Problem is watchdog timeouts with a Broadcom GigE interface on a Tyan
S4881 using 7.4-PRERELEASE as of 11/22 and 7.3-STABLE as of 11/11.
I've done the following, with no success:
(1) Tried the second port, bge1, in case the first had gone bad, and
(2) Recompiled samba34 (failure occurs when copying large files using
I'm currently cvup'ing Release 7.3 and will see if compiling and
installing that version eliminates the problem.
The ultimate solution may involve replacing the Tyan S4881 with a S4882 so
I can install other PCI-X cards (I'm unable to get the S4881 to assign
interrupts to PCI-X or PCI-E cards, a problem I've never seen before)
