I am experiencing the PCI bus error for a network card(Realtek 8139)
whenever it tries to transmit packets it prints the error like
eth0: PCI Bus error 0x2a80.
PCI status 0x2a80 as per pci specs suggests pci master and target
other basic infrastructures like interupts , pci-dma and cards pci
resources are well in place.also i am able to receive all packets.
I have ensured other pci config registers like Latency timer and
command register are initialised to appropiate values.
pci command has been set to 0x7 ( io + mem + busmaster).
1.what can be other reasons for this to happen ..?
2.if pci master and target abort happens how the card is able to recive
3.does this situation demand pci debugging or driver level debugging?
