I'm using an Alpha AXPpci 33 with an mandrake
2.4.19-1mdkcustom kernel. When I try to load the 8139too
driver for a 8139C card I get this error message on
console, and the machine becomes unusable:
"unknown error log size 800"
I'm using the 0.9.25 driver. I'll try to build a kernel with
debugging and post more info if possible.

In addition, I tried to compile 0.9.26 on this system, but I
didn't get it compiled. I changed the CFLAGS to
-mcpu=ev4 in the Makefile.
I also just copied 8139too.c to the 2.4.19-mdk1 source
tree, but it broke in exactly the same way during
compiling:
