I *was* running SuSE 10 x86_64 with no problems up until this morning
when I installed the latest security patch (a new kernel). Now I have no
network connection, my system is running at a snail's pace, and I can't
even reboot the machine.
I'm used to having to recompile my Nvidia graphics driver, and
reconfigure vmware whenever I get a new kernel like this. Now the
problem I seem to have is with my on-board NIC. In the past I have used
Nvidia's nvnet kernel module to support the CK804 network interface, but
this now seems to be screwed. Has anyone else noticed this behaviour?
Anyone using an Nforce4 motherboard might think twice before applying
this update, rather than just accepting it as I did.
Any hints/tips on how I might fix this would be greatly appreciated.
