Q. I see following message in my logs files:

Linux bnx2: eth1: No interrupt was generated using MSI, switching to INTx mode

My server hangs occasionally after rebooting with above message in /var/log/message. How do I get rid of this problem under CentOS Linux / RHEL version 4.x?

A. This problem can be fixed by upgrading kernel provided by CentOS Linux 4.6 (RHEL 4.6+) or above only. This is well know driver problem. Upgrade your Linux distribution to latest version using up2date / yum command.
