Update on xl0 issues and NFS issues:

I unfortunatly left my realtek network card in work so I'll do this tomorrow night instead of tonight.

But I've now installed the absolute latest world/kernel on both server and client again to see if the hang has gone.

I have noticed the NFS transfer hangs at the same point always. If I cp mysql-4.0.16.tar.gz to /usr/src it hangs instantly and always with this filesize:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 122880 Nov 25 18:30 mysql-4.0.16.tar.gz

Is that significant in any way?

Another test I just did is swap the roles of the client and server around. So I've ran a server on the client and mounted the directory on the server.

Doing this and NFS works perfectly writing to the server but not reading. It hangs whilst reading.

Left for 5 minutes so far:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 65536 Nov 25 18:39 mysql-4.0.16.tar.gz

This filesize looks significant to me. Like a buffer is full or something.

So this suggests I have a problem only in the one direction. And this is also the direction I have the xl0 transfer problems with. I would suggest my problems are totally down to the xl0 card/driver and not NFS related at all.

I will find this out once and for all when I test with the realtek card tomorrow night (when I remember to bring it home from work).

The affected card is:
