Default nvenet kernel messages

I've gotten a couple of strange "kernel messages" today related to the nv(e?)net module. One happened right after I sent an e-mail, the second after I had clicked "preview" in a forum BBS board [in fact, I think it was this one... yup, when I was posting about a missing DRI library message]

Here are the lines in question [from /var/log/messages]:
Nov  9 00:51:01 BeastBoy kernel: nvenet_xmit - skb->len  > priv->max_frame_size
Nov  9 08:01:13 BeastBoy kernel: nvenet_xmit - skb->len  > priv->max_frame_size
Is there anything I need to worry about because of this?

yes since nvnet isn't supported by nvidia you should change to the forcedeth driver. Nvidia contributed to it and are helping maintain it.

Unhappy Re: nvenet kernel messages

I find that odd given that the Nvidia site promotes the nvnet driver and the forcedeth driver does not seem to work with the on board LAN.

I am using an Asus A8N5X motherboard with the Nvidia chipset with Debian Linux (kernel 2.6.8-2) and forcedeth is a no go. The nvnet driver works, but keeps posting the error to syslog.

localhost kernel: nvenet_xmit - skb->len > priv->max_frame_size

I may need to just get an external card.

Default Re: nvenet kernel messages

This message is a known nvnet bug:
nvenet_xmit - skb->len > priv->max_frame_size

The latest forcedeth (version 0.49 or later) fully supports all hardware on the market.
