SUMMARY: Sparc 5 hangs running token ring

The original problem was a Sparc 5 running Solaris 1.1.1 Rev B hangs when using
token ring as its only network port.

The two responses that hit on the solution were as follows:

>From: "Michael (M.A.) Meystel" <MEYSTMA@DUVM.BITNET>
What revision of the token ring board do you have installed in your
sparc? (you can tell from the part number on the will look
like xxx-xxxx-XX, where the last XX is the revision number.)

If it is 02, that MIGHT be the problem.

(Sun admitted that the 02 rev has problems)

>From: (Antoan Goshev (Vector - Pre-Sales Mng))
Couple of months ago we had exactly the same problem with SS5. The fix appears
to patch 101508-06 or later. Without it you can't use any additional SBUS card
in SS5.

(This is a jumbo kernel patch for sun4m that sun released)

Thanks for the quick and correct responses.
