ifconfig fxp0 down
ifconfig fxp0 up
If that makes it go, there might be a common problem somewhere in the
kernel, since I have to do that once in a while on my 1.3I machine of
around two weeks ago. I'm using the de driver, though.
On the 1.3I machine I have, I can't even _get_ fxp0 to work
correctly. My guess is a multicast packet received will kill it, but
I don't know. The machine boots, stays up for under 30 seconds, then
locks up. The OSPF packets on the network just happen to be every 30
seconds, and it locks _right_ after receiving one. And no, I'm not
running gated or routed.
