Avoid prerelease distros and 2. There aren’t reports of issues with discrete parts yet. These things are all intel based, and just giving a FYI out there for Epc folks. Apaprently the Suse dev farm have some with dead ethernet’s, a Linux dev has had his laptop screwed, and worryingly there’s a report of something similar happening with a RealTek ethernet card with the same symptoms. Thu Sep 25, 6: Likely, because I’ve been bugging them about having a warning page, and some over there are tied much more deeply into the developers than I will ever be. A few of the SuSe team did this, and bricked the hardware, leading to Intel providing an advisory in the lkml.

Really getting annoyed with this issue. Sep 6, Posts: The kernel doesn’t seem to perform any sort of range checking or validation of Xorg memory map requests, which means a bad mapping could include the EEPROM NVM without kernel interference. By the way I think the term ‘mistake’ is likely accurate in the above line. I am really a new-bie in the world of linux and any help will be really appreciated.

Intel Integrated Ethernet? Avoid prerelease distros and 2.6.27-rcX now
It isn’t the chips, since they work perfectly on older revisions of the kernel and other OSes aside from OpenBSD, where the same bug exists. If you want to use these distros anyway and do not make use of the Ethernet adapter, you can blacklist the ee driver so it is never loaded and thus your adapter is not at risk.
See the kernel bugzilla entry for reports from people who have tried using it. Intel has also provided patches 1 10br 3 that map the EEPROM read-only into the address space, likely 110bd the problem from the root. Ars Legatus Legionis et Subscriptor. Intel [HDA Intel], device 0:
