I've updated my kernel to version 3.12.13 and Gkrellm is not able to monitor the Eth* interfaces.
reverting to the old kernel version (3.7.10) makes it go back to normal and I recompiled the new kernel with every module I can think may be related to network interface monitoring.

After messing around with lsof | grep gkrellm I found that the file /proc/<number>/net/dev is what gkrelllm uses to keep tabs on the net interfaces, mine is returning something like this on the new kernel:
Code:

Inter-|   Receive                                                |  Transmit
 face |bytes    packets errs drop fifo frame compressed multicast|bytes    packets errs drop fifo colls carrier compressed
  eth1:       0       0    0    1    0     0          0         0        0       0    0    0    0     0       0          0
    lo:  209341    2405    0    0    0     0          0         0   209341    2405    0    0    0     0       0          0


Does anyone knows if there was some API changes or something of the sort? Or which module should I being selecting (or not selecting) when compiling the kernel.

Thanks.

Didn't noticed before, but it is actually not reporting packets there either. The network itself never stopped working.
nice catch, but what can be causing this? Could be the alx driver?

Thought you may have had that u-effin-dev (udev) update kludge the interface name, but no that looks normal (seeing "eth1" = 8) ) I tried sorry.
