Question Network activity causes Acer 1520 portable running RH9.1 to lock up


Hello Linux Questions forum!

I have an Acer 1520 laptop with RTL8139 Gigabit Ethernet adapter and RH 9.1 installed on it. everything seems to work well except when there is sustained network activity (like running a VNC viewer or transferring big files), the machine locks up...hard! No kernel dumps or X-window complaints. Even pinging the machine from an external terminal returns nothing. Power off is the only way to reset it! :( Has anyone seen this problem before?

It is possible that there is a hardware interrupt conflict causing this. What can I do to fix it? I have added the output from dmesg below. HEELLLPPP!!!!!!


Cheers,
Bill

8139 is 100Mbps chipset. You are using 8169. Are you sure you did not load the 8139too module by mistake? Check "lsmod" to see which modules you have loaded.

It is quite possible that module for 8139 chipset would load even when using 8169 - so this might be the source of your problems.

Hi..and thanks for the suggestion.

I checked the modules and indeed it is loading the 8169 driver. So this is not the problem. I suspect that all the IRQ routing conflicts which pop up during boot up could be connected. What do you think? What does this mean? Is there a way to correct this? (My older desktop BIOS allows some control over this, but the Acer BIOS is next to useless...) Could there be a problem with the 8169 driver itself? Everything else seems to work OK.

Cheers!

Just a brief note to say that a complete re-install seems to have fixed the problem. Still have no idea what went wrong... Something deep in the bowels of Linux must have been subtly corrupted...

Cheers!
