Ubuntu 6.06 and Linksys NIC not playing nicely. Hangs on lodaing hardware drivers.


I installed Ubuntu 6.06 on a computer w/ some old hardware on it and everything was fine. After everything was running smoothly, I tried putting one of my Linksys LNE100TX LAN cards in and Ubuntu started to not boot up. It would freeze when the hardware drivers are loading. I've tried two separate cards, but neither worked. Any ideas? Is there any more information I need to post?

Thanks much for all your help!

Could it be my BIOS settings? I'm not sure if that'd be the case because the card worked fine when I had Windows installed on it, but it was just a suggestion. How can I turn off the spash screen when loading Ubuntu to get it to print out when booting up so I can see exactly where it hangs? That might help me and also help you guys help me.

Does that mean you have an on-board NIC active as well as the new card ???.
I think when I had an issue like that I had to disable the (dead) onboard. Yes it was dead, but I still had to - in the BIOS options somewhere; just flounder around till you find it (mine was an ASUS P4P something or other).

As for the boot messages on Ubuntu, I think F2 should show them.

Good idea, but sorry, no, I don't have an onboard NIC as well. I just have the PCI card. And thanks for the help for boot options, I'll see if I can get rid of the splash screen with that. Any other ideas?

Here's some extra information that I got from disabling the Ubuntu splash screen:
Quote:
eth0: ADMtek Comet rev 17 at 0001e000, MAC ADDRESS, IRQ 11.
BUG: soft lockup detected on CPU#0!
Pid: 2859, comm: modprobe
...
By MAC ADDRESS I mean the MAC of my card that's installed. Does any of this help? Is the rest of the message needed? Info about EIP and the registers and what not?

Looks like you might have a real problem.
Head over to ubuntu.com, and hit the "Bug reporting" link. From there you can get to Malone and see if anyone else has reported this, or maybe post it as a new bug.
