This is somewhat off topic - sorry for that.
I am trying to use the linux driver for the SK9D21 GigE copper card
on a RedHat 7.2 system with a 2.4.13 kernel.
I have two athlon mp boxes with such a card connected with a cross-over
cable. Running netpipe (NPtcp) from one box to the other causes
a kernel oops.
I am quite sure that the oops is due to the driver
(without that driver the kernel runs fine).
The first thing I would like to do is to log the oops message. Right now
it goes to the console only - it does not appear in the log files
although syslog sends everything of severity *.info to /var/log/messages.
/proc/kmsg is empty.
There is a /proc/kcore file, but it is a binary file. I tried to read
it using ksymoops, but it generates a huge amount of garbage on the
screen but not the error message I see on the console.
I have tried the -s option to klogd with no success either.
Is there a way of getting the error message into a file (without typing
it off the console screen)?
Thanks for suggestions.
