eth0: freeing mc frame


Recommended Posts

I took a look at my syslog today, and it's full of messages similar to this one:


Sep 10 04:35:01 Mandrake kernel: eth0: freeing mc frame.

Sep 10 04:39:39 Mandrake last message repeated 30 times

what does it mean, how do I fix it?

googling only seems to dig up stuff that's several years old.

From what I've read this is a result of IPv6 and the network card drivers not playing well with it.


Try disabling ipv6 by editing /etc/modprobe.conf to add:

alias net-pf-10 off


Although, really, if it isn't causing any problems you can likely just ignore it.
