Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-source-2.6.17

I've had 2 occurences of an overnight complete computer hang (no keyboard/mouse action brings it out of black screen when I come back to it.

Both times the computer has been left on running KTorrent, both times the computer has logged the following to /var/log/syslog: [17230758.016000] NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out

This bug has been reported before; for more information see the duplicate bug #68338. It seems that a fix has been uploaded and is in edgy-proposed with request for testing.

As a workaround for this bug you could use the sk98lin driver instead of sky2, by adding a blacklist entry for the latter to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and rebooting.

Please try the kernel in -proposed, which has an updated sky2 driver.

I have a similar problem on a dapper system - *very* reproducable, whenever copying files from a gigabit host, takes about 5 minutes to hang. Ethernet interface is then unusuable, but machine stays stable.

Problem still exists in 2.6.17-50, the latest kernel I've been able to find .deb files for.

Trying the blacklist solution..

Well, the system still finds the card with that module blacklisted.. time will tell whether it locks or not, I've just started another attempt to copy all my mp3s from a server that is being retired to the machine in question (both have gig E cards, this has been a sure-fire way to get the machine incommunicado so far)

The 18 month support period for Edgy Eft 6.10 has reached its end of life. As a result, we are closing the linux-source-2.6.17 Edgy Eft kernel task. However, development has already began for the upcoming Intrepid Ibex 8.10 release. It would be helpful if you could test the upcoming release and verify if this is still an issue - http://www.ubuntu.com/testing . If the issue still exists, please update this report by changing the Status of the "linux" task from "Incomplete" to "New". We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make this transition. Thanks!
