Description Harvey Stein 1999-12-21 18:31:04 UTC
I added 4 ethernet cards to my box. Kudzu very nicely detected three of them and prompted me for config info (such as IP addresses, etc). The info got into /etc/sysconfig/hwconfig. However, the info didn't take effect. The module aliases went into /etc/conf.modules, but I had a /etc/modules.conf (or maybe visa-versa - I'm not at the box now to check). In any case, the system read the one that wasn't modified, so the modules didn't get loaded at boot time. This maybe is a kudzu install bug in that its post install should maybe copy the other modules config file into the one kudzu wants to work with, mv the old one & say something about this at installation time. After fixing this, the interfaces still didn't come up at boot time. As I said, kudzu prompted me for IP addresses, gateways, etc, when it detected the hardware change, but it didn't seem to get the info into /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth*. I had to add the interfaces again (I think I used linuxconf). Kudzu should either create the ifcfg-eth* files or it shouldn't prompt for the info.

It should create these files, via the netconfig program. There were a couple of bugs fixed in regard to this; does using the kudzu in the beta work any better?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-24 20:37:59 UTC
OK. Some more bugs have been fixed in the latest kudzu builds; please reopen if this persists with kudzu-0.33-1 or later.

I just intalled Fedora Core1 on a PC that just three hours ago was running perfectly using Redhat 9. With Redhat 9 the Ethernet using DHCP was setup and installed perfectly. Fedora saw the card but it would not work. I looked up info at linuxquestons.org and here's what I found and it worked for me. --------------------------------------------- You are probably experiencing a bug with Kudzu and the 3Com network driver. See the following URL : http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla...g.cgi?id=107389 If this is the case, you can try disabling "kudzu" as a workaround : - Change to the root user with the command "su -" - Disable Kudzu in the runlevels 3, 4 and 5 with the command "chkconfig --level 345 kudzu off" - Reboot the system. Note : Kudzu is a program which detects and configures new and/or changed hardware on a system. --------------------------------------
