Re: Ethernet bge0 problems


did you get the output requested? was it helpful? I continue to have these problems, I am running a quite recent current.

It most often happen when the system is more or less busy, especially swapping, and there is a peak in network traffic. Usually when exporting display and you un-minimize an application: the system will swap and the whole window content needs to refreshed and "bum" it hangs.

NetBSD grid 5.99.56 NetBSD 5.99.56 (nc6120) #0: Tue Oct 4 10:53:05 CEST 2011 root@grid:/usr/obj/sys/arch/i386/compile/nc6120 i386

And I get the same error.

grid$ ifconfig bge0

sadly, I still receive this:

bge0: watchdog timeout -- resetting

Could you post the output of:

% grep bge0 /var/run/dmesg.boot

Details of any ifconfig(8) checksum or TCP offloading options being
used would be useful too.

I'm using a bge(4) device to post this, so the driver works for some
