Description Falko Pilz 2004-10-13 12:01:32 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-DE; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040803 Firefox/0.9.3 Description of problem: Hello, all Linuxguest on our zVM has 2 QDIO (virtuell) interfaces one to over an vswitch to the real LAN and on to a VM internal "guestlan". So at the install both are present and anaconda does them show in Network config dialog. After the reboot the secound interface with his entry at /etc/chandev was lost so the guestlan wasn't abel to connect. After apply the entry and calling echo "reset_conf\;read_conf" > /proc/chandev the device seems to be initialized. but without reloading the qeth kernel module it doesn't be able to aktivate. service network restart shows: "qeth device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization." After stoping eth0 from a x3270 and unloading qeth.o the "service network start" does bring up the interface. I doesn't know if it is an ifconfig or a kernel(module) failure, because the driver should aktivate after reread chandev.conf. Regards Falko Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Boot after new install 2.edit /etc/chandev.conf 3.echo "reset_conf\;read_conf" > /proc/chandev 4. service network restart Actual Results: ifup: qeth device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization. network: Bringing up interface eth1: failed Expected Results: kernel: qeth: Trying to use card with devnos 0xA500/0xA501/0xA502 kernel: qeth: Device 0xA500/0xA501/0xA502 is an OSD Express card (level: V447) kernel: with link type Gigabit Eth (no portname needed by interface) ... kernel: ip_tables: (C) 2000-2002 Netfilter core team ifup: Cannot get driver information: Operation not supported network: Bringing up interface eth1: succeeded Additional info: It appears in both Arch's S390 and S390x.
