NIC kernel error
My network hangs every so often and the following message appears on ttys0
eth0: RX MAC fifo overflow smac
running kernel 2.6.11-powerpc-smp and the network chip in my G4
according to lspci is
Apple UniNorth GMAC (Sun GEM) (rev 01)
Has anyone experienced this message? If so is this a kernel bug or a
network configuration error?
I recently switched from 10 Mbps to 100 Mbps line and this error occurs
Restarting the network fixes the network connection.
