Description Peter Fales 2008-05-23 20:22:39 UTC
Description of problem:

In Fedora 9, networking broke after upgrade of kernel from 2.6.25-14.fc9 to  The older kernel "just worked" and loaded the e100 driver
automatically.  The new kernel does not include e100.ko, and no alternate is
(obviously) available.

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

The file /lib/modules/ does exist
in a proper installation.  Check rpm -V kernel and that the file is there.
If it is, does "modprobe e100" give any errors, or messages in dmesg?

Comment 2 Peter Fales 2008-05-24 01:14:21 UTC
Sorry - that's something I should have checked.  Yes, rpm -V shows that lots of
files are missing.  I'm not sure what happened.  I jumped to conclusions because
the problem showed up right after the "yum update" and there were no obvious
problems or errors in the update process.  

It seems like there still may be a bug buried here somewhere, but it's not this one.

Never mind!
