oversized frame warnings
Tue Aug 18 13:38:27 1998
I'm using quite an old tulip.c (0.77) with 2.0.30 (for the sake of SMP
stability). I've noticed that when I plug the system into a 100baseT hub,
I always get:
eth1: Oversized Ethernet frame spanned multiple buffers, status 7fffceff!
eth1: Oversized Ethernet frame spanned multiple buffers, status 063d81a2!
But if I plug into a switch, it ceases. This has happened quite a bit.
I'd rather not pay the price-per-port for switches rather than hubs. Is
this an artifact of 0.77? Should I upgrade? I need a combination of
linux kernel, tulip.c and buslogic.c that won't cpu deadlock on me....
