New(?) Kernel still loses network under load]



The weekend's kernel update again resulted in a system that
can't keep the networks going for long.  Fedora stopped talking
to the Internet a few hours after the updated kernel was booted.

I notice that only the initrd file was updated.  The vmlinuz
file shows a feb 24 date.  Yum problem?

Is Linux growning so large it is becoming unmaintainable?

The previously reported problem in kernel 3895 is present
in 2911.  Eth0 stopped working after about 20 minutes.
The workaround is to revert to the 2869 kernel which
does hot have this defect.

>Since updating to the FC6 386 2895 kernel I have a number
of partial failures of the Ethernet system under heavy load.
System: Asus a8n-e socket 939 with 3 GB RAM running 386 FC6.
Eth0 is a PCI 10/100 NIC, eth1 is the onboard gigabit NIC.
NAT controlled by rc.firewall 2.4.  Eth0 connects to the
cable modem, eth1 to the local net.
