Hi List,

I've been having some problems with intel etherpro 100 cards on my

the nodes are 1ghz athlons 64meg pc133 on a asus a7pro mb. ibm 10.2 gig

after a reboot of the nodes, and sometimes during a run the card reports
no rx buffers or resources.

from the logs

00:02:B3:0B:A7:4A, I/O at 0xa400, IRQ 11.

May  3 19:48:12 node04 kernel: eth0: card reports no RX buffers.

Has anyone else seen this problem or can explain to me what might be going
on. after rebooting this node by hand it came up ok. This problem occoured
on 7/64 nodes.
