I don't see anything related to forcedeth problems in your dmesg. The problem was present when you ran dmesg ?

How did you determine that the network was dead?
the copying of the file timesout, any browser refresh fails, smb shares are unavailable. IIRC the services panel (system-config-services) would show only lo as active, but don't quote me on that one

Right, I found the source and modified it for kernel 2.6.19/FC6. I reloaded forcedeth and refreshed dmesg at that link so that shows, at the end, where it is working correctly. These lines occured when it failed.
Code:
/dev/vmmon[9206]: Module vmmon: unloaded
bridge-eth0: down
bridge-eth0: detached
eth0: no IPv6 routers present

Those entries have nothing to do with forcedeth, they are vmware specific. Does this problem reproduce if you're not using vmware?

I wondered if after some number of hours it would fail for me but it's been OK now for about 10 hours. It reliably died everytime I copied a large file over the gigabit portion of my LAN. I never had freezes though. Sorry.

I unloaded vmware services and it still died. when Fedora first released 2.6.19 kernel I *think* I tried with it removed entirely. This build seems to work, so I'm still "blaming" forcedeth

in my dmesg there's also a gnome-vfs-daemon segfault. I had concluded that whatever was happening wasn't logged explicitely, that the vmnet stuff was it polling the networking subsystem and finding it hosed. just guessing....

I'm still getting this, though
Code:
Losing some ticks... checking if CPU frequency changed.
