Hi, I just recently put together a new system and I'm having an odd problem
with this D-Link dfe-530tx.
On the first of 3 installs of slackware 7 I tried to let the installer probe
for ethernet devices and it locked up solid. Same for FreeBSD 4.1.1.
This is what i get with the stock kernel when I try to load via-rhine at boot:
/lib/modules/2.2.13/net/via-rhine.o: init_module: Device or resource busy
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
/lib/modules/2.2.13/net/via-rhine.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.2.13/net/via-rhine.o
/lib/modules/2.2.13/net/via-rhine.o: insmod via-rhine failed
Under 2.4.0-test8 (and test9) however I get this instead:
via-rhine.c:v1.08b-LK1.1.6 8/9/2000 Written by Donald Becker
eth0: VIA VT6102 Rhine-II at 0xdc00, 00:00:00:00:00:00, IRQ 11.
Note the hardware address with all zeroes. That can't be good...
Also, ifconfig shows TX errors after I attempt to ping another machine I have
here. Error count seems to increase without me doing anything as well:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:00:00:00:00:00
inet addr:192.168.0.12 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:304 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
Interrupt:11 Base address:0xdc00
And just now I notice that dmesg is chock full of this:
NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
eth0: Transmit timed out, status 0000, PHY status 0000, resetting...
I'm pretty baffled by this since the card seems to work fine under win98..
And if anyone is thinking that it's a rtl8139 instead, lspci shows this:
00:09.0 Ethernet controller: VIA Technologies, Inc.: Unknown device 3065 (rev 42)
Anything I can try or is my card just plain buggered?
Thanks for listening.
