[eepro100] wait_for_cmd_done timeout, report on installing Intel e100 driver
Fri Jan 24 13:29:04 2003
Well I am not moving the 30 sites that are on the server I was having
problems with to another. I can not get it stable.. I went from Last Friday
to this morning (longest in a long time) I stripped the box to 1 NIC,
disabled the onboard NIC, I was still getting Command 80 errors (a few a day
but they always recovered) This morning it was a Command 0070 and the card
I was even running RH 7.1 with the noapic line and still did not help. I
feel this could be a hardware issue with the 2450's as I had one guy reply
stating he had the same problem and since getting Dell to swap the
motherboard he has not seen the problem.
