Description

removing the rtl81xx driver while the device is in your system or the device is being used results in an instant kdl.

performing a ifconfig --delete /dev... doesn't change the kdl situation.

Your /dev/net/rtl81xx/0 device is in use while this happens? Ie. an interface with that name exists and is up?

And if you delete the interface, and then remove (by deleting or moving it someplace else?) the driver, the same KDL appears?

What revision? Really the alpha1?

Version: R1/alpha1R1/Development

latest nightly.. sorry :)

tried everything in my powers to remove the /dev/net/rtl81xx/0 device (ifconfig ... down, ifconfig --delete ..., etc) still KDL's. The is the only driver that has this behavior, the rest are ok being removed while in use (we were troubleshooting an interrupt issue when this behavior was discovered, intel_extreme, hda, atheroswifi, ehci remove ok)

by "removing the driver" I mean moving it's binary file in /boot/system/add-ons/kernel/drivers/bin/ to the desktop to disable it on next boot.

Can you add the output of "ifconfig" after boot?

Is this still valid ?

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Probably not, the KDL shown in the ticket was likely fixed with the deinitialization changes in the compat layer, and ifconfig --delete of course does not KDL now.
