Bug #1356

Updated by t_dfbsd over 4 years ago

With a Dell Inspiron 8000 laptop and a Xircom cardbus card, I cannot
connect to anything on the network. DHCP will not assign an address
to the card and it won't connect if I manually configure the address
either. This card was working in DF 2.0. As you can see from the
attached dmesg, I get several "livelock messages" when this interface
is config'ed in rc.conf and I get the "dc0: watchdog timeout" message
every 5 seconds. The xl0 built-in interface on the laptop works fine.
Note that if I boot the latop without the card and then insert it, I
immediately get the message "intr 10 at 40001/40000 hz, livelocked
limit engaged!"

I'm starting to get the feeling that I'm the only one that uses this
silly card with DFly. Are you guys trying to tell me I should toss it
and buy a decent card? :-)
