba A10 laptop. The only hint I have is that while I was adding the NIC settings a message came up once that said something like... "Can not find alias e100"

My problem began after seeing this message.

There are no updates to messages during normal shutdown as error logging is turned off just before the hang. I will try the ifdown manually and see if anything is logged.

ifdown eth0 hangs and nothing is logged in messages.

One common reason for a hang when shuting down a nic is if the driver is a module and your distro is configured to unload the module when shuting down.

I don't use RedHat so I can't help directly, but this might point a RedHat type in the right direction.

One way to test this is to execute:

rmmod <module>

Where <module> is replaced by the name of your module as in

rmmod e1000

If that is the problem, one workaround is to build the driver into the kernel, rather than as a module
