Realtek 8168/8111 hang on high load


I'm using a notebook that have a realtek 8168/8111 (r1000) ethernet that hangs during high load (big download and/or big upload). Currently I'm using Kubuntu Dapper. I don't think it's a hardware problem, cause i never had this problem while using windows.

I think that this has something to do with the ethernet not detecting the network speed and duplex correctly. But when I try to control it using 'ethtool', it fails (Dapper's kernel is not recent enough). So I downloaded the module source from realtek's webserver. When I compiled it, I got these errors :

/home/ari197/Downloads/r1000_v1.05/src/r1000_n.c:1295: error: conflicting types for ‘r1000_tx_action’
/home/ari197/Downloads/r1000_v1.05/src/r1000_n.c:137: error: previous declaration of ‘r1000_tx_action’ was here
/home/ari197/Downloads/r1000_v1.05/src/r1000_n.c:1344: error: conflicting types for ‘r1000_rx_action’
/home/ari197/Downloads/r1000_v1.05/src/r1000_n.c:136: error: previous declaration of ‘r1000_rx_action’ was here
make[3]: *** [/home/ari197/Downloads/r1000_v1.05/src/r1000_n.o] Error 1

any ideas why it won't compile. Does anybody know any other possibility that might cause the system to crash ??

Thanks before

I'd say that your diagnosis is correct in saying that the driver was broken and probably causing the machine to hang. Good call.

The compile error is meaningless to me, however. Make sure you've got the most recent driver for your kernel version, that you have the kernel source that matches your running kernel, and whatever module tools you need (module-init-tools on debian, for example).


compile error, driver, impossible
