Re: Unidentified subject!
hi, I got a similar problem on a machine running IPCHAINS. after an upredictable time period the machine suddenly forgets the ethernet card and results 100% packet loss even ifconfig shows the interface is there and then crashes. I can see the card starts blinking and packets are coming but there is nothing in the log about that and the interface is there but it is not. I tried dist-upgrade ( only the base system was installed on it and mc nothing else ) and it did not help. I have changed the ethernet card and it did not help and as a result I changed the distribution to lame Redhat 6.2 for trial and it works, no problem after that my manager said " never touch a running system" so I could not switch back to debian. My kernel was 2.2.19 pre 17 and nothing unstable. I believe the problem is with the 2.2.19 kernel since the only difference between the base systems of redhat and debian 2.2r3 is 2.2.14 and 2.2.19 not much else. I recommend you to upgrade your sys to 2.2.4 kernel.
