Re: [linux-tr] Olympic driver not SMP safe
As Adrian wrote it, I posted a note in an IBM forum where I explained the
I install RH6.0 on a netfinity 5500m20 ( 4 PIII) with a PCI TokenRing card.
I upgraded the kernel to 2.2.11 (or 2.2.10 or 2.2.12pre5) and applied the
DJ Barrow patch (to make it SMP safe?)
I telnet from my thinkpad to the netfinity, export the DISPLAY=thinpad:0
and launch xosview/netscape and wait about 5 minutes ...
The response time (ping) then reaches 4 to 8 seconds. I have to restart
the adapter to make it okay.
I do not know what is wrong: either the olympic driver or the token ring
layer and I am not able to correct it. But I am ready to test any patch
and ready to welcome anybody in Montpellier interested in debugging this

Subject: [linux-tr] Olympic driver not SMP safe
Someone here has posted saying that the PCI driver isn't SMP safe - are
there any plans to make it so? I'm sure we could find testers if you need
