Tried both gcc-2.95.2 and kgcc alias egsc-2.91.66.

I unconfigured START_LOOPBACK (i'm using SuSE 7. almost 1, couldn't find a way to do the SuSE-upgrade procedure with a xfs-enabled kernel, only / and /boot are ext2), tried it again, an by box hang at loading the next network driver :-(. So i downloaded linux-2.4.5-xfs-05312001.patch.bz2 from oss.sgi.com, removed everything not necessary for xfs from it (kernel debugger, ac-patch things, lvm upgrades - upgraded myself to 0.9.1beta7 ...) and no it works! Is KDB broken ??Works for me :). This is top of tree as of Fri Jun 1 15:10:23 UTC 2001, configured with xfs and kdb. Linux ocs4 2.4.5-xfs #1 SMP Sat Jun 2 01:10:01 EST 2001 i686 unknown Entering non-interactive startup Setting network parameters: [ OK ] Bringing up interface lo: [ OK ] Bringing up interface eth0: [ OK ] Your problem sounds like a generic network problem, not XFS. There have been some recent patches by Jeff Garzick for timing related problems with network drivers on 2.4.5. Try linux-kernel.
I think its because of patches to the 2.4.5-tree applied to linux-xfs cvs tree. Vanilla kernel with only (i hope all) patches needed for xfs from linux-2.4.5-xfs-05312001.patch.bz2 works.
