Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox-3.5

$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 9.10
Release: 9.10

I expect: skge module to load, and eth0 to work.

What I experienced: The skge module loads, creates eth0. The interface establishes a connection to the local network, but IP traffic doesn't make it out nor in to the interface. tcpdump reveals no outside packets.

The second NIC (eth1) on the computer works as expected (and uses forcedeth module). I have changed out cat5 cables, and have verified connectivity on the local network using eth1 with the same cables.

tcpdump on eth0 reveals only outgoing ARP requests -- never anything from other computers. Other computers using arping on the local network cannot see the machine in question using arping.

There are no firewalls, or packet filtering on the network segment or on hosts attached to the eth0 network.

This machine was recently switched from i386 Fedora 11 to Ubuntu 9.10 beta amd64. In Fedora 11, it had both interfaces working properly.

I don't know if it has anything to do with systems having more than 4GB of RAM, but did see a bug with that reported in regards to skge -- however, it didn't seem to have the same symptoms as I have experienced.

Here's how I was diagnosing:
# modprobe skge debug=16

# /sbin/ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.11/24 up

# ping -c 10 -s 1000 192.168.1.1

I wanted to update this bug...

dhclient eth0 resulted in a successful request and I got the appropriate IP address from the DHCP server (which is also my default gateway). Unfortunately, the same behavior (of no inbound traffic) continues.

Here's the output of tcpdump while arping the default gw (milton.local is the host with the problem and has IP 192.168.1.11)

root@milton:/home/ernst# tcpdump

I had the same problem on 2.6.29 - 2.6.32 (from mainline ppa) each day. The 2.6.33-rc5 works good for a few days at least. May be it can help to find bug.
