Marvell/Syskonnect Gigabit Ethernet, Linux 2.6.9 and 7.09 driver problem


Hello all,

there are a lot of questions about Marvel/Syskonnect hardware here.
There is another one - hopefully it's not absolutely stupid.

I have a problem with 7.09 version of the driver under Linux.
The hardware is:
- Intel P4 3.2 GHz CPU
- Asustek P5GD1 motherboard with on-board Marvell 88E8053 PCI
Express Gigabit LAN Controller. MB BIOS version is 1006.
The software is:
- Fedora Core 2
- Vanilla 2.6.9 kernel from ftp.kernel.org.

Running install.sh says that's all goes O.K. and, after module
loading, the following messages appears into system log:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Oct 28 09:08:44 localhost kernel: ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:02:00.0[A] -> GSI 17
(level, low) -> IRQ 17
Oct 28 09:08:44 localhost kernel: sk98lin: Network Device Driver v7.08
Oct 28 09:08:44 localhost kernel: (C)Copyright 1999-2004 Marvell(R).
Oct 28 09:08:44 localhost kernel: ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:02:00.0[A] -> GSI 17
(level, low) -> IRQ 17
Oct 28 09:08:44 localhost kernel: PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:02:00.0 to 64
Oct 28 09:08:44 localhost kernel: eth0: Yukon Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T Adapter
Oct 28 09:08:44 localhost kernel: PrefPort:A RlmtMode:Check Link State
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The network connection is configured to use DHCP. After
'/etc/init.d/network start', the kernel says:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Oct 28 09:08:44 localhost kernel: ip_tables: (C) 2000-2002 Netfilter core team
Oct 28 09:08:44 localhost kernel: eth0: -- ERROR --

Oct 28 09:08:44 localhost kernel: Msg: PCI express protocol violation error
Oct 28 09:08:44 localhost kernel: eth0: -- ERROR --
Oct 28 09:08:44 localhost kernel: Class: Hardware failure

Oct 28 09:08:44 localhost kernel: Msg: unexpected IRQ Status error
Oct 28 09:08:44 localhost kernel: eth0: Adapter failed.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Next, the following messages appears:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Oct 28 09:27:30 localhost ifup: Determining IP information for eth0...
Oct 28 09:27:32 localhost dhclient: DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 7
Oct 28 09:27:39 localhost dhclient: DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 19
Oct 28 09:27:58 localhost dhclient: DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 10
Oct 28 09:28:08 localhost dhclient: DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 10
Oct 28 09:28:18 localhost dhclient: DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 8
Oct 28 09:28:26 localhost dhclient: DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 7
Oct 28 09:28:33 localhost dhclient: No DHCPOFFERS received.
Oct 28 09:28:33 localhost ifup: failed.
Oct 28 09:28:33 localhost network: Bringing up interface eth0: failed
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, DHCP can't configure the network interface, probably due to driver
problems. With Windows XP SP2, network interface looks fine.

Re: Marvell/Syskonnect Gigabit Ethernet, Linux 2.6.9 and 7.09 driver problem

Hi,

I downloaded the latetst driver directly from syskonnect and that one works fine,
even with a 2.6.10 kernel.

For more details see : http://ta.twi.tudelft.nl/dv/staff/Le...nux_p5gd1.html

Bye,
Kees Lemmens.
