Question eth0: interrupt(s) dropped! messages 

Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues
Date: 1999, Nov 01
From: Rick Lerner rlerner

PROBLEM:  My network PCCard appears to work fine, but /var/log/messages
contains hundreds of lines containing the following error message:

	 Nov  1 15:46:06 localhost kernel: eth0: interrupt(s) dropped! 

Any ideas what is wrong?

I recently updated my laptop from RedHat 5.1 to 6.1.  To complete the
upgrade I needed to add an ifcfg-eth0 file with the following contents:

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
ONBOOT=no

I also added links to /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia in /etc/rc.d/rc[345].d

Otherwise, the pcmcia configuration files are the ones installed by RedHat.

Thanks for any information,
