    Problem with a nic card


    Hello
    I just buy a box and of course I want to run linux on it (Sourcemage).
    First I recompile a 2.6.9rc1 kernel (the only recent and decent one I found without internet connection).
    Code:
    #dmesg | grep eth0 
    eth0: Yukon Gigabit Ethernet 10/10/1000Base-T Adaptater
    The module to use is sk98lin (integrated to the 2.6.x kernel branch). I don't forget to include this module during my compilation of course.
    I use a sourcemage soft called netconf to finish the configuration of my interface all seems to work fine.
    But when I modprobe the module:
    Code:
    #modprobe sk98lin 
    ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:02:00.0[A] ->GSI 11 (level, low) ->IRQ11 
    ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:02:00.0[A] ->GSI 11 (level, low) ->IRQ11 
    eth0: --ERROR-- 
    Class: internal software error 
    Nr: 0x1ae 
    Msg: General: Driver release date not initialized 
    eth0: --ERROR-- 
    Class: internal software error 
    Nr: 0x1ae 
    Msg: General: Driver release date not initialized 
    eth0: Yukon Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T Adaptater 
             PrefPort:A  RlmtMode: check Link State 
    dhcpcd[2875]: dhcpStart: retrying MAC address request (returned 00:00:00:00:00:00) 
    eth0: network connection is up #l gros sourire :D 
           speed:100 
           autonegotiation: yes 
           duplex mode: full 
           flowctrl:symmetric 
           irq moderation: disabled 
           scatter-gather: enabled 
    ASSERT net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_nat_helper.c:428 &ip_nat_lock write locked
    And my pc freezes I can't do anything
    I don't know how to read the kernel log to be more accurate in my description but if someone got a clue it will be great
    Thx

    the system logs stuff in the /var directory
    i'm pretty sure that the kernel log is located at /var/system

    It seems to me like the module is buggy. In that case, there's not much to do (except try to fix the bugs).

    I know
    I think I will write a lot of C by this time to get this nic work. I will check /var/system
    My problem right now is to find out where the code source of this buggy module.I got it but can't find it out.
    I try to mail the maintainer of the module: mailbox unknown
    Thx
    PS:I will try to post the logs of /var/system as soon as possible
