Ok, I'll take a look. I had an nvidia board which I was developing in but it died so this seems a little unusual to be unsupported (or flakey support to be more correct).. maybe the hardware is crap? I say that because my board was only 3 years old and was aging badly, sound died, one of the RAM slots died, overheating, especially in Windows... wasn't worth keeping.

Hightlight text and middle click, or if no middle button/scroll wheel click left and right buttons simultaneously.

Please check your cables as the pattern is rather erratic. Not saying it is cable related but it is very weird.

flywire,

You are not alone, some others have reported this since kernel 3.2.

Here is something to try.

At terminal type this.
Code:
echo  "options forcedeth msi=0 msix=0" > /etc/modprobe.d/forcedeth.conf


Reboot and see what happens.

Ref

Good luck!

Apparently it is a BIOS problem and updating fixes it, I guess James yours already has the newer BIOS.

So, flywire, the real solution is to update the BIOS, however the above work around I supplied should work.

Well the latest BIOS from the ASUS website hasn't fixed it:

-BIOS-
Date : 10/29/2008
Vendor : American Megatrends Inc. (www.ami.com)
Version : 0602
-Board-
Name : M2N-MX SE Plus
Vendor : ASUSTeK Computer INC. (SEAGATE, www.seagate.com)

I am away for about 10 days and will give the code a go then. It seems that I can't do this fix while running in RAM.

Very much appreciated to all, especially Mick and James.

Bummer, shame some vendors don't support their boards properly. It was around 2008 when the fix emerged.

You probably could append the options to your kernel line, but slightly differently:
Code:
puppy pfix=ram forcedeth.msi=0 forcedeth.msix=0

or
Code:
puppy pfix=ram forcedeth.msi=0,msix=0


One of those *should* work, no guarantees.

flywire, I must ask three Q's...

1.) Make and model of the computer in question is ...?
2.) Wifi/ethernet board installed is...?
3.) Dual-boot XP and Linux?

It is an assembled PC: http://ip-208-109-22-214.ip.secureserver.net/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=725258&sid=51f29ffb2149ca6970ee0138c3417268#725258
Integrated NIC, no wifi, boot from CD.

It seems that the problem is a bios issue with this motherboard and there are no upgrades available. Workaround from 01micko didn't work so I decided that I would give linux a miss until I get another computer with a different motherboard.

Thanks to all as I had no idea what was going on and at least this gives me the confidence to try again later.
