    Default opensuse 11.4 freezes with heavy network traffic

    Hi,

    i've posted this info previously on the internet forum as i saw somebody
    else having similar problems but as it looks like a wireless issue, i'm
    reporting it here.

    i'm using opensuse 11.4 x64 clean install on an asus M4A78LT-M,
    integrated ATI card and with a usb wireless device, linksys wusb54gc
    using the rt73usb driver and kde.Wireless device report version 0.1. Pc
    works fine, fast with no issues as long as i do not have heavy traffic
    on the wireless. If i download a file thru browser, ktorrent or i stream
    an avi file to my TV using dlna, pc completely freezes in about 1-2
    hours of the download start. /var/log/message shows nothing. The only 3
    lines before the hard reboot is -- mark----. i have already changed my
    setup from dhcp to fix ip to exclude dhcp negotiation of the picture but
    to no avail. I've removed Pulse audio as well as i recall similar issues
    on previous opensuse version but no improvement. There is absolutely no
    error or warn in any log files, just a a hard freeze. is a really hard
    hang, monitor is black, no response from keyboard or mouse, nothing,
    literally dead.

    I've searching for issues with this wifi driver or with the asus
    motherboard in linux but i could not find any. i though that usb wifi
    device should be the culprit but before buy a different one, i'll like
    to be sure that indeed it is the root cause.


    I'll enable the magic sysrq keys and i'll see if i can get something
    with it on next freeze. Any tips are welcome

    Thanks in advance

    Gonzalo

    It looks like i've found the culprit of the hard hangs and it was
    tvmobili. I've unload it and download files all night and server did not
    hang.

    Thanks

    That's good to know. When bad things happen, wireless is usually blamed, but
    once in a while it is not the problem.

    I hope the tvmobili people help you sort out the issue.

    well, unfortunately i was wrong. This time took longer to hang, probably
    not so much network traffic but at the end, it hard locked again with
    tvmobile unloaded. Magic Sysrq key did not work, /var/log/message shows
    nothing:

    So at 22.13 is when i found the pc locked and restarted.

    Xorg.log shows also nothing. so i do not know what else can i do to
    catch the root cause. Any tips?

    Thanks

    The logging you are looking at is delayed by some time, and will not show
    anything of a panic nature.

    Set up your transfer for testing and then switch to the logging console by using
    CTRL-ALT-F10. When the crash occurs, what shows on the screen? You will have to
    transcribe it by hand or take a picture and post it.

    HI, system freezed again but this time i could see the CTRL-ALT-F10
    screen and it looks to me ( i'm not a developer) that it is rt73usb
    driver related. He it goes

    If possible, please include a link or 2 of any hits that you get with Google.
    That saves some time for anyone that is trying to help.

    The email thread at
    http://us.generation-nt.com/answer/b...201745812.html
    indicates that there is a race condition in kernel 2.6.37. Although the problem
    is likely fixed in later kernels, the changes are too large and invasive to be
    backported to 2.6.37.

    Please add the wireless repository at
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.4/ and
    install the package named compat-wireless-kmp-desktop. If it still has the
    problem, please report that failure to this thread.

    Sorry about that. the link you posted is one that i've found.
    both we're talking about 2.6.37-rc8 kernel
    I'll add the repository and install the mentioned packet. do i have to
    do something else after that? backlist something or simple reboot?

    Thanks
