Problem with IBM Token Ring Adapter
Posted on 1997-11-20
I have recompiled my kernel using the 2.0.32 source. It seems to have compiled fine axcept I keep getting strange consolde messages continuously throughout my root login sessions. Here is the message:
tr0: Line errors 01, Internal errors 00, Burst errors 00
A/C errors 00, Abort delimeters 00, Lost frames 00
Receive congestion count 00, Frame occupied errors 00
Frequency errors FF, token errors 00
The machine is a dual pentium 200 mmx tyan mboard, ibm auto 16/4 ISA network card (irq 2 0A20-0A23), awe64 sound board (irq 5, 220, dma 1 & 5), matrox mill 2 vid board, 64 meggers of ram.
The network connections appears to work correctly albeit the erros, but I have not tested it too much such as ping etc...
Any help is greatly appreciated,
p.s. Also, I noticed on this older kernel it does not tell you it is a multi processor kernel, how do you make sure the kernel compiled to use both cpus? I know the newer 2.1.x kernles specifically say multiprocessor kernel upon boot up.
