Y-rcZ Where X, and Y are the first two numbers of the kernel version, and Z is the release candidate number if it exists. Are you new to LinuxQuestions. Not sure if it got the system-freezing oops or just the errors leading up to that. I’d like to use this ethernet adapter at home but the machine is running Ubuntu Note that despite this output, the system continued to run just fine.

ADMtek ADM8211 devices

I was also not completely sure if it was this device causing the issue or interplay between this device and a number of other networking USB devices that were used llnux work. Other bug subscribers Subscribe someone else. Armed with this new knowledge, I re-tested some of the builds I had tested previously now with image-extra and found this.

Having a problem logging in? I suppose this is the fix that should be committed. Penalver penalvch on The adapter seems to be stable now.

I downloaded current linux HEAD source and verified the code still looks incorrect it does. Click Here to receive this Complete Guide absolutely free. I don’t know how the kernel is allocating this memory but I guess the underlying allocation pattern of the “pool” code was able to hide the effect of the overrun and this change merely exposed it by changing the allocation pattern.


They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own. I’m including the kernel log which has some bad stuff happening in it. In the absence of a reply to my question, I tried downloading various binary kernels to at least narrow down the scope of the bisecting I’ll have to do.

Sorry for the delay in posting this. If testing on your main install would be inconvenient, one may: It seems the My testing yesterday was booting with the USB dongle inserted so that networking config could be applied during boot, similarly to how I intend to run the system.

ADMtek – LinuxMIPS

Strangely, the USB dongle worked without that package but clearly there’s an interaction with something else that needs a module from that package. I have not seen even a hint of a problem yet. Then I’ll start the git bisect properly. From what I can see, this should make the usable buffer consistently smaller than the old structure allowed for by 2 bytes. I brought the interface up with a static IP and the system remained up for well over 5 minutes before it died.

ADMtek Driver for linux

I had to jump through some hoops to update the BIOS since the updater was a Windows binary and this machine does not have Windows on it. This bug affects 1 person.

It worked fine for me with older distributions including Ubuntu Is there a recommended way to fetch this monstrosity over a low-bandwidth, low-reliability link? Admtdk upgrade log present probably fresh install UserGroups: I might try some more binary kernels in this range while I sort out how to do source builds in case there are more commits than binaries – which is what I’m expecting.

CONFIG_ADM8211: ADMtek ADM8211 support

I guess some time during Saucy, the packaging was changed? I have not had stability issues with the machine but plugging in the USB Ethernet reliably makes it freeze within minutes. Penalver penalvch wrote on The driver linus seems to be the same person, maybe they have some recollection that helps because the change itself does not enlighten me.
