What version of the Epic 100 driver are you using? I haven't seen this
problem of "spewing" PCI Bus errors since I started using version 1.02
of the driver and later. Earlier versions of the driver filled up my
syslog message file with megabytes of error messages.
P.S. You should probably should use the linux-epic list rather than the
linux-epic-announce list for reporting problems.
