Question Interrupt problem with P60, WaveLAN/IEEE and TI-1221 

Forum: PCMCIA Wireless Network Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Aug 02
From: Sami Pitko spitko

The problem is that WaveLAN/IEEE is initialized properly but it gives "transmit timeout" errors. The configuration works with NT4 on same hardware (tested by swapping harddrives).

Hardware:
- AST Bravo MS P/60 (BIOS dated 1995)
- Lucent/Orinoco WaveLAN/IEEE

Linux distribution RedHat 6.2 (Zoot)

The interrupt counter is not incrementing in /proc/interrupts

# cat /proc/interrupts
 10: 0 XT-PIC wavelan2_cs

And when the error messages go to /var/log/messages, they go in bursts, like after filling up interrupt queue.

# tail /var/log/messages
Aug 2 23:26:13 kernel: eth1: Transmit timeout.
Aug 2 23:27:33 last message repeated 3 times
Aug 2 23:28:43 last message repeated 3 times

I have tested with various PCIC_OPTS (irq_mode=1 or 0) and CORE_OPTS, but none of them seem to work.

Is it simply too old hardware as dump_pirq cannot find anything?

Message Administration

This form allows you to delete, move, or copy one or more messages. You can move messages by copying and deleting the original. The action will be applied to the messages you select above and all replies to those selected messages.


If you want to copy or move messages, specify the HyperNews path of a destination forum or message that all messages will be copied or moved to. The destination must already exist, so maybe create it first.

Path of Destination (a Forum or Message): (e.g. "test")

Notify Subscribers at destination
NO


If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages
NO


Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
