6500 etherchannel issue?

    I have a 6500 (redundant) with 10 3750 singles and 4 stacks of two all
    configured with 2gb etherchannels across two line cards. If I disable
    card 4, thus bringing every channel down to one gig it all works
    peachy. When I enable the 2nd card it all goes horribly wrong.

    On a bare bones config I have only two vlans created, the vtp mode as
    transparent, etherchannel mode on, trunking as dot1q on. I leave it
    like this for a few minutes and my end to end starts to crumble with no
    emor messages and all port lights blazing away, I disconnect or shut
    down one of my line cards and it all comes back

    It must be the etherchannel!

    Spanning-tree is left at default. My stacks are all happy and

    Anybody any good ideas?

    Ever tried PaGP or LACP to form the channels?

    Clearly this looks like a loop.

    As I recall the current recommendation is to have the channels
    on desirable/desirable (one end/other end). I cannot recall the details
    however I think that it is to do with avoiding loops.

    I am not sure what the recommendation is regarding trunking.
    It seems less likely to go horribly wrong but I now quite fancy
    a similar configuration there too.

    Says: trunk mode on - encapsulation negotiate off
    no comment on PAgP.
