Hi there,
after playing around with dragonfly for quite some weeks I decided
it is time to set uo a production environment and I remembered an old IBM eServer 325
that I could use for this purpose.
Installing and compiling a SMP kernel worked flawlessly however there is one major bug:
The machine has two bge cards bge0 and bge1 the latter works fine but the first
always gives watchdog timeouts.
This happens regardless of wheather I am running a UP or SMP kernel.
Turnig off APIC_IO while using an SMP kernel also made no difference.
Any ideas to why this might be happening ?
Machines are down for maintenance and I have not yet grabbed a full dmesg,
sorry for that.
