Just in case anyone will be looking for this in future I said
I'd post some of my results with recent problems.
First, a couple of months ago I had a problem with this error, after
compiling 2.4.0 and using the ne module for my ethernet card:
eth0: trigger_send() called with the transmitter busy.
Hw, address read/write mismap 0
Hw, address read/write mismap 1
Hw, address read/write mismap 2
Hw, address read/write mismap 3
Hw, address read/write mismap 4
Hw, address read/write mismap 5
I don't know where this came from but it disappeared when I
removed the options ne line from /etc/modules.conf
The second recent problem was with regard to my cd-rom under 2.4.9.
I was getting an error something like ide_proc_dma something or other
and the computer was hanging.
I recompiled the kernel from scratch and left out the following and it
sorted the problem:
ATA/IDE/MFM/RLL Support --->
IDE, ATA and ATAPI Block Devices -->
[ ] Use PCI DMA by default when available
That's about it. Just for people who have either of these problems in
On a side note, I still haven't gotten XFree86 4.1.0 to work properly.
But that's for another day!!
Chat ya later,
