Description Chris Runge 2003-02-18 02:57:50 UTC
Description of problem:

I realize this is probably the wrong component, so feel free to change it.

I configured my orinoco_pci wireless device with the redhat-config-network
program (after adding the line "alias eth1 orinoco_pci" to /etc/modules.conf).
After bringing up the device, which is successful, I get the following message:

RTNETLINK answers: No such device

I'm not sure if this is related, but dmesg shows the following:

ip_tables: (C) 2000-2002 Netfilter core team
eth1: Channel out of range (0)!
eth1: Error -110 setting multicast list.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

redhat-config-network-1.1.97-1 (in Phoebe 8.0.94)

this is more a kernel / driver configuration problem

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
