Next up, started swapping around cards. I noticed that one of my 3 3c905C cards hadn't been giving the watchdog timeout errors that I could remember, even though I'm doubting 2/3 of my previously-good cards are actually bad, but I kept that one at xl1 and tried a good 3c905B as xl0. This worked a little differently, now instead of watchdog timeouts, on the previously-normal xl1 I get: Mar 15 05:56:51 imogen kernel: xl1: transmission error: 90 Mar 15 05:56:51 imogen kernel: xl1: tx underrun, increasing tx start threshold to 120 bytes I know it's *technically* an informational message and not a problem, I'm a perfectionist and would prefer it not to be there. Perhaps I need to start from stratch with some em* cards, they've been working well for me everywhere else.
