hello,
how can I solve this problem :

My qube 2 freezes when I transfer a lot of datas through the network.
I've seen the patches in Kumba directory for the tulip driver, but I'm not sure the way to install them : kernel, colo... ??

If anyone has the answer ?

Thanks.

Those patches in my dev folder are old and outdated. I'm a packrat, so I tend to keep things around longer than they should be kept.

What version of kernel are you running?

Hello Kumba,

I use 2.4.18.

I've seen in this forum that users have already had this problem, but I don't know how to solve it.

Someone told to switch the interface to 100 half duplex... but I would like to use Full.

You're using a very old kernel - Likely the debian 2.4.18. Have you installed gentoo on this RaQ2, or are you still running an older debian install or even the old CobaltOS?

Your problems are a known issue with 2.4.18. Upgrading the kernel (sounds almost like you need a complete re-install) will definitely fix your lockup issues.
