    Question tg3_stop_block timed out


    I have an old Proliant DL380 G4 with the Broadcom BCM5704 network adapters. I installed CentOS 6.2, and when I bring up an interface I get a dump to the screen from the tg3 driver about tg3_stop_block timed out, ofs=4800 enable_bit=2

    Searching found a few references to CentOS/RHEL 3 and 4, and a suggestion to turn TSO off but that didn't help.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Broadcom has released much more up-to-date drivers for current Linux systems. Not sure if your old gear is involved, but go to the broadcom web site support sections and search for updated linux drivers.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
