Hello all, I have CentOS linux installed and using a PCMCIA Melco LPC3-TX card. Once in a while (especially very long idle time with apache, mysql or some other network service running) the shell prompt display an error:
BUG: warning at drivers/net/pcmcia/axnet_cs.c:1586/ei_rx_overrun() (Not tainted)
What does this mean in terms of my network card or driver? I'm using the driver that comes with kernel 2.6, should I find a more updated driver?
That explains it then. Your console is the monitor display. So in addition to getting the user login-related stuff, it's also where terminal-destinated system messages display. Sometimes rather rudely, since it doesn't bother to check what you're doing in the login session when it pops out a log message.
