[Bug 1374747] Re: e1000e causes intermittent freezes


Kasper F. Brandt, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu better. As per http://download.lenovo.com/express/ddfm.html an update to your BIOS is available (2.30). If you update to this following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BiosUpdate does it change anything?  If it doesn't, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

Please note your current BIOS is already in the Bug Description, so
posting this on the old BIOS would not be helpful. As well, you don't
have to create a new bug report.

For more on BIOS updates and linux, please see

Once the BIOS is updated, then please mark this report Status Confirmed.

Thank you for your understanding.

  e1000e causes intermittent freezes

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When e1000e is loaded and the interface is up the systems freezes for
  about a ½ second every 4 seconds. I took special note of these lines
  in the dmesg output:

  [    2.339056] e1000e 0000:00:19.0 (unregistered net_device): Failed to initialize MSI interrupts.  Falling back to legacy interrupts.
  [    2.900771] e1000e 0000:00:19.0 (unregistered net_device): Hardware Error

  And one additional Hardware Error everytime I brought the interface up
  or down.
